I haven't dabble much into Revlon except their quick dry formula and had avoided their Brilliant Strength/Gel stuff on the basis of some pretty bad experiences in the past.
Then I went to Dollar Tree and found a number of bottle of Brilliant Strength and thought I could try them out with a low risk price tag of a dollar.
Lo and behold I was pleasantly surprised!
Revlon Brilliant Strength Beguile
Three coats, no top coat.
I wore this polish for several days and it wore like it meant it. No tip wear to speak of and no chips. Holy mackerel!
It dried like a charm, which was a real head turner for me. That alone just boggled my mind.
A final win, truly, was that it reminded of a certain polish - Essie Dive Bar - that did not live up to its promise. This one has the blue shimmer that turns teal and shifts all the way to purple. I could only capture the blue and purple, but there is teal and it's gorgeous.
The current retail version is a little smaller, but appears to be the same concept. Local Shopko had 40% off, so who knows how often they turn over the colors, but I think keeping an eye out at the Dollar tree is worthwhile.
The good news is that these are prevalent on eBay and at a really affordable price point if you don't have access to them in the retail stores or a Dollar Tree.
Thank you for reading my little nail polish journal!
