Revlon Ritzy Nail Polish Swatch and Review
Application isn't pretty, the base color being to sheer to wear on it's own and adding a second coat requires patience and hard work to get an even distribution of glitter across the nail. It clumps fast so you've gotta be on top of it. I find the black base doesn't to the glitter justice, I actually liked it better halfway thorough the removal process; when I stripped some of the black off, revealing more of the glitter. The trouble with leaving in that stage is the gritty texture.
Another tip I have for you, with chunky glitter polishes, file the nail gently after you are done and before the top coat. I always manage to get one random glitter dried on the edge, gripping on everything I touch. Worst. Feeling. Ever.
Removal was, of course, a nightmare. Like with any glitter polish, arm yourself with tons of cotton pads, acetone based remover and patience. I like to wrap bits of acetone soaked cotton pads around each nail and wait for a few minutes before attempting the actual removal. My nails are always stripped after the process, I usually need to buff, do a lemon treatment and hydrate them with my richest balm.
What do you think? Is this polish worth it? I actually like how it looks.
