I’m a sucker for polishes of this color. Which is why I couldn’t resist it when I saw it at the grocery store the other day. I don’t really own any Revlon polishes, but this was a great buy.
Green tinged shimmering yellow.
Zealous is a green tinged yellow polish, with really pretty micro-shimmer throughout. It’s definitely more yellow than green, but has a nice balance. A chartreuse hue. Even though my skin has a lot of yellow in it, it doesn’t look bad against my skin. I would though, like to see this color on a cooler skin tone. I think it would look really cool!
Easy application, not the best wear time
This polish was a bit streaky on the first coat, but it evened out by the second. I did use three coats just to make sure everything was even and completely opaque. I didn’t have any issues with the formula, but I really loved this polish and wish the wear time was better. But then again, I never get good wear times from any polishes. I’ll just have to use it again soon 🙂
Where to Buy: Drugstores / $ 5
Have you seen Zealous at the drugstore? Do you own it? Do you like these off beat colors or are yellow nails still a no go for you?
bright orange sherbet!
Hey everyone! It’s great to be back, it’s been so long since I’ve posted! I’ve been very busy lately, but have been taking plenty of pictures and still have lots of polish to share with you all. I’ve had this one for a few weeks now and finally got around to wearing it: Revlon’s Siren.
This packaging was revived for the Revlon Limited Edition Fire & Ice Collection and for whatever reason, I was beside myself trying to get my paws on some of it. I succeeded in picking up Siren and was waiting for the perfect weather for this bright orange.
To be honest, I thought that this was going to come out more coral on me, but it definitely did not. What you see is what you get with Siren: bright and bubbly orange creme. It’s not as dramatic or intense an orange as some other polishes, when I compared it to a piece of orange clothing I had, you could tell this was somewhat softer (if that’s possible for orange), almost kind of like an orange sherbet.
I ended up liking this color a lot, however I felt the finish of it was rather dull. For me, a creme has to be either nice and smooth and shiny or smooth and matte. This came out kind of lackluster on that end. It did apply nicely in two coats and is opaque, it wore fairly well too. Overall, I’m pleased with Siren and think it’s a great summer color. I’m looking forward to putting a nice shimmer over it next time and think it’ll look really good on toes.
Hope warm weather is coming everyone’s way!
