I'm Swatchin' You - Revlon Royal

I have the much loved and hated Revlon Royal for you today.  It is a deep royal blue jelly.  The formula was meh.  The first coat is a little uneven with some balding.  The second coat levels nicely, but a third coat would be needed for full opacity.  And despite this being in the Top Speed line, I found the drying time to be more like Bottom Speed.  It was slow to dry, and even my SV top coat didn't seem to do much for it.  I have used this color in a tape mani before (see here).  And I had to wait twice as long as usual before I could safely tape it off.  The brush was okay, but mine is a little wonky.  There were a couple of bristles that were looped, so I had to cut them out.  Overall, it's a nice color, but a little tricky to work with.

SH Double Duty and SV for base and top.


  1. I could not agree more! Nice colour, tricky to work with... But when it looks right, man I love it! :)

  2. Wow! Love the dramatic color on you!
