Nails: Revlon Midnight Sparkle Swatches + Review

Photobucket
So I showed you Brilliant Bordeaux earlier & this is the 2nd of the 3 I'm putting up today. I loved this color & then I got a bit of "haven't I seen this before somewhere?" Yes, I think I did. I adore Polish Insomniac & recently I was lurking her Top 20 Nail Polish list & spied Deborah Lippman's Lady Sings the Blues.

I don't think it is DEAD ON but it definitely gives me the same look & I'm quite happy with the under $5 price tag. This is so incredibly opaque that you only need 2 thin coats. I used 2 for more glitter. I disected it a bit & found that the glitter is indeed silver & not a light blue or anything. It won't show up silver though because the inky blue is so...inky!

Revlon Midnight Sparkle: An inky navy base with silver small glitter & silver medium glitter.

You can see from Polish Insomniac's swatches of Deborah Lippman's Lady Sings the Blues that it isn't a dead on dupe because that one is a jelly. This dries super fast, probably because it is so thin & pigmented. I didn't add top coat but if you did, that would make these two even more similar I think!

I think this is positively perfect for the winter season, almost like a dark skyline. This just goes on perfectly. Love. Although it is definitely the least flashy of the 3 I'm showing you today, I think it is super wearable!

What do you think? Love it or leave it? What do you think of it in comparison to the Deborah Lippman?
