Swatches: New Revlon Nail Enamels in Heavenly and Girly

Of all the pretty new polishes in the Bubble Gum Days Urban Nights Collection, these were the two that I wanted the very most. I finally found the display at my local Rite Aid yesterday, and I snagged the last remaining bottles of Heavenly and Girly, so let's take a look at some swatches:

 Revlon Nail Enamel in Heavenly and Girly
(retail: $4.99 each, 0.5 oz)


Keep reading for lots of swatches...

Let's start with Heavenly:


As I mentioned in my previous post, Revlon Heavenly is a dupe for Deborah Lippmann Stairway to Heaven. What's very unique about this polish is that I think it's the first time we've seen a combination of square and hexagonal iridescent glitter at the drugstore.  

Here's one layer of Heavenly over a black creme polish (plus top coat):






This polish flowed beautifully onto the nail with no need to fish for glitter or fuss with stragetic glitter placement. You can basically swipe it on and go and it only required one coat for what you see above. LOVE.

Now for Girly:


At first glance, you'll probably think that this milky glitter is full of purple and pink glitter and nothing else. BUT, when you view it at different angles and lighting, you'll notice that the small hex glitter actually takes on more of a holographic effect:


See the little flashes of green, red and teal in there? Based on the swatches I've seen of Nails Inc. Topping Lane, I would say that Revlon Girly is Topping Lane on steroids. It's a crazy glitter party in a luscious, milky, pinky-lilac base.

Three coats of Girly plus top coat:






As with most of the milky glitters I own, the base color of Girly is very sheer, so you'll need to apply three coats to get it to the level of opacity you see above. Of course, if you don't want this much glitter on your nails, you can start with a coat of plain pink or lavender creme polish, and then just apply one or two coats of Girly on top. 

Also, in addition to this polish being sheer, it's a bit watery. This means that you'll have to be strategic with glitter placement and I found myself having to push the glitter around a bit with the brush to get it where I wanted it on my nail. The good thing is that you don't have to fish for the glitter to get it on your brush--every time I pulled the brush out the bottle I had plenty of glitter already there. No fishing required.

I absolutely LOVE both of these polishes and highly recommend them to my fellow glitter fanatics out there. Since both of these polishes have numbers assigned to them (Heavenly is 770 and Girly is 260) I believe that means they'll be part of the permanent core collection. So no need to go crazy trying to find them since they'll probably make their way to you by January or so. But if you need them now, I've heard from readers who have spotted this collection at Kmart and Rite Aid (no sightings at Walgreens or CVS yet, to my knowledge).

Do you own any polishes from the Bubble Gum Days Urban Nights Collection yet? Thoughts?

  7. The ones I bought have "new product" sticks (rather than "limited edition" stickers), so I'm pretty sure they are peremanent, yay! I am loving Heavenly too, esp in a jelly sandwich (and G, since you love jelly sandwiches, I bet you would love it too - so pretty and delicate!)

  17. Today I got 2 polishes at Urban Outfitters, and one looks just like Heavenly. The other is even more exciting - it's a dupe of Deborah Lippmann Ray of Light, and from swatches of the DL I've seen, it looks like a great dupe. So gorgeous. You should definitely check out urban outfitters sometime, as they've got a number of DL dupes at the moment.

  19. I apologize if this is a double post. Can't tell if mine went through or not.

    I just want to say that Girly was ON CLEARANCE at my local rite aid in Cortland, NY. 75% off! I almost got it, but opted for Midnight instead.

    And all CQ Petites were on clearance too ($0.75!!!).

  27. Ladies, just an FYI if you are still looking for this display. I went to a Rite Aid today 12/19 on the off chance of finding these and looked all over the beauty aisles and did not find it. However, as I was walking through the store to see what I could see...there it was in the middle of random aisle in the middle of store! Untouched! Along with a new display of Revlon polishes...the ones that have two small polishes that are connected... anyway look all around the store if you are still on the hunt! You never know what you may find. I did buy Girly and Heaven with the buy one get on 50% off. I swatched Girly on one hand and think it is really bringing out the redness in my skin tone. On a related note since I am compelled to buy every pastel blue that I see, bought Blue Lagoon from the regular Revlon section and even though there was nothing indicating a clearance sale, it rang up for $1.37
