Welcomes to Tuesday - Cheap Polish Tuesday to be exact - we're in the middle of Rainbow Honey FAB Summer Set feature week but that's OK, WE'LL DO IT LIVE! We're doing it anyway: exploring cheap polishes found for regular price or on sale for $5 or less! Today I've got Revlon Trendy, from the Bubblegum Days Urban Nights spring collection for this year! I found this at Wal-Mart for approximately $3-$4. (Sometimes I can't remember, but it's in that range.)
Revlon Trendy is a teal creme. Originally I picked this up because I am hunting for the perfect DAVIDsTEA teal but this one is not up to snuff! I'll show you my findings in another post, another day. Although I have a severe dislike for Revlon formulas, Trendy ain't so bad - it applied smoothly and covered fully within two coats! My swatch is two coats, with no top coat:
So back to the reason why I bought this - compared to the DAVIDsTEA teal, this is the slightest tad too blue and a little dark. The hunt continues! If you don't own a teal creme and are on a budget, I would say that Revlon Trendy is pretty decent! It wasn't the usual sticky, long drying formula that I am used to from Revlon. Colour me happy.
And of course, what better way to spice up some cheap polish than with Rainbow Honey? Last time I did it with Sally Hansen with Soul Gem - so here's Revlon Trendy with Rainbow Honey Costa Del Sol, which is sold as a part of the FAB Summer Set.
Yeah buddy, doesn't that look gorgeous? I love it.
Just to kick it up a notch even more, here it is using Revlon Matte Top Coat, just keeping in the theme of Cheap Polish Tuesday!
I am absolutely loving the look of this in matte! All the gold flakies really come into the spotlight, all for a very affordable look. Revlon Trendy is a definite hit for me and is an awesome base colour for glitter toppers.
