This is going to be a super-quick post (no…really) as apparently this party-girl is still going despite the fact that technically Christmas is over. Over the past week I’ve been burning the candle at both ends every single night except Christmas night…funny, that. Anywho, while I wait for my drive to take me to my next party (despite the fact that I work tomorrow, as I did today…ugh), I figured I would post quick pics of a great silver polish I found on the cheap – $2.99CAD on sale at Lawtons drugstore. Woot! I am NOT a fan of silver in most forms of cosmetics (on my skintone), but this somehow works.
Behold Revlon’s Top Speed Nail Enamel in Sterling:
It’s kinda of blinding, no? Quite eye-catching without being gaudy, and even though it’s more of a blue-based silver than I normally go for, I think it looks quite nice on me. Maybe my issue is that I’ve been choosing the wrong silver tones all this time! I’m finding more and more that shades I had once written off actually aren’t so bad. I’m starting to think that for some colors, wearing clashing tones (as in, if your skin leans warm, wear cooler shades and vice versa), actually looks better. The verdict is still out on whether or not my skin is cool or warm (some days I suspect I am just plain neutral) – I always thought I was a warmer skintone, but there are a lot of indications that point to that assumption being incorrect. I tend to favor silver jewelry over gold, for example. In any case…I’m starting to ramble and not make sense. THIS is what happens when you write a post under an uber-short timeframe!
To the point. This is a great silver that looks good on me (I think? Thoughts?) and it applied very easily without any trouble (this is two coats). I had previously forgone any more Revlon polishes but I think the fast-dry versions are much better than their regular counterparts. And perhaps the new Revlon polishes are just fine. Ahh, rambling again! All I want to say is – if you see this around, give it a look. Even at full price, which is something like $6CAD, it’s worth a shot and a great shade to wear for the holidays/New Years Eve!
Do you wear shades that ‘clash’ with your skintone? Do you know if you’re warm or cool? What was the determining factor?
