Revlon Gold Get 'Em

There are numerous polishes in my stash that I've had for at least a year or two but have yet to actually wear them. Today's post is going to highlight one of those neglected polishes. It's Revlon Gold Get 'Em, one that I got in the beginning of my newly found interest in polish.

Gold Get 'Em is a pale, shimmery gold. It actually took some time for me to warm up to it. At first I liked it more in the bottle than on me. I may not be in love with it now, but I do like it. It has pretty shimmer that is gorgeous in sunlight. I'm thinking it would probably look better layered over other polishes.

The formula wasn't bad, but it was runny. Application was still somewhat easy. The sheerness bugged me, as it still wasn't totally opaque at three coats. I wasn't very patient between coats, so the drying time wasn't great.

Overall, Gold Get 'Em is pretty but I think it would be better served layered over golds and darker polishes. I'll have to try that next time when I decide to wear it.

Icing Hey Sailor Boy

I feel so bad for neglecting my blog. I've been on an unexpected hiatus because of personal issues but things are better now. I do miss blogging. For my first post back I have Icing Hey Sailor Boy to show you.

Hey Sailor Boy consists of blue and green hexes and small blue glitter in a dark blue base. It looks similar to the popular Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe, but they're not exact dupes of each other. HSB seems to be more dense and not as dark.

Instead of layering it, I wear it alone. This is three coats. All of them dried fairly fast. It was really easy to work with, not too thin or thick. Clean up was the hardest part because of all of the glitter.

I love Hey Sailor Boy. I really want Across the Universe, but this one is satisfying my lemming for now. If you have an Icing store near you, I definitely recommend it.
