My First Half Moon Mani

Happy Friday! Even though it's been a 4 day week, the weekend can never come soon enough! 

My manicure today is a bit of a fail, but I like the idea of it...had I used different polishes I think it would have come out a lot nicer. For the base, I chose Revlon Aloof, from the Edgy Elegance collection. I really like that Revlon is coming out with colors that I like recently, but their formula almost always bubbles up on me. You can probably tell in my pics. Even when I layered NOPI My Lifesaver on top the bubbles came through making it look terrible!

I used round stickers to make the half moon, but probably should have moved them down a little further.

Thinking another coat of polish would maybe fix the bubbles, I added Revlon Whimsical on top. I think I should have just given up at this point. haha Whimsical is another one I wanted to love but the glitter is SO sparse. I ended up doing about 2 coats of this before bed, and by the time I woke up it was a wrinkled, bubbled mess! Do any of you know if Deborah Lippmann's Glitter in the Air is more dense in glitter with one coat?

So that's my nail fail for ya today! ;) What are your experiences with Revlon polishes?
Pin It!


  1. well to be your first half moon, it didn't came out really bad!! Also my first halfmoon mani looked really similar to yours ;)

  2. I still have yet to do a half moon mani !! i do like how they look.. maybe ill do it next wk.. thanks for inspiring next wks nail design !

  3. Whimsical bubbles like crazy on me.. I want to love it so much but I can't. Sigh.

  4. cute combo!
    I've never experienced bubbles with Revlon polishes.

  5. i like the colors together:] i've never had a revlon bubble on me
    & I've read Glitter in the Air is actually less dense than this

    1. I think I heard the same thing - though only have read of a few that even got their hands on Revlon Whimsical who also have GITA. I really love the way GITA goes on - esp since it's a topper - makes it easier to not have a thick mess in the end...also if necessary, very easy to move the glitter parts around in GITA if you want/need to.

  6. I cannot see any bubbles, and it looks like a mint green and white gradient! Pretty cool!!

  7. They are okay, but definitely not your best work! I love the Revlon colors!

  8. Yea..you called it. Move the stickers now further and have skipped Whimsical. Lucky you to have found Whimsical however. I think if I run into it, I will grab a bottle despite I have at least 1 if not 2 of GITA. I use it a lot and would be nice not to have to pay the Deb Lip price again - but I might be really critical on the Revlon formulation having become use to the Deb Lipp one.

  9. I LOVE THIS LOOK! i didnt know revlon had something so similar to glitter in the air, or else i wouldnt have spent so much on glitter in the air!
