I don’t actually make it into drugstores often enough to scoop up the latest and greatest drugstore polish offerings (i.e. where art thou Maybelline Cool Couture?!?!?!). When I do, it’s purely by happenstance. As was the case with the Revlon Edgy Elegance collection. And thank goodness, because a girl can’t have too many shoes or too many foil polishes.
I actually missed two of this collection, Catty and Aloof. But as they were gold tints, I’m not that upset as I only have ten zillion gold foils (slight exaggeration… but not by much). For the most part, this collection is a standard foil offering with pastel colors. The foil consistency was more gritty than I’m used to. It was as if the silver foil particles weren’t ground up to an even fineness. It was disconcerting at first, but top coat laid to rest any bumpy particles.
Innocent is a peachy color that had it not been a foil, could have easily turned into a BABB (BandAid But Better) color. Girly was a light lilac that bordered on silver. I don’t think I actually have a foil this color. Punk was a bright, light green. This is another color I don’t think I have. Princess probably contained the most silver making it look a tad shinier than the rest of the colors. Downtown looks like a blue at first until it’s lined up against Princess and then you realize it has a teal influence. Fierce is probably my favorite. Its vibrant pigmentation is definitely not a pastel, making it stand out in this collection.
All of the colors were applied in two easy coats as is typical for most foils. Consistency was a tad thick, but very manageable. The only thing that made me pause was the grittiness. But a good layer of top coat will take care of that.
