Revlon - Velvet Rope




Hello dears.

Today I have for you a gorgeous red jelly polish. This is Velvet Rope from Revlon's newest collection. (Photos are clickable to enlarge.)


How pretty is this? I know red is boring, but I've been on the hunt for MY perfect red, and I think I finally found it. I really had my eye on Chanel's Pirate, but I have a really hard time spending $26 on a polish! I can't do a swatch comparison, but I'd say this is pretty dern close. And this only cost me 5 or 6 bucks. :)


My macro shot for you. This is with a base coat, 2 coats of Velvet Rope, and a top coat of Seche Vite. It applies neatly, doesn't flood the cuticle area, self-corrects. I have no complaints. 


And this is a picture with the flash on. You can tell it looks much lighter in this shot. The true color is closer to the photo above without the flash. It is a very deep, blood red. Perdy. :-P

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed yourself.

  2. I think it has a lot to do with the nail polish I used. It was extremely, super duper glossy prior to the top coat. I think adding the SV made it even better. My other polishes don't always turn out this glossy. :-/
