Review: Muse by Revlon

Posted on

Muse by Revlon essentially looks like a cross between Marine green (the green used for PT and gear by the Marine Corps) and khaki. I hear that greens are going to be “in” this fall and immediately thought of this color. Not only is it a “fall color” to begin with, it’s also somewhat green. Like all Revlon polishes it is great quality. You only need two coats and they apply smoothly. Add a topcoat for best effect.

Review Post #011

We’ll keep this short and sweet. First review is of Essie’s Wrapped in Rubies. This is a dark, metallic burgundy polish with a touch of gold shimmer. Here’s a close up of the bottle so you can see:

This polish–like all other Essie polishes I’ve reviewed thus far–applies smoothly and looks great in just two coats. I’m not usually a fan of metallic polishes but this one was too gorgeous to pass up.

New Polishes!

Over the past few days I’ve been accumulating random polishes here and there. I found this amazing place called Wegman’s which is basically the best grocery store you’ll ever shop in. It had a cafe in the middle of it and even a bar. Had I not had my son with me I would’ve sat down and had myself a glass of wine before doing my shopping. It was pretty damn awesome, not to mention the selection they had. Like every other section their beauty area was massive and had every basic brand you could want. I’ve not come across a big chain store that carries this much nail polish though. They had the basics and more. I know the Wal-mart and Targets near me don’t have very good selections of Essie or OPI polishes but this place had so many available I didn’t know where to start.

Between Wegman’s and Wal-mart over the past week I’ve accrued the following:

Muse (Revlon)
Sew Psyched (Essie)
Wrapped in Rubies (Essie)
Navigate Her (Essie)
Cute as a Button (Essie)
Spice Romance (Rimmel)
Ocean Side (Sinful Colors)

My favorites out of these polishes are Navigate Her and Muse. I’m a huge fan of soft greens and khaki colors plus I had been ogling Navigate Her for a while now. It seems like a really popular polish and I can see why. Now my collection is getting to be a legitimate size for a nail blogger. I’ve noticed these huge stashes separate serious bloggers and those who use blogging as a hobby. I want to fall under the former category so I’ll keep on building my collection at this pace. I now have almost 80 bottles of polish! I think I started out with under 30 or 40 just a month ago so it’s safe to say I have a hefty addiction to polish at this point. At least it’s a fun addiction!
