Swatches: Revlon "099 Effervescent Opal"

Hey everyone! I just wanted to show you guys a polish that I wore on my nails a while back. It is a color that I really like but also only use when I feel like I have the patience and time to wear it. The reason why I say that is because this polish is a bit on the sheer side. It took me three coats for it to become opaque on my nails. I do think that this polish is great for those who can't wear polishes to work because with one coat, it will just give your nails a sheer wash of pink. Its very sheer and can only be detected when looked at closely. I love how this polish just looks on both my nails and in the bottle. If you look at the bottle shot, you can see that this polish has an iridescent to it. Its just to pretty! I do have to say though, that on nails, the iridescent isn't that noticeable in some lighting.

As all my mani, I apply Orly Top2Bottom as my base coat and Seche Vite as my top coat for that extra shine. Plus it makes everything dry a bit faster too. The only thing that I don't like about Seche Vite is all the bad chemicals that it contains. Hopefully I will be able to find a similar top coat without all the horrible chemicals that Seche Vite has.

Have you seen Effervescent Opal before?
