review - essie trophy wife & revlon whimsical

i'm not usually a blue polish kind of girl.  idk why, but i never feel like i can pull it off unless it's a blue-green.  i saw a youtuber talking about essie's trophy wife and thought i'd check it out.  that same day i found revlon's whimsical.

essie's trophy wife is a frosty deep teal that pulls a bit more blue i think than teal actually.  not only is it a frost polish but it shimmers like it might have some kind of super micro glitter.  it reminds me of the ocean when the light hits hit. soooo lovely.

revlon's whimsical is a light blue-gray with small and chunky blue and pink glitter.  i would guess w/ 2-3 coats you could have it opaque on the nails.  but i wanted to try it as a top coat.

so for this look i applied 1 coat of nail magic nail hardener and 1 coat of china glaze strong adhesion for my base.  i followed that with two coats of essie's trophy wife.  the polish was a great consistency and applied beautifully!  then on my ring fingers i applied 1 coat of revlon's whimsical.  i wanted some of essie's trophy wife color to pull through so that's why i only used 1 coat.  i followed that up w/ seche vite for my top coat.  i wore it for 3 days before i noticed chipping.  i actually was so busy that it stayed on my nails for 5 days, which by then it looked pretty rough.

my verdict:
essie's trophy wife - A
revlon's whimsical - A
