Revlon Modern Grace and Deborah Lippmann Glitter in the Air

I had seen Modern Grace just once in the wild and I didn't pick it up. I had regretted it ever since, and while lamenting on the NB, the lovely Noelie offered to buy me on she had seen at her local Riteaid! Ahhh what a sweetheart! :) Thank you, Noelie!!

I believe this was in a limited edition Top Speed display with some other summery shades. The formula on this polish is amazing It is a 1 coater!

Revlon Modern Grace - 1 coat!


Here are some comparisons to other purpleish-periwinkle polishes in my stash. I had a sneaking suspicion that this may be dupish to Orly Cashmere Cardigan, but I do not own that polish! I asked on NB, and a couple girls posted bottle pic comparisons for me. If they aren't dupes, then they are insanely close.

Revlon Modern Grace vs. OPI Done Out in Deco and Planks a Lot


For my NOTD, I wore 1 coat of Revlon Modern Grace and topped it with 2 coats of Deborah Lippmann Glitter in the Air. The light blue base of GitA lightened up Revlon Modern Grace. I absolutely love the result!! I usually don't wear glitter polishes to work, but screw that :D!! I used Barielle Manicure Extender and SV as my topcoat to give it extra shine. I have a tiny bit of shrinkage, but I hardly ever wrap my tips... out of laziness.





By the way, I've heard that Nordies is having a B2G1 sale on Deborah Lippmanns and Butter London this Saturday and Sunday, in store only. You may want to call your counter to confirm, though! Luckily, there are not 3 DLs or 3 BLs that I am lemming, so I will be saving my pretty pennies. But if you have been waffling on getting anything from these two brands, this weekend would be a good time to take the plunge!

DBF's mom, aunt, and youngest brother are coming to visit this weekend, so this will probably be my last post until the weekend is over. So, enjoy your weekend! :)

  14. I had to copy this look!   Though I think my base is a periwinkle color....but now the more I look at it, it looks purple....Well whatever color it is, I did it based of this look.  I LOVE GITA!!  I need a back up bottle!

  19. Haha! It's very cutesy. I'm surprised I lemmed GitA so hard, but I'm glad I've found a way to use it more often than I thought!

    ReplyDelete

  24. Luxury items :'( I only buy these expensive brands on sale/discount. I bought this using my beautybar.com gift certificate that I bought from Hautelook. It ended up being only $11-12! I don't think I could shell out $18 for it!!

  25. Yay, cakes and barbies for all! :)

  29. This combo is just perfect! I was looking for some inspiration for GITA and this is exactly what I needed. Thank you so much for the inspiration!

  30. I just found this today at Walgreens! It was in a display of other Revlons, and it definitely didn't look like it belonged! What's weird, is that the display was in the hair color aisle, on the top shelf (like they were hiding it, or just storing it there?). With the Register Rewards and the $1 off coupon, I got this for free!
