Revlon - Grape Fizz

Revlon - Grape Fizz
3 coats

Grape Fizz has blue and purple glass flecks in a sheer scented purple jelly base. I don't think this one will build up to bottle colour. If it's not even close after 3 coats I give up. It looks more opaque on my ring and pinky finger but that's just because of the angle they are on. Look how pretty it is in the bottle! It's such a shame. This smells just like the cherry flavoured soft chew lollies from the Natural Confectionery Company. I didn't smell grape at all.  

I decided to layer this over my favourite purple, Ulta3 - Orchid:

Revlon - Grape Fizz
2 coats over Ulta3 - Orchid

Now this is more like it! It looks just like the bottle colour. If you have both Grape Fizz and Orchid try this layering combo.

  1. oooh that looks great over Orchid. One of these days I must find a bottle of Orchid.
    I just got this Revlon yesterday but I've only tried it over black so far. The smell is really quite surprising, much stronger than I expected.

  2. That's gorgeous! The layering closeup reminds me quite a bit of GOSH Gasoline, which is my all time favourite purple. :)

  5. Bah! Another polish to ad to my list. I just picks up Not So Blueberry today, because Walgreens had Revlons on buy one, get one 50% off, but I hadn't yet come across any reason to know I needed this one, so I picked up Revlon Royal. Grape Fizz looks fantastic layered like you have it.

    1. I only buy Revlon when it's on sale. They are so over priced here, $14each!

  7. I kinda like it on its own, a little more subtle but with a nice sparkle! Amazing how it pops with Orchid as the base.. very nice. Thanks

    1. I'm one of those opaque or nothing people. If my nails weren't so stained I would wear more sheer polishes. :)
