REVLON: I'm Electro

Revlon I'm Electro

Come on ya'll gather 'round, gather 'round. It's time for story time!

Once upon a time Lacey went out to a Mexican restaurant for her birthday dinner with a few frenz. She may or may not of drank a few too many margaritas, because they're awesome, and found a 24/7 Walgreens on the way back to the car. After cursing their lack of the newest Sinful Colors collections she happened upon a brand new, sparkly, untouched Revlon Electric Chrome Collection inspired by the newest Spider-Man movie. A little out of it, she oohed and ahhed over the magical sparkle of these polishes she quickly grabbed the 2 blue polishes and was happy as a clam. While slightly not all there, she knew she didn't want to pay $7 for each polish, and there was no sale - she (probably slurring) asked a poor sales associate - and had to make a decision between Super-Powered and I'm Electro. She turned to her trusty, right in the head, friend asking specifically "WHICH ONE IS MORE UNIQUE?!" Thus, Lacey of Lace & Lacquers came home with I'm Electro and is swatching it for you today.

Can I just say I have a friend who has an awesome eye for polish? LOL After coming home and Googling swatches trying to determine if I was going to keep this polish o'mine, I discovered she picked the most unique and impressive in the collection. I'm Electro is a shimmery light aqua blue chrome that shifts to purple. I have a good amount of duochrome polishes and I don't have something like this. The most similar would be Barielle Jillian's Jammin', but that is more of a brighter aqua.

I did 2 coats of I'm Electro alone, plus 1 coat over black - as you can see above. I was shocked that I could get away with 2 coats! I was planning for at least 3 coats for full coverage, so 2 made me happy that it wasn't super sheer. As you can see there is a slight difference when layering it over black. The black makes the aqua pop just a little bit more. I prefer layering it on its own because there seems to be a bit more contrast between the color shift. Does that make sense? LOL. I would wait between coats if layering, otherwise no complaints here!

I'm totally in love with the bottle, that spiderweb! I might have to pick up the others IF AND WHEN THEY'RE ON SALE because Revlon is one of my favorite drugstore brands.

  1. Totally agree, margaritas are awesome, and so is this polish.
    I got the other blue and the hot pink the first times saw this display (in Meijer), bc that was all that was left! I finally spotted again at Walgreens and got this one. Am wondering now if I need the warm colors even though I prefer cool colors.
    Also bought the blue lip gloss, which doesn't look blue on the lips, it's sparkly ish.

    I may just really like the web design.
    I did manage to break the bottom off the bottle of the other blue. The polish is still intact. I'm talented like that. Just managed to hit wrong with another bottle in the bag when the bag slipped off my desk. Ah well, no spilled polish. :)

    1. LOL that's how I'm feeling. Someone messaged me and offered to send me 2 of the warm colors, I can't resist! I need to find that display again though for sure.

      That's a bummer it's not blue! Is it pretty though?

  2. This SO pretty! Revlon needs to have a sale so I can get my hands on these for a less than full price. I need this one and a couple others!
