Sparkle & Shine: Revlon Nail Art Sun Candy, Nail Art Shiny Matte, Diamond Texture and Graffiti Top Coats

Revlon Nail Art Sun Candy_nail polish duosSomeone said to me yesterday that she wished there were some way of extending the festive cheer of the holidays into depressing January and February. At first she referred to the charming winter-wonderland-scape Tim Horton’s coffee cups that seem to disappear on January 2nd, then to the season’s cheery twinkle lights. Palmer, I give you Revlon Nail Art Sun Candy. Along with Revlon Nail Art Shiny Matte, Revlon Diamond Texture and Revlon Graffiti Top Coats, they’ll make dreary January and February just a little easier to bear.

Revlon Nail Art Sun Candy duos_creamy shadesRevlon Nail Art Sun Candy ($8.95 each at drugstores and mass retailers) are bright solid-colour base coats paired with sparkling and iridescent top coats.

Revlon Nail Art Sun Candy duos_sparkle and shimmer shadesSee how cheery? Like Moon Candy, but with a finer shimmer, Revlon Nail Art Sun Candy comes in 10 shades and lands in stores in January.

Think of all these as a hit of optimism at your fingertips.

Revlon Nail Art Shiny MatteRevlon Nail Art Shiny Matte ($8.95 at drugstores and mass retailers) isn’t as bright and sparkly as Sun Candy, but should still delight in its own way with a combo of — well, shiny and matte finishes.

Revlon Nail Art Shiny Matte_520 Tortoise-Shell_540 Khaki Satin_510 Pinstripe_530 Emerald Suede_500 Leather & LaceFive shades — Revlon Nail Art Shiny Matte in 520 Tortoise-Shell, 540 Khaki Satin, 510 Pinstripe, 530 Emerald Suede and 500 Leather & Lace — will also hit stores in January.

Revlon Diamond Texture 929_Revlon Graffiti Texture 678_Revlon Graffiti Texture 732_Revlon Chameleon 933This Revlon group is slated for shelves in February. They’ll be $5.95 each at the usual retailers. From left: Revlon Diamond Texture, Revlon Graffiti 678 (red and white) and Revlon Graffiti 732 (black and white… looks a lot like the original L’Oréal Paris Confetti Top Coat I showed you here and here, or Maybelline New York Color Show Polka Dots, as seen here) and Revlon Chameleon (duo chrome). I’m double-checking the names of the Graffiti top coats; the press info lists Daring Graffiti and Rebel Graffiti, but the labels on the actual bottles differentiated between the red and black only by number.

Also part of this collection are formerly limited-editions Revlon RichDivine, Elusive (our mani-geek Karen swatched amazing Elusive in this post here) and Seductive.

Back to my conversation with Palmer. I do understand why festive decorations have to vanish after the holidays. By the second week of January, they look tired and tacky. Think the Revlon Nail Art Sun Candy will help? Or maybe someone needs to invent strings of twinkle-light-size mood-regulation bulbs?

I was meaning to buy one of those light boxes you stare into to combat Seasonal Affective Disorder, but maybe I’ll just buy all the Sun Candy colours and stare at them.

Ooh, like your thinking, Kelly! Probably less expensive than a light box. Wait — these are about $9 a pop, and there are 10 shades. How much are S.A.D. lamps?

Geeky I know. But I looked. Apparently light boxes and $100- $250, so nail colours are definitely a better buy. It’s just smart shopping.

Now I want to paint all the berries on my Christmas decorations a different colour since they are all so shimmery.

Stay tuned, Carly — the preview was just a couple of days ago, and Karen has been working on other projects. :-)

Just picked up Pink Dawn & am in love!! It’s right up there with Whimsical in terms of being unique & sooo pretty!

I also picked up the silver Diamond Texture back in December at my local Walmart but you say it isn’t out until February? They must have put them out early bc the Confetti top coats were also on the shelf.

Honeybee, are you in Canada? I’ve only just started to see this stuff pop up in my local (maybe within the last coupla weeks) and every time I walk past it, I get that grabby hands sorta feeling…
