Hey, guys! Are you ready for the weekend? I am! And are you ready for warmer weather to finally arrive? I definitely am! Well, for those of you who are still stuck in the throes of winter's mischief (like me), I think I may have a little pick-me-up to help serve as a mini-escape until higher temperatures prevail. It's a revved up lacquer with quite the enticing moniker. So if you have a moment, I'd like to show you a colorful gem from Revlon called Tropical Temptation.
Tropical Temptation is a sunny coral that doesn't lean too pink nor too orange, but is a perfect balance of both. Revlon polishes have a slightly thinner formula than most, but I find them to be nicely pigmented with an extra dose of high-shine. I applied three coats to achieve ample opacity, however, was still left with narrow ribbons of sheerness on my nails due to some streakiness experienced during the second coat. I wouldn't call the streaking severe, but certainly worth noting. No bubbling, though. And the polish did last on my busy hands for a good four and a half days before showing signs of wear and slight chipping on my tips.

Overall, I really like this nail polish. The color is right up my alley, it dries quickly and has good staying power. I'm figuring I may have to up the layering to four coats for a more even-looking and solid result - a minor tradeoff considering the color payoff and how pretty a polish it is.
So, there you have it. A graphic reminder of the warmer weather that's soon to come, conveniently published on the tips of your fingers. And if you found Temptation to be the least bit tempting then I think you owe it to yourself to go check it out.
Revlon Tropical Temptation is available at Target, WalMart and most drugstores, and retails for around $6.
