Happy Memorial Day! Today I am showing you a pretty dark cobalt blue that I recently purchased at CVS. Here’s a little story of how I ended up purchasing Royal. So I was at CVS and noticed the Wet n’ Wild Mermaid’s Cove collection.. a full display! So I purchased Sea Witch, Diving for Pearls and Atlantis. With this purchase I got $5 extra bucks. Thennnn I saw a display of Revlon Top Speed polishes, with a little sticker thing saying, $4.99 with $4 extra bucks back… soooo I used my $5 extra bucks to buy this, and then got $4 EB back!!!! Whaaat a deal!
My feelings on Royal are mixed.. I absolutely love the bottle color. It is a deep yet bright cobalt blue, and the name totally fits it, it’s royal looking. However I’m not the biggest fan of the formula. It took three coats to become fully opaque and it was almost jelly-ish.
Royal is unlike anything else I own, so the collector in me is glad that I made this purchase, but let’s just say this didn’t last too long on me. I removed it about two hours later.:D
What are your thoughts on Royal? I loved the bottle color, but it just didn’t come through for me on the nail. Boo!
Enjoy your Memorial Day!!!
