China Glaze Anchors Away & Revlon Swatches

Since a lot of you showed interest in seeing my stash I will be showing it soon.  And since both winners of my giveaways received their prizes- I will be doing a mini giveaway soon.
Today I want to show you two more swatches from the China Glaze Anchors Away collection.
Knotty and Below Deck.
I picked up both of these recently at a Beauty Supply. I saw they had the colors I was missing from the collection- but only these ones caught my eye.

This is 3 coats of Knotty.

Knotty is a light brown polish with iridescent glitter.

It's unique to my collection but I'm not sure if I like it or not.

I wonder how this would look layered..

This is 1 coat of Below Deck.

Below Deck is a purple toned taupe creme. YUM.

This polish is pretty close in color to China Glaze Channelesque but I believe is not quite a dupe.

This polish is perfect. One coat and such a great color.

Now, on to some Revlons I've recently bought. I'm not usually a fan of Revlon.
Cloud, Perplex, Emerald City, and Royal.

This is 2 coats of Cloud.

Cloud is a light, almost white, lavender creme. I LOVE this polish.

It reminds me of Sally Hansen Lavender Cloud but a bit more purple.

I didn't have any problems with application.

This is 1 coat of Perplex.

Perplex is a grey-taupe polish with purple shimmer. It's supposed to be a dupe for Chanel Paradoxal. I can't say for sure, because I only own the Revlon.

I love this color. I love the complexity of the grey with the purple shimmer. 

It was very opaque and creamy. 

This is 1 thick coat of Emerald City.

This is my favorite Revlon. It is a suede polish. :) 

It's an emerald green polish with a ton of shimmer.

Look how amazing! This is such a drugstore gem. *Hugs polish*

This is 1 coat of Royal.

Royal is a purple blue that dried like a neon but has a jelly formula.

My camera had a panic attack while trying to capture this color. It's more purple in real life.

It looks like the night sky. Some people have commented on the scent of this polish. It has a lightly skunky smell to it.

These Revlons, I instantly fell in love with. I was ready to write off this brand completely- but I think I might just come back for more.

  3. Those Revlons are soo pretty! I know there's a lot of hype around the perplex/paradox polishes, but I like the other ones you swatched better! Especially the green with all that glitter :)

  4. Hmm, if Below Deck is not a dupe of Channelesque I guess it's a good thing I added it to my latest TD order. Your entry reminds me I need to try some of the Top Speeds I bought during the Walgreens Jingle Cash frenzy at the end of last year.
