Revlon - Royal Cloak

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!

For Twinsie Tuesday, we have to share our favorite polish.  This was hard because I don't have just one favorite polish, I have FAVORITES, lol.  I didn't want to post a polish I've already shared because that wouldn't be any fun for those of you who read regularly and have seen it before.  So I decided to choose a favorite I hadn't tried before.

Revlon Royal Cloak is a polish I was lemming for a really, really long time.  Every time I went to the drug store, I would search high and low for it.  I held on to very little hope that I would ever get my hands on it.  Then  one day I was in Duane Reade looking around and there it was, far away from all the other Revlons, all lonely with eyes pleading for me to notice and take it home.  I seriously did a happy dance in the store.  I might have even yelped a little bit, lol!!  Of course, I found two others afterward, go figure.  I was able to share the love with fellow nail polish lovers ;0).

Royal Cloak is a gorgeous Royal Purple with glass flecks in it.  The formula was pretty good.  It was opaque in two coats, but I noticed the slightest bit of patchiness on a few nails, so I decided to do a third coat.  I used Essie All in One Base, three coats of Royal Cloak, and Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

Based on what I've read, this was a limited edition polish and from personal experience, it's very difficult to find.  So I hope I don't create lemmings for you guys and have you going crazy like I did.

Do you have Royal Cloak?  What is your favorite nail polish?

  16. I really love this polish! I do think it's kind of funny that they named one of their colors Royal and another Royal Cloak. Come on Revlon, be creative!
