I went to a different CVS store today in the hopes of finding Revlon Lip Butters on clearance. None were to be found. Instead, I spotted the N.Y.C. Color Burst display of new $0.99 Long Wearing Nail Enamel shades. The two colors that immediately jumped out at me, and the ones I ended up buying, were Skyline Blue and Rock the Party!
Skyline Blue is a shimmery, pale blue.
In the bottle, Rock the Party! is a duochrome that’s a silvery, purplish, green-tinged gray mix that changes depending on how the light hits it. It’s a hard color to describe and an even harder color to photograph. I think Wet n Wild has a similar shade called Gray’s Anatomy that’s supposed to be a dupe of Deborah Lippmann Wicked Game. Unfortunately, I don’t own Gray’s Anatomy so I don’t know how Rock the Party! compares.
ETA: Here’s a quick swatch of Rock the Party on a single finger. As you can see, it’s a sheer grayish purple with a pinky-purple duochrome and the barest tinge of green. This is three coats and visible nail line is apparent. Meh. It reminds me of the color my nail turned the time I accidentally slammed my finger in the door (minus the shimmery pink flash :P).
