Revlon Chroma Chameleon Nail Enamel – Gold, Rose Gold, Pink Quartz

Revlon Chroma Chameleon Nail Enamel – Gold, Rose Gold, Pink Quartz

My local CVS finally put out the Limited Edition Revlon Chroma Chameleon display today. I first read about the duochrome nail collection a month ago but this was the first time I’d seen the nail polishes in person. I purchased three colors — Gold, Rose Gold, and Pink Quartz — for $8.49 each.

I had originally planned on getting two polishes — Pink Quartz and the Chanel Peridot dupe — but I couldn’t remember which of the Revlon polishes was supposed to be the dupe. In the bottles, the Chroma Chameleon nail polishes in Gold and Rose Gold look quite similar so I ended up getting both along with Pink Quartz.

On the nails the differences between Gold and Rose Gold are very apparent.

  • Gold shifts from gold to green, kind of like a beetle’s exoskeleton. I’m sure this is the supposed Peridot dupe.
  • Rose Gold was rather disappointing. All I get is a subtle shift from gold to bronze. I don’t really get any green, maybe a slight olive, but nothing as obvious as with Gold. I suspect that Rose Gold is one of those colors that’ll look a whole lot better layered over a darker nail polish.
  • Pink Quartz was the least duochrome-y on its own. It’s a pretty color but on my nail it’s basically a metallic pink. This is another nail polish that would probably benefit from being layered over a darker color.

I didn’t have any issues with the formula. It’s on the thinner side but I didn’t run into any problems with streaking and it spread pretty evenly on the nail. Two coats were sufficient but I used three in the swatches below. No base or top coat.

  1. I picked up the Aquamarine Revlon Chroma Chameleon nail enamel, and the colour is fantastic (the base blue reminds me a lot of Sephora by OPI’s Mermaid to Order) but I found it really THIN.
    I have two coats on right now, and it’s still very transparent – I think I’ll need 4 coats to get a decent opacity and not just think that the pink ‘shift’ of the duochrome is my nail beds under the colour…
    I did wear two coats over top of Mermaid to Order, and liked that – I think I’ll try another coloured base under this next time I have bare nails and see if a dark base makes the shift of colour pop more.
    I got it shortly after the similarly duochrome Sephora X in Deranged (a pink-purple, and I would say it is less streaky, and lower in price (though also a smaller bottle).

    • Have you tried Gold on a black coat? I’m sure it would look more like Peridot. I mean, it does work perfecto with the OPI dope.
