Revlon's Plum Seduction

I am always on the hunt for a cute summer nail color and the other day I stopped by Rexall and picked up Revlon's 917 Plum Seduction. I can only describe it as a very flirtatious and color popping shade. The nail polish has a creme finish to it and is a mix of magenta, fuchsia and purple in a bottle.


(clumsy paint job... but nothing that a shower cannot fix! :p)

I've never been completely gaga in love with Revlon's nail polish formula and this one has not changed my opinion either. The formula is very watery so the first two coats will only leave your nail polish in streaks. The watery formula may be overlooked in pale shimmery shades but for nail polish with a creme finish.... *thumbs down* It took at least three coats for the shade to turn opaque, like in the photo.

I definitely really like this color and looks super cute in photos. The total damage was only really $5.99CAD and lots of patience.... so, has this plum shade seduced you at all?

I have this same exact one! I bought it because it caught my attention lol. Maybe I'm not paying attention to the consistency, but I don't remember it being that bad. If I have to comment, I'd even go to say that I prefer some Revlon polishes over Essie (with the consistency). I know that some of my Essie polishes that I have are very streaky..I'm going to have to pay closer attention the next time I try on the Revlon

I still really like the colour though :P

ehlee, why does the flash photo darker than the no flash photo? ;)

i have to agree with the consistency of revlon polishes being thin and watery, but the the shade looks nice on your hand! patience paid off. hehe. so i guess its not such a waste after all. :)

i think i have a similar color in my collection already so i'm gonna pass on this one. ;)

Hmmm I really like the plum colour but I have to agree with you that the formula isn't something I'm a fan for. I think when I do buy it I buy it on sale at Superstore for $3.50CAD.
