Manicure Monday: Revlon Plum Seduction

Starting off the week with another manicure. Since radiant orchid is the it color this year, I've been finding quite a few different options out there to fulfill the trend. Today, I'm happy to share a drugstore option for you in Revlon's Plum Seduction nail enamel ($6.99 each).

This gorgeous polish is a pretty and tastefully bright shade of fuchsia-magenta. I say fuchsia-magenta because in person it has just the slightest bit more purple than a typical fuchsia. It actually reminds me a bit of Zoya Charisma, except this doesn't dry down to a matte finish (it looks similar if you put a shiny top coat on Charisma). 

Given my love for bright pink (and fuchsia) manicures (and lips), it's no surprise I'd be drawn to this shade. But what I'm totally psyched over is the fantastic formula. Revlon's Plum Seduction offers a thin, water-like, consistency with fantastic color pay off. Even though the formula is thin, one coat was totally opaque. I added the second coat because I always do, but also because even though one coat was opaque, it felt very thin, which made me think it would chip easier on its own. I experienced zero streaking and the polish spread easily over my nails. It's pretty much incredibly easy to work with. 

This is my second Revlon nail enamel and both experiences I've had with this brand have been very good, which demonstrates you can get quality and stay on trend without breaking the bank. 

What are some of your favorite radiant orchid nail polish shades from the drugstore?
