Revlon Espresso nails with Sequins


Today I've got one of the more recent nail looks that I wore just before Thanksgiving.  I wanted to get this one up soon since one of the polishes is, as far as I know, limited edition.

I started out with a coat of ridge filling base coat (as usual), but I forget which one I had handy that night.  Then I did 2 coats of Revlon Top Speed in Espresso.  This is such a gorgeous dark brown and I have no idea why I waited so long to use it.
But in sunlight (coming through the window), Espresso revealed a pretty hidden secret!  It has a pretty micro-shimmer of what looks like a little teal and burgundy (shows up the most on my pinkie):

Then to dress it up more, I added a nice coat of Revlon Sequins onto my ring fingers and my thumbs...I was being a little different for me this time, since I normally just accent the ring fingers.  I really liked the double accents, so I'll probably do that more in the future.

Sequins is a lovely gold glitter polish consisting of both micro-glitter and medium sized hex glitters in a clear base.  This left a fairly smooth finish as well, despite all the glitters.  Love this, and I still can't think of another gold glitter quite like it.  I found this shade in a limited edition display, but the bottle says new shade, so I'm not sure where Revlon is going with it.  If you'd like to see what other polishes were in the display with Sequins, check out my Spotted, Hauled & Swatched post on this collection.

Have you picked up Revlon's Sequins?  Know of any dupes for it?
