Revlon Bubble Gum Days / Urban Nights Swatches & Review

Revlon Bubble Gum Days Urban Nights

Revlon Bubble Gum Days/Urban Nights is a new collection for spring. One side features lighter feminine shades, and the other side has edgier deeper shades.

I’m not sure how many in total this collection holds because every display I have seen has been half ravaged. But I picked up the only ones that really appealed to me from both sides.

Let’s DO THIS and happy Saturday! :D

Revlon Bubble Gum Days Urban Nights 2
Girly, Enchanting, Eclectic, Urban, Iconic

Revlon Girly
Girly

Girly is definitely aptly named! It has a bubblegum pink base and contains pink, blue, lavender and fuchsia hexagonal glitter in various sizes. Wanna see it super up close & personal? Check it here.

Surprisingly this one wasn’t TOO much of a pain to apply. I hated it with the first two coats because the base is pretty watery, and it seemed fairly uneven. But by the third coat the glitter was nicely dispersed, and the base covered my nail completely. I didn’t have to “place” any of the glitter other than pushing back a couple pieces that wanted to stick off my nail tip. Definitely wait a few minutes in-between each coat to save yourself a headache! I think this is a really cute and unique glitter all in all, and I am rather impressed.

Revlon Enchanting
Enchanting

Enchanting is a saturated and bright lavender with hidden pink shimmer. Man oh man do I love this color, but not until I was three thin coats in. In the bottle it looks to be an ordinary lavender creme, but the shimmer is there, and it winds up being a really feminine and soft shade, yet still vivid. Love it.

Revlon Eclectic
Eclectic

Eclectic is a soft mint/jade creme. Oh how I wanted to love this one, but the formula just wasn’t there. This is a very sheer and watery formula, and even after three coats you can see patchy areas all over. I nearly did four coats for the swatch but then thought, no way would I ever do that in real life, so I won’t here either! That’s a pet peeve of mine, when I know a polish doesn’t cover the way a “normal” person would wear it (2-3 coats) but the swatch seems to look perfect. Sorry just a rant…Pretty shade, bad formula.

Revlon Urban
Urban

Urban is a deep cobalt blue creme. This one is interesting because the blue is rather different from most dark blue cremes. It’s a softer blue, nearly violet but not quite. It definitely doesn’t look black ever, but it’s brighter in certain lighting. I REALLY like this one, and I don’t normally think much of deep blue cremes. Great formula, this practically covered in one coat but I used two.

Revlon Iconic
Iconic

Iconic is a very dark charcoal grey. It’s very cool-toned and almost looks like a deep chalkboard green creme under certain lighting. It’s super dark, but again doesn’t look harsh like black does. I love this one also, though it may not be unique. Excellent formula this also was almost one coat but I used two.

Overall: I truly loved all of these except Eclectic. I wish it had a better formula because it could have been a great shade. Oh well you can’t win then all! I think the most unique ones are Girly (probably the fan fav) and Enchanting.

Availability: CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, etc.

Pricing: I got them on sale at Walgreens for $4.99 but they run anywhere from that on up.

Which of these do you want or already own?

    I’ll probably get Girly! I like it!
    Ecletic looks very similar to Ciaté’s Pepperminty which I’m wearing today ;)

    Girly reminds me of a Deborah Lippmann polish. :)

      As well as that OPI color it almost seems to be similar to Zoya Noot!

  • January 26, 2013

    Oh no! I bought Eclectric the other day but haven’t tried it yet. Now I’m super bummed out. May have to try returning that now.

    I have Girly, but I seem to be in the minority because I really don’t care for it at all. I really like Enchanting.

  • January 26, 2013

    Wow, Enchanting is so much prettier on the nail than in the bottle! That’s too bad about Eclectic, it would have been a nice color. It looks similar to Avon’s Sea Breeze, which I got from my sister at Christmas but haven’t tried yet.

    Enchanting reminds me of something… but I can’t think of what. Happy Saturday! =D

    Ah, I almost got Eclectic last night; now I’m glad I didn’t. On two previous occasions I picked up Girly, Enchanted and Iconic and I really wanted Urban, so I guess this is a pretty good collection! I was really pleased when I got Enchanted home and noticed the shimmer because I really shouldn’t have been buying a creme that shade (too many dupes in my stash). The shimmer justified my hoarding, hahaha!

  • January 26, 2013

    Nail polish is all new to me.. since I don’t have any blue in my drawer, Urban would be my pick. I love the color!

    Iconic looks to be a close dupe of OPI Nein, nein, nein…ok, fine.
    I’m not a pink person, but I have Girly and I cannot get enough of it! It is just so pleasing to look at!

    I picked up Girly, Urban, and Heavenly from this collection so far and am really loving all of them! I got Urban because of the image on the display – it looks so vampy yet vibrant on her nails and I felt like what I saw in the bottle was representative of what I saw in the image. It really is a great shade! Loving Girly in all it’s pink and purple goodness of course! :D ITA that it’s the fan fave of this collection. *guilty as charged, lol!* I also got Heavenly – super pretty for layering and there are even some square shaped glitters in it! :D

    I was tempted by Enchanting but then I thought, “I have sooooooooo many lavender polishes and I am always buying soooooooooo many more lavender polishes…better not!” But after seeing your swatch I’m kinda wishing I got it now, lol! It’s so vivid and saturated, plus that shimmer is lovely! <3 Hopefully I can find it in a non-ravaged display!

  • January 26, 2013

    I just picked up Girly and Heavenly and I love them both! I didn’t have any Revlon polishes before, so I’m glad I got those two.

  • January 26, 2013

    I’m bummed about Enchanting and Eclectic. I could work around the formula, but it’s a real pain, especially with Revlon polishes. :/

    I love Girly, it’s so neat to see a cute multi-color hexagonal glitter polish with a base that’s actually colored! So unique and pretty, it’s definitely going to be a go-to for spring.

  • January 26, 2013

    Girly and Urban are my favorites of your picks! I really like the glitter and the deep blue of Urban looks like it’d be great on toes for the summer time to change up from the pastel shades.

    I really like the look of Girly.
    I would have to try and find a similar shade to wear underneath because watery polishes do my head in haha

  • January 27, 2013

    I actually have on GIrly as we speak and I haaaaattttteee it! Ugg, oh well! BUT, now I’m going to have to go pick up Enchanting with all that shimmer! I don’t think I saw it at all in the bottle, hence why I didn’t pick it up (like I need to add to my lavender collection!).

    AHHH! I love Revlon polishes and I don’t have any of these, but I will grab all of them! haha

  • January 28, 2013

    Oh cool! I love the themes!! :D I think the glitter is really pretty and suits the theme perfectly, I love the blue also, but I’m not so big on wearing blue with my skin tone. Definitely going to look for what is more available :)

  • January 28, 2013

    I want Urban. I’ve been looking for a navy color to add to my collection and this one looks perfect :)

    Love this collection! I first scooped up Heavenly(which looks fab over Urban!) then had to go back for Girly, Enchanted and Urban. Super tempted for Iconic, Trendy and Bubbly as well. Revlon reminds us why they should not be overlooked!
