Revlon — Impulsive (Nail Enamel) Swatch & Review

Revlon Nail Enamel in Impulsive

Brand: Revlon

I actually got this nail polish for free last year, with a box of Playtex tampons. How random, huh?

Judging from the packaging, they gave out a range of six shades, but Impulsive was the only one left on the shelves, so that’s what I got.

Impulsive (240), which remains one of Revlon’s core colors, is a deep purple cream that leans cobalt blue: pretty close to being a blurple. I love vampies, blurples and creams, so this is exactly my cup of tea, and probably what I would have picked for myself given the choice. (Who am I kidding? I’d have picked up six boxes of feminine hygiene products and awaited the apocalypse in style.)

Application was pretty nice. Two coats was fine, but I did three for extra oomph. The only drawback was a slight tendency to bubble, but that might have been exacerbated by my painting my nails in front of the air conditioning. Overall, this is a very good nail polish buy at the drugstore.

  1. Those are all nice shades they included as freebies. Usually they give away some random sheer puke green that didn’t sell.
    Playtex tampons are SO much better than Tampax! And for some reason not all Shoppers stock Playtex – so weird.
