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.
