Blue lagoon 092 is a robin's egg blue, a colour I have 2-3 variations of. Lagoon is unique in the sense that it has glass flecks so the colour has a bit of depth. In the bottle it's a beautiful blue and you can see the flecks if you look real close.
Here's a closeup of flecks:
In terms of application, it's gross. The flakies give it texture of what could be best described as porridge. The color is streaky, yet chunky. It does not dry as fast at it could and needs about 3-4 coats to reach full opacity.
I really do love the way it looks with 3 coats and a topcoat on, but for the price you pay (7-8$cdn) you'd think Revlon would have a nice formula like NYC Colour or Wet N Wild polishes (2-3$cdn). I do not own many Revlon polishes and their formula is the biggest reason. With that said, after the pain-in-the-butt application and gross texture, it does look fantastic at the end. The finish is one of my favorite light blue colors, because the rest are cremes and Blue Lagoon stands out. All in all, it's a toss-up between me liking the colour and finish, while hating the polish itself.
hmmm. I hate that you say the formula is so terrible.. I am searching so hard for a dupe for HC Sky (the formula is terrible on that too)- even though Lagoon looks darker, it could've satisfied that lemming, since I bought OPI I Vant to be A-lone Star is too gray :(ReplyDelete
Aw, that's too bad :(ReplyDelete
Although somewhat runny, I think Sephora by OPI Havana Dreams might be close to HC sky?
