Revlon Royal... Cobalt jelly, anyone?

Hi Kids!
I can't believe I haven't seen anyone Blog about the new Revlon Top Speed enamels! I found a large step display in Walgreens and picked up 2- Royal and Emerald.

Revlon Royal is an unbelievably gorgeous shade of deep cobalt blue. This is one of those polishes that's not a creme, and not a full jelly, but somewhere between, a hybrid. For the sake of classification, I'm going to say this is a highly pigmented jelly. The formula is thick and sticky, making application a bit tricky because it's too thick for the Revlon brush. I didn't add thinner because I knew from swatching on a nail wheel that Royal is a 2 coater, and I didn't want to mess with that. This polish skimmed over very quickly and dried to the touch to a satin finish in minutes.

I love this one sooooo much. Revlon Royal positively glows with richness, and depth and is the most perfect shade of vivid cobalt blue I have ever seen in a nail polish. It's unfortunate that my pictures do not bring out just how amazingly rich, deep and vivid this polish really is.

This is why I'm calling this a jelly. Look at how glow-y this looks with light shining through!
















Here is  a side by side with Orly Royal Navy. If you back away from your monitor, you can see the base difference a bit better. Irl, tRevlon Royal looks *almost* blurple next to the Orly.

Ooh, after reading your post I went and got this color at Walgreens.  It's gorgeous!  And I got a coupon good for $5 - and can be used towards a purchase of $5 or more.  So the next bottle will be free!  There was a silver foil color that I might just get for nail art...  By the way, that's a really nice shot of the light showing through the nails from underneath.  (Makes me wish I could grow mine past the length of my fingertip, hee hee).

Oh my goodness, I need to get this. The hunt for the perfect blue jelly might just be over.
I guess this where the hunt for the perfect brown jelly begins..hehe
