Revlon "Runway Pearl" Nail Polish (Pictures) New For Spring

I spied a new display from Revlon at the drugstore recently, filled entirely with only one color- "Runway Pearl".  (I believe last year's "Black With Envy" came out around the same time?).  Here are some pictures:








Color:  What looks like a simple white is actually hiding a pink/gold duo-chrome flash! Very pearl-like.  I want to try layering this over a darker shade as well.

Formula/Application: Very nice.  I did 3 thin layers here and although it was still on the sheer side, I love how it looks. It has the pink/gold shimmer flash in some lights, and looks like a creamy white in others.  Zero streaking makes this a pleasure to apply & wear.


Where To Buy: I found my bottle of Runway Pearl at Harmon Beauty.  They typically have the best prices for Revlon (at least around NJ) at only $3.79 each!

  1. This is really pretty, Maribeth and trust you to spot something like this first! I think I may have a similar shade tucked away in the "Chanel Vault"...will have to go & compare. Glad to know that there were no application issues, as Revlon wasn't batting 1,000 in that department - it seems like they may have stepped up their game. On another note, I see you've begun watermarking your photos...looks good (ie: not obtrusive) and even though I should do the same to mine (God knows they get ripped off without any credit on a daily basis), I still haven't been able to bring myself to do it....sigh....plus, it's more work to figure the whole process out & I'm plumb out of time as it is....*complaining festival here*

    1. I was wondering which polish would be this one's inspiration, since Revlon is known for doing their "version" of popular shades. I definitely feel like they are stepping up their game lately! And-yes, I started playing around with the watermarking (chock that up to all the copyright reading I've been doing lately...enough to make you paranoid as hell!). I figured I could at least try it, although I am totally with you- the extra work makes it a pain in the rear! :)

  2. I remember reading somewhere that Chanel has a pearly white coming out this summer, but for the life of me I can't find any info about it. So maybe this was meant to dupe it?

    1. Oooh, I wonder what it is. They seem to love particularly love recreating Chanel's, so that would make sense!

  6. I don't usually do white but I think I will certainly keep my eyes pealed for this one--it looks absolutely gorgeous on your nails!

  7. Chanel Attraction is the new pearly shade, but they call it an oyster white. I can't decide if this looks more like their Pearl Drop or not. It's not as bright white as Attraction. If Revlon had made it more metallic white with the oyster undertone, they'd have a spot on dupe.
