Revlon Top Speed: Modern Grace

The shade I'm sharing with you in this post is one I picked up when I was on a periwinkle hunt last year.  I was looking for anything that looked remotely periwinkle blue and Revlon's Modern Grace looked rather blue when I saw it in the fluorescent lighting of the pharmacy...

Ah well, it turns out it's rather more of a greyish, bluish lilac to my eye (wow, what a description eh?) than a true periwinkle blue but never mind.  It's still rather pretty!  The formula was pretty fantastic too and while I did my customary two coats, honestly one coat could have easily sufficed here.  Dry time was excellent too and I didn't use my usual quick-drying topcoat because I didn't feel I needed to.  Perhaps I should get me some more of these Top Speed polishes, hmm?

Shade

What do you see?  Periwinkle or purple?
To tell you the truth now I'm seeing both.

Until next time.

    1. Ok! So it's not just me then!! It really depends on the light as to which way this colour leans.

  2. I see both! It looks purple in the light but blue in the shade. Regardless it is a very pretty colour. :)

    1. Agreed! This one's a bit of a chameleon.
