Revlon Haute Rocks Pebbled Nail Polish

Caribbean Cove // Balinese Bay // Moroccan Oasis // Lana’i Lagoon // Mayan Riviera // Brazilian Beach

I apologize for the lack of posts over the past few days – I’ve been swamped at work. I’m hoping to get back to posting every day soon.  Today I have quick nail wheel swatches of Revlon’s newest limited edition polish collection, the Haute Rocks polishes, which are supposed to have a “pebbled” texture “inspired by exotic pebbled beaches.”

Quick review: I don’t like these alone (though you might), and I don’t like the “pebbled” texture (though I generally love textures). However, I really love them layered with topcoat added. I bought six of the eight available shades, and have bottle shots of the two I didn’t buy:

On to the swatches!

Revlon Haute Rocks Swatches

Caribbean Cove // Balinese Bay // Moroccan Oasis // Lana’i Lagoon // Mayan Riviera // Brazilian Beach

The above is one dabbed coat plus one regular coat.  They’re textured all right, but sort of lumpy looking. I found that the lumpy look persisted with topcoat, but perhaps I just needed more coats.

I’m not sure if you can tell, but while all of them are densely glittered, Brazilian Beach (the gold) and Mayan Riviera (the green) are a little less dense than the others.  Lana’i Lagoon (the blue) had a thinner formula than the rest – though all were quite thin/fluid and easy to apply.  I tried adding matte topcoat (since the display suggests it) but it didn’t change the look – these are in a matte base.

These really shine layered. Here they are over creme polishes, and I’m sure they’d work beautifully in jelly sandwiches. These swatches are in the opposite order, sorry!

    I got the Moroccan Oasis and painted my nails this morning. It is driving me CRAZY. I like textured, but this is like sandpaper. I’ll be removing by the end of the day.
