NOTW: Revlon Not So Blueberry

This is probably one of the most difficult to capture nail polishes. EVER.
Purples and blues can always be a little tricky - when it's a blue purple duochrome? It's over. It's never going to be completely accurately photographed.
Luckily, I had quite a lot of time on my hands one afternoon and decided to take about 100 photos of this one polish to get the right capture of what this polish is really about.
Not So Blueberry is a light periwinkle that shines blue and purple, sometimes greenish. It's got some silver flecks. It's also one of Revlon's scented polishes which got a lot of buzz a couple of months ago. I didn't pay that much attention to them until I saw this on the shelf and was breath-taken by the color in the bottle.
I mentioned this before in a video but the blueberry smell really does come through. It's slightly there when you're painting but when it's dry it's like BAM BLUEBERRIES. It's quite interesting. It really actually just smells like candy.
This applied pretty nicely. It's on the thinner side, so I believe I used about 4 coats. Base coat I used this time was Nubar and top coat was my beloved Seche Vite. This lasted perfectly for 2 days, then I had to remove it because I had an event to go to that called for a more appropriate polish.
These can be purchased at drugstores and retail between $5 and $7.
The rest of this post is just pictures of different angles so you can really see the duochrome magic of this polish :)
