Revlon Spice It Up

Today I bring to you the eponymous polish from Revlon's Spice It Up Holiday 2011 Collection-- Spice It Up. I originally saw this over on Polished Claws Up! and immediately feel in love with it, so I started scouring the drug stores for it. I was able to find a virtually untouched display at Walgreens and grabbed this and Mistletoe-- and then went back for a few more later.

Spice It Up is a deep burgundy polish that has red and gold shimmer throughout. This color doesn't necessarily scream out "holiday" but there is a lot of richness and depth to this polish so it fits in perfectly. This went on really nicely-- formula was great. This is nicely pigmented and so only two coats were necessary to make it opaque. This is another Top Speed polish, and I don't recall any issues with drying (as in, it didn't take very long to dry between coats). My pictures make this look more brown, sort of similar to Julep Boris & Nicole, but Spice It Up is definitely more red. The second picture in artificial light really shows you the red sparkle, though it's a bit blurry when you blow it up to full size.

I really like Spice It Up. I'm sorry my pictures don't capture more of the velvety redness of the polish, but this is definitely a winner in my book. If you see this, I would grab it!
