Untried Wednesday- Revlon Super-Powered

I love superheroes, it's just a thing for me.  It has always been a thing.  If this somehow comes as a shock to you, let me point you in the direction of my Captain America mani.  When I was little, I used to play Batman, Robin, and Catwoman with my cousins and run around the backyard.  Saturday mornings I was up early to watch Spiderman cartoons.  It's just always been a thing for me.

So whenever I see polish collections themed after superheroes I am all over that.  I saw a display at my Rite Aid and had to pick up Super-Powered.  It reminded me of Butter London's Scouse, which I LOVE, but can't wear because the Butter London formula peels off of my nails in sheets.  So I exercised self control and only picked this one up.

Super-Powered is cobalt blue polish with a purple shimmer running through it.  It paints opaque in two coats, maybe one careful coat.  It is a vibrant color and I love wearing it, unfortunately the shimmer does not well translate onto the nail.  In certain angles you can see a hint of purple, but it's very faint.  It is still very pretty, but it's not what I had been hoping for.  Also it smeared all over my fingers when I removed it and stained my nails a little.

As a side note, this polish was purchased with my own money. I am not cool enough to be sent polish for review purposes.
