Revlon Rain Forest

Hello, ladies.

Since Pantone declared 2013 the year of Emerald Green, I felt the urge to jump the gun and try out one of the loveliest greens I have.

Rain Forest, a near dupe of China Glaze Glittering Garland, is a deep hunter green creme base flushed with emerald shimmer.  I like how the edges are a bit blackened, adding more depth to an already rich, festive polish.

The formula was fantastic, as I've found all the ColorStays to be.  Precise application and opaque and self-leveling in two coats.  An absolute joy to apply.



I know I do this often, but my apologies for slightly wonky pictures.  I've been fiddling with my camera settings, various lightings, and new hand positions and I'm trying to find something that works for me.  It's definitely a learning process and I appreciate everyone that bears with me as I try to master my photography skills.

Any and all advice/help welcome!

  1. This looks beautiful! I love green. I'm always messing around trying to get the right picture too. It can get frustrating, that's for sure! Do you have it on the macro setting?

  2. Yup, it's on macro. It's not a DSLR though so it's not going to be as amazingly clear as it would be with those lenses.

  3. Getting good pictures is hard, I think. You really have to find the perfect balance of camera settings, angles, and lighting. I certainly haven't figured it out, yet! lol. I'm hoping that after tax time I can get a nice camera. I think that will help a lot. My little 100 dollar digital camera just isn't cutting it. lol.

  4. It's super frustrating because I obviously love polish but I have absolutely no photography skills. It's sad that to be a good blogger I need both!

  7. That is how I feel, too. In fact, I just did a really beautiful snow covered tree mani but my pictures suck, so it doesn't even look that great in my post. I tried making a light box, but for some reason that seriously just makes my pictures turn out worse. :-/ I'm so jealous of the blogs with impeccable photos. I wish they would share their knowledge!

  8. This is such a nice green! The shimmer is really gorgeous. And I feel your pain with getting good pictures, I struggle with it too. It's so frustrating because I want to do the polish justice!

  11. It's actually quite different. The green is much more vibrant here and the shimmer is waaaay more present and not gold. I'd pick this one over the OPI any day.

  12. I always see this one, pick it up, and then put it back. I may have to give it a try!

  15. I love this polish! I've used it here and there for accents, but for some reason I haven't gotten around to wearing it on its own yet. Need to remedy that because it really is stunning--I love the deep green that's still brightly colourful, and the golden shimmer is just gorge. :D

  16. This is such a you color so I highly recommend you using it as a fully mani soon! I can only imagine how great it will look with your skin tone!
