Nail of the Day: Revlon Copper Penny

I took a stroll through the drugstore yesterday to check out what's new in the cosmetics department, and I stumbled across two new Revlon nail polish releases: metallic polishes and scented polishes. They were Buy One Get One 50% off, so I picked up two metallics and two scented polishes.

Today's Nail of the Day, Copper Penny, is one of the metallics, and OMG I am in LOVE. I bought this thinking it would be fun for summer, and now I know I'm right. This color really is exactly what a brand new penny is in shade, but also has some micro-shimmer to it. I can't wait to rock this on my fingers and toes this summer (and all the months until then), because it is totally a Greek goddess gold/copper/bronze that will look absolutely amazing with a tan.

natural light, 2 coats

This polish could definitely be a one-coater, but for swatching sake I did two just to be on the safe side. Would you wear it?

  1. Oh I would absolutely wear it, what a gorgeous colour! I'm a huge fan of golds in general. It reminds me a little of the new MAC Soirée polish that's part of the new collection, probably because I hadn't looked into gold polishes before seeing Soirée shown on YT.

  2. so pretty! I hate that it takes sooo long for polishes to come to Australia. I doubt I'll see this in stores anytime soon. sad.

  3. It looks gorgeous on you, but with my skintone (NC35) I wouldn't like it on me...

  4. Very pretty! BTW did you get your 3 free nail polishes on Zoya.com? All you have to do is pay $6.95 for shipping and enter the code: FB2011 at checkout. That's it!

    Zoya was running a contest to see if they could get 20,000 'likes' by Jan. 3rd, and if they did they would give away three free nail colors of your choice. I placed my order already. The coupon is only good until 1/7 so get your order in!

    (Check out their Facebook page for more info)

    And feel free to share the code!! Have fun picking out only 3 from their selecton of 300!!!! hahahaha

  12. I referred to you in my last haul because I ended up buying Copperglaze Platinum, which reminded me of this color you mentioned in your drugstore haul.

    The power of influence! lol

    I thought I bought the same one as you but I was mistaken, they are both lovely colors though. :)
