Revlon Electric Chrome Collection LE : The Amazing Spiderman 2

** This post is picture heavy. **

Ok, guys. Prepare yourselves for the mother of all posts. Today I have all SIX of the new, limited edition, Electric Chrome collection from Revlon to share with you and they are great. Like seriously drool worthy!

Revlon Electric Chrome Collection limited edition : The Amazing Spiderman Two

It's no secret that Revlon has long been my favourite drugstore brand - their prices are decent, the colours are great, and I've never had any issues with the formula - and when I saw these I HAD TO HAVE THEM. The words "limited edition" draw me in like a moth to a flame. :) The shimmer in these and the colour shift and the ease of application; wowza, I have not been this impressed with a drugstore collection in a long time. They rate right up there with some of my favourite indies, that's how good they are! Have a I gushed enough? Are you convinced? Maybe the swatches will help. Let's get to it...

I used CND Stickey base coat and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri for all of the swatches.

Gwen's Crush
Gwen's Crush has a magenta base with lovely blue shimmer and a subtle purple shift. I heart this one so bad. It's currently on my toes and is the perfect summer colour. Shown here is two coats of Gwen's Crush but with a thicker coat, I could have gotten away with one!

Spidey Sense
Spidey Sense is an orange leaning red that has a pretty shimmer and a subtle deeper red shift. Again, I used two coats but could have gotten away with one.

1000 Volts
This was the last one I picked up because I honestly didn't think I'd like it but, surprise!, it ended up being one of my favourites. 1000 Volts is a bright gold that has an orange shift which you can see on the edges of most of my fingers. Again, I used two coats.

Electrified Web
This was the other one I hesitated on purchasing but I'm so glad I decided to get the whole collection. Electrified Web is a gorgeous burnt orange with a red to yellow shift. The shift on this one was the strongest of the six and shows up best in my photos. Shown here is two coats.

I'm Electro
I'm Electro is a dusty blue with a pretty purple shift. This was the thinnest of the three (and also my least favourite) but I was still able to get great coverage with two coats.

Super-Powered
Oh, Super-Powered... this one was my favourite from the start but I ended up being a touch disappointed that the purple shimmer and shift isn't super visible on the nail. Still, it's a gorgeous blue and again, the formula was perfection. Shown here is two coats.

So, which one is your favourite? As mentioned at the top, this is a limited edition collection so I suggest you run out as soon as you can to pick these up. Revlon truly hit it out of the park with these and I LOVE five out of the six.
 
Revlon can be found at most major drugstores and chains like Wal-Mart and Target.
