NOTD ~ Revlon Wild Strawberry

Posted on: April 11, 2012

Hi Everyone,
This is Revlon Wild Strawberry, from their Colorstay collection. It is a real bright, pink duo-chrome with highlights of purple, so pretty!


While I was at Nordstrom the other day, I looked at CHANEL’s Tentation. It too is a real bright, pink duo-chrome with highlights of purple.

Although I did not buy the CHANEL Tentation ($26) and I cannot do a comparison on a wheel or my nails, I think the Revlon Wild Strawberry is a perfect dupe for the CHANEL. Pretty darn close, and for the $21 difference in price, if there is a slight difference, I don’t care. I love the color and I’m so glad to spend $4.99 to get it as opposed to $26. I’m just sayin’. Anyone who knows me, knows I love CHANEL. I love their handbags, clothes, Karl, make-up, mascara and especially their polishes. The polish was always a piece of CHANEL I could afford and own. When they were priced at $18 I could justify, even when they creeped up to $23, I could still qualify purchasing. But now that they have gone to $26 and $28 for limited editions, I cannot justify spending that on a nail polish. As much as I love me some CHANEL. So, I will continue to haunt the CHANEL website for new colors and do my best to find dupes.

BTW, what do you think of my new layout? Like, or not so much? I’m still trying to find the perfect layout. I have so many posts I want to do but I want the layout to be perfect. I’m still trying to figure out how to have a blog roll on my page so you can see the blogs I follow, maybe there is one you will like as well! Anyway, let me know what you think. And, what does a sister have to do to get some love?

Hey Judi, I just love your blog and how you are finding dupes to the chanel “finger” nail polishes, it’s like you are an investigator. With regard to the new look of your blog, it’s veyr easy to ead and get around but it’s not you. That’s just my opinion. Can’t put my finger on why it’s not you or how it could be more you but maybe the color? Don’t know. I think maybe it’s just not that visually interesting. Hope that feed back helps 🙂


Thank you for that, I appreciate it. I am still looking, I don’t really like this one either. Check back tomorrow, I’m thinking it will be different. Thanks so much Lori! XoXo

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
