50 Shades of Sunday ~ Revlon Mischievous

Posted on: December 2, 2012

For those of you new to my blog, first off Welcome! and secondly 50 Shades of Sunday is a series I do every Sunday where I wear a polish from my collection that I’ve never worn before. It is a way for me to actually use my polish. I always say, I don’t want to collect nail polish and I don’t want to hoard nail polish, I want to wear my nail polish!!

Revlon Mischievous. I have had this polish for quite a while, I don’t remember when I bought it or if someone sent it to me. I wasn’t planning on a 50 Shades this week, I was going to use the Russian Navy I’ve had on the last 3 days but I noticed in the stats section an unusual amount of search requests for Revlon Mischievous, so here we are.
This was a thinner formula than usual for Revlon, but yet all the pictures of my nails is 1 coat, with a topcoat of Seche-Vite. I thought it unusual for a thinner formula to have such great coverage. This is the taupe-y, mushroom-y color that I keep buying over and over. I found 5 other bottles of polish that are very similar to Mischievous.

From left to right: Essie merino cool, Sally Hansen Commander in Chic ( my all time favorite polish ever!), Revlon Mischievous, Barry M Cappucino, Revlon VIP and OPI Berlin There Done That.
Out of the 5, Barry M Cappucino is the closest. In fact they are identical, if you ask me. The 2nd closest is Revlon VIP. VIP is one of those Revlon polishes that was released in a “collection” but I knew it would be a dupe for a Revlon in the regular collection. If a Revlon polish name has a number to go along with, it is part of the regular collection, no number, more than likely a “re-promote”.
The VIP is a tad more purple than Mischievous. The Sally Hansen C in C and Essie are just a bit lighter and OPI BTDT is way lighter. I also looked at my OPI You Don’t Know Jacques, it is way browner and darker. L’Oreal greyt expectations is the same as C in C.

I know my camera sucks, but hopefully you can see the numbers and no number on the Revlon bottles.
Revlon Mischievous and Barry M are both listed on my dupe page for CHANEL Particuliere. This is another color from CHANEL that Revlon and Barry M both have documented that their renderings were to dupe Particuliere. See Wikipedia Chanel Particuliere for more details. I do not have the CHANEL polish but I did publish it on my dupe page because of the findings on Wikipedia. Dupe or not, Revlon Mischievous, Barry M Cappucino & Mushroom, Revlon VIP are a great neutral color that I happen to love. I think this polish could be worn anywhere, anytime. Maybe not a job interview!


Revlon Mischievous is also one of those colors that looks great on shorter nails as well as longer. Did you notice I cut my nails? They were getting too long, I was growing them out for the holidays but that’s 3 weeks away and by then they will be nice and long.

This is my favorite picture from our trip to Spokane a couple weeks ago. This is me trying to take the picture, Jilly is on the left with a look only a daughter can give her Mother and Ashley is on my right posing. This picture makes me happy.
💅As always, thanks for stopping by.

I really like this colour.I seem to have bought it over and over,too!I am still tempted to buy C in C,also,what is going on with me?Do you ever go more west in Washington?Maybe Bellingham?


I get that way about once a year, I had a friend in Elk, WA but they have moved to Seattle so probably Seattle would be as close to Bellingham as I would get. I lived in Seattle all through the 70’s and I love that city!


Love it! Now…this color was formerly called Perplex, is that correct? If it is, I have it and love it! 🙂 I LOOVE the mushroomy/greigey colors!


Perplex is now Naughty. It is more of a purple-ish duo-shimmer-y delight! Naughty/Perplex is one of my favorite colors of all time. This one is a straight up cream, no shimmer, no other color mixed in. But if you have Commander in Chic, wet n Wild concrete? Rimmell Steel, Essie merino cool, Sephora by OPI Metro Chic, L’Oreal greyt expectations, Revlon VIP and probably a dozen more you would have this color. It is a great color. I haven’t worn Naughty in a while, maybe I’ll wear it and if I do I’ll put a pic on the blog and twitter.

Thanks Lu, hope you have a great week!

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
