NOTD: Revlon Chroma Chameleon ~ Aquamarine

Posted on: May 14, 2013

Aquamarine in the new Revlon Chroma/Chameleon . These have just been released by Revlon. They are in a different shape bottle for Revlon with a smaller amount of polish as well. Just about half the size of a regular bottle of polish. A regular bottle of Revlon is .5 oz these new bottles are .29 oz. they sell in my area for $5.99 and the regular Revlon’s sell for $6.99. I don’t know about you but if I’m paying more and receiving less, it had better be a darn good polish. Are the Chroma Chameleon a darn good polish? In my opinion, No, they are not. They are supposed to be a duo-chrome and you do see a bit of the purple around the edges in the bottle of the blue aquamarine I chose. But, it did not transfer to the nail. It seems more like a foil finish polish. It was a bit fussy to apply, like a foil finish polish would be. It also felt like it was never going to dry. I applied 3 thin coats, let each coat dry thoroughly and then added a quick dry topcoat, and I still had a ding (you can see that on my ring finger below)

I’m happy to try these, as I am happy to try all new polishes so I can report back to you, but in my opinion these deserve to be passed. I love the Duo-chrome effect but this Revlon product just doesn’t deliver that. It’s a pretty color and I do like the smaller bottles. More and more I am liking the smaller bottle size and I would like to see more companies do this. I like the smaller bottles, just not the teeny-weeny brushes that sometimes come with. I give this polish 2/5 stars. 🌟🌟

I forgot to mention in my Yard Sale/Thrifting haul video I found this stove at a yard sale for $100. It was spotless, had all the extra elements and the books to go with it. It is perfect for the rental we’ve been cleaning on.

This is Jilly and I on Mother’s Day, my first time in a real Sephora store! It was a bit overwhelming and just when I found the “nail bar” the kids were ready to go. At least we now have a full on Sephora in Spokane so that will save the drive up north to Ulta when we do go to Spokane. Sephora is about 2 stores from Nordstrom. What more could a girl ask?

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

I was excited to see this post from you.I have been tempted to buy the purple one in this line.I have lots of purples and I love my duo chromes.I am glad I passed on these as I have others very similar that I really like.Zoya Ki is one that comes to mind.Great deal on that stove!


Thanks Linda, another great purple duo-chrome is from Sally Hansen LUSTRE shine called Azure 004. I have used more than half the bottle. I love it so much.. It is gorgeous! Let me know if you find it. Xoxo

Hi Judi – thanks for this review. No sense in buying a duochrome that doesn’t deliver. I also think that if these companies want to downsize their bottle size – they ought to downsize the price to go along with it…..just sayin’ …….


I’m with ya on this one. I don’t usually complain when companies raise their prices because I know in this economy it is tough to make a buck, as in butter London, who raised their price to $15, but kept the same size bottle. That didn’t bother me, but it does bother me when they raise the price and make the bottle smaller. I hope that made sense for you, it made perfect sense to me! Ha! Hope you have a great day.

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
