Revlon Mischievous v. Sally Hansen CSM Commander in Chic

Posted on: November 22, 2013

This really isn’t a SMACKDOWN but more of a comparison of Revlon’s Mischievous and Sally Hansen’s CSM Commander in Chic.

Holding 2 bottles is hard especially when I want you to see the nails, not the bottles. So I though this would be easier.

I manicured my hands with both polishes using my half and half method that I still say I invented, but as you can see there is virtually no difference between the 2.

Revlon Mischievous has been around a long time. Mischievous was released in 2007. It may be the original Commander in Chic Color released by Revlon. I could not find a release date for CiC but the earliest review I found was 2011 so I’m assuming it was released in either late 2010 or early. 2011.

Sally Hansen’s Commamder in Chic and Revlon’s Mischievous has been one of those colors that I think every brand of polish has made. Lets see if I can remember some of them off the top of my head:
1. Essie Merino Cool
2. WnW Wet Cement
3. Rimmell Steel Grey
4. SOPI Metro Chic
5. American Apparel Mouse
6. Barry M Cappuccino
7. L’Oreal Greyt expectations
I’m sure there are more out there but these are the ones I own and know to be dupes for Michievous and Commander in Chic.
Revlon’s Mischievous is probably in the top 5 requests I get for swatches. It is in the regular line of Revlon and I do not believe it will discontinued any time soon. It is numbered 360. It may have been re-promoted with a different name and no number which Revlon is wont to do with their more popular colors. The formula was fine as were the brush and the bottle. Dry time was manageable,
Commander in Chic has the wide flat brush that I like so well because it fits my nail bed perfectly. I know some of you aren’t fans of the wide brush but if you dip the brush in the bottle then wipe on 4 sides you will get a regular size brush that works the same as the Revlon brush. I do like the wide flat brush, it makes polishing my nails go faster and again dry time was great with the CiC.
I’m trying not to use quick dry top coats and I did not use a quick dry top coat on this one, either brand.
I don’t know if its just me but it seems like when I use a top coat the nail polish will wrinkle. If I don’t use a top coat I don’t have that problem. Any one else having that issue? Let me know, if for no other reason then to let me know I’m not alone in that.

These were the first pictures I took of these 2 polishes so now you can see why I took them out. But they do show that the pointer and middle finger are wearing the Revlon Mischievous and the ring finger and pinky are wearing Sally Hansen’s CiC. Hopefully that makes sense to you.
I’ve had my nails painted this way for a couple of days now and not one person has made a comment about 2 different colored nails, which usually always happens when I use more contrasting colors.
There is no winner here and there is no loserhere. These are both great nail polishes. The only difference is the price Revlon sells around here for $4.99 and the CiC sells for $7.49. But you can always find coupons for both brands. (As a side note: Revlon in the regular line sells for $4.99, the Top Speed line is between $5-6.99 and the Revlon Colorstay are $8.99. )

As you all know Commander in Chic is my favorite polish of them all and thanks to my friend Coco I now have a life time supply of CiC. Thanks again Coco, you little nut!

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

I love this colour too Judi.I have bought it over and over just like you!I do use top coat to dry my polish because I am too impatient.The only problem I usually have is tip shrinkage.My favorite is Seche Vite.Linda xo

I’ve read where shrinkage from Seche Vite could be your hair products you use after you’ve done you’re nails. There is a chemical in some hair products that can cause SV to shrink. If you use hair products after doing your nails, just wash your hands right away, that may help. I need to remove this today for the #NPLClub and I don’t want to. I’m loving it so much!

Maybe ill love this new one just the same.

Thanks Linda, you know I love your comments.

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
