Revlon Nail Enamel in Dreamer

A Dream 
by Edgar Allan Poe
In visions of the dark night
       I have dreamed of joy departed—
But a waking dream of life and light
       Hath left me broken-hearted.

Ah! what is not a dream by day
To him whose eyes are cast

On things around him with a ray
       Turned back upon the past?
That holy dream—that holy dream,
       While all the world were chiding,
Hath cheered me as a lovely beam
       A lonely spirit guiding.

What though that light, thro’ storm and night,
So trembled from afar—
What could there be more purely bright
In Truth’s day-star?

Could this nail polish be a holy dream? Let’s find out!


It’s a soft grey-toned periwinkle blue creme. The greyness is more obvious in person.



The application was okay, with a little streakiness. However, it wasn’t so bad that I cursed in frustration and flung the bottle at the imaginary fireplace and then sobbed my eyes out. I’m not that dramatic. Most of the time. :)

Overall I thought this wasn’t bad. For the price, I don’t mind owning it. It’s a pretty standard summer nail color, so you’ll have to decide how badly you want a pale periwnkle blue. if streakiness bothers you, this one might irk you enough to skip it.

  1. Cute light shade :-) It’s unfortunate that light nail polishes tend to get a bit streaky, but I guess we will just have to live with that.
