Nerd-up #1: The Spider-man (Electric Chrome) Collection by Revlon





I went into Shopper's Drug Mart recently to browse, and finally came across a display of Revlon's Spider-man Collection (aka the Electric Chrome collection)!  I was beyond excited, because this kind of collection combines two of my favourite things:  nerdiness and beauty!  Hence the name of this post:  Nerd-up!

I was able to grab the gloss in Killer-Watt, and the nail polish in Spidey Sense!  I am relieved that my store didn't have the blue gloss (Electro Shock), as I am sure I would have been compelled to buy it just based on the novelty.  The gloss I did get is a pretty deep pink, almost red, colour with a fine red/blue glitter in it.  You can't see the glitter unless you get really close to the mirror, so if anyone calls you on it just tell them they are too damn close.

The nail polish is the real winner here.  It is hard to capture how beautiful this is on camera.  The glitter in it is so fine, it almost glows on your nails.  This is going to be the perfect red come Christmas time.  ONE COAT ALERT.  I am shocked by how smooth and pigmented this polish looks with just one coat.  I applied this with my Seche Vite top coat to give it some extra shine.

I would say that if you are on a budget and get one thing from this collection, go for one of the polishes. They are truly spectacular, and I know I will have to employ a lot of restraint to avoid picking up more.  The gloss is sheer, and non-sticky, but overall, fairly average.

I am going to see The Amazing Spider-man 2 next weekend (already got my tix in Ultra AVX), so excited!! I love ANYTHING from Marvel.  I wish that brands would put out more tv and movie based make-up collections.
