Today is Day 24 in my "30 Days of Blues", and today, I have for you a polish that was a recommendation in several comments in my cobalt blue posts. Many of you told me that Revlon Royal may just be what I was looking for, and I think you may be right...
This is 3 coats of Revlon Royal, a bright, cobalt blue jelly. I did 3 coats, because I had a thin spot on my ring finger. If I had waited more time between my first coat and my second, I wouldn't have had the thin spot, as it was from drag. So it's definitely a polish that can be opaque in 2 coats, just make sure to go slow. I also recommend 2 coats, if you can, simply because it's brighter at 2, rather than 3 coats.
I'm not sure why I hadn't picked up Royal before. I'm not a huge fan of Revlon's formula, so maybe that is why. I also thought it was going to be more of a creme, rather than a jelly. Not sure where I got that. LOL. Anyway, Royal is a perfect cobalt jelly. I hate to say it, because essentially it means that I wasted $20, but this is so much better, in my opinion, than RBL IKB:2012. Though, I do need to do a direct comparison between IKB and Royal just to make sure, I think that this polish is what I wanted IKB:2012 to be.
Best part, this Revlon cost me $6 and that was at Walgreen's. If you can get it at a big box (which the ones around me are always OOS of Royal), it's less than 5 bucks.
