Above: Sugar Plum, a delightful plum shimmer with a plush dimensional effect, this shade also seems to have a slight charcoal base. This shade is further enhanced with red, silver and blue micro glitter. I found all of these shades to be highly pigmented and while they applied nicely, these do dry pretty quick. If you have a small area that you need to go over to correct, work quickly so that your application isn't flawed. 2 coats.
Below: Orchid is a pinkish mauve tone with silver and pink micro glitter. I love the textured look that these finishes have. Both Orchid and Ocean below have a slight foil finish, and they applied almost streak free--if you work fast! When I removed these two, the polish on the cotton balls looked like a straight-up foil. Again, two coats.
Below: Let Ocean (turquoise shimmer with gold and lighter turquise micro glitter) be my example to you of what happens when you forget that these are quick-drying polishes! This was the first one I swatched and you can see several flaws that when I went to correct them at my normal pace, it was too late. The fine piece of fuzz on my middle finger was already firmly embedded. You can see at the tips a bit of unevenness, because when I went to touch up a few light areas, it was already dry and I was unable to cover the brush marks when I applied the second coat. Once I remembered how quick these dried, I didn't have a problem with the other three.
Below: This is one coat on Emerald, and there's just one small light area on my index finger, so it's very pigmented and applied like a dream. This creamy medium to medium/light green creme is similar to some other shades, but a very quick search didn't yield any exact matches. I'll have to do a more thorough search tomorrow and let you know if I find anything close.
Below: Here's a quick bottle look with Essie Going Incognito, the first possible dupe that came to mind. No dupe there!
Below: Another possible contender for dupe-dom was China Glaze Starboard from the upcoming Anchors Away collection. I was way off in my thought process on that one!
You know, I really wasn't going to buy any of the new Top Speeds, because at first glance, a lot of them looked very similar to other shades. There may be some re-promotes in there or similar shades to other Revlons, I'm not really sure without going back and studying them a bit more. Even after I looked at them sitting on my desk all day, I thought "Why did you buy those? Surely they're nothing special." I never have too much of a problem admitting when I'm wrong, and so I admit. I was wrong! These are really nice polishes, from the formula to the colors. I love the micro glitter shimmer finishes, and Emerald is not only a great green shade, but it's virtually a one-coater. And they were on sale. Win.
