It's funny that this one is called Impulsive. I did sort of buy it impulsively. I didn't have a lot of purples at the time, and I still really don't, so I just grabbed it and bought it. It's a pretty purple, and is a bit brighter in person than my photos show. For some reason my camera wanted to make it look more on the blue side than it really is.
Impulsive is a nice purple creme. It's almost a dusty purple shade, as it isn't too bright, and isn't too dark. It's pretty dull in terms of the shade, but it's still a pretty color. I like how it's still pretty "grapey," but isn't obnoxiously bright.
Like most Revlon polishes I've tried, it's a little thin though. I used three coats for my photos and topped it with a coat of Out the Door. Even though it's a darker color, it still needed three. Two looked alright, but it had a couple thin spots. It wasn't streaky at all though.
I suppose the three coats are worth it though. I love the colors of some Revlon polishes, and while they're thin and require a few coats, the end product looks nice. I'm not typically drawn to purples, but now I'm glad that I bought this polish. It's a very versatile shade, and I'm now thinking of what else I want to use it for.
I might have to do a gradient or some nail art now that I have a few good purples. This might pair nicely with the subdued purple shades from the Sinful Colors Haute Rebel collection!
