O.B.A.G. Oldie But A Goodie

I have another "Oldie-But-A-Goodie" post. 

Here are two of my favorite old skool duo-chromes by Revlon  back in law school around 1997-1999 they had a line called "ZING", and I bought 2 of them.

Revlon CherryZING
2 coats

It's a beautiful bright fuchsia shimmer that flashes hot ass orange!

Straight ahead this polish just looks like a bright fuchsia, but when it turns just an inch in either direction and you get this...

BAM... or should I say ZING....I love it!!!!

It's so old, you can barely see the name Revlon :)

Revlon KhakiZING
2 coats

A gorgeous icy purple shimmer that flashes olive green.  I wore this one A LOT, because I only have 1/2 a bottle left...and get this after almost 10 years, the formula was still perfect...no thinner required! :)

Pin It!

:( I used to have BOTH of those! I loved them though the formula left something to be desired. Now I'm sad. LOL

I had forgotten all about KhakiZING...I picked that up when it was a new polish, but alas, it was discarded in the reduction of household items...silly me, I've grown the collection to 8 times that size. Thanks for the beautiful reminder. I loved that polish!

Love these! For some reason, I only hung on to Rose Zing when I was doing my stash purges through the 90s. Silly men.

Just reading through old post and came across this. OMG, I still have my CherryZing but have no idea what happened to my KhakiZing! I agree, it's still a beautiful color after all this time. It continues to make the cut when I'm purging my older nail polishes!!
