Takko Lacquer Strangely Delicious vs. Strangely Delicious: RVMP
Another quick post! I mentioned a few days ago that I would be comparing the original Takko Lacquer Strangely Delicious with the new Strangely Delicious RVMP- so here it is!
Strangely Delicious was created as part of Takko Lacquer’s Fall 2012 collection. It was described as ‘a juicy vibrant orange full with glistening limey green shimmer. Your nails will have a pop of sophisticated with an unpredictable edge and an endless summer. A sweet tart color that will make you pucker up 😉‘
These pictures are 2 coats with topcoat.
It was announced back in June that the pigments used to make Strangely Delicious and Ooh La La were now unavailable, so they would have to either be discontinued or revamped. When the Summer 2013 collection was announced a bit later, we found out that at least Strangely Delicious was able to be revamped- and now called ‘Strangely Delicious: RVMP’. It was described as ‘ a neon bright hot red-orange, still packed with punch you in the face limey green shimmer.‘
As you can see, the new version is completely different and yet, still the same idea- a bright orange with green shimmer. I used 3 coats plus topcoat for these pictures.
I honestly can’t say which I prefer- I like things about both! I prefer the base shade of the RVMP version- I’m a sucker for neons, and this bright sparkly polish wins my heart. But the original Strangely Delicious has a much stronger green flash, and is a bit more ‘interesting’. They’re different enough that it’s worth owning both- if you can find a bottle of the original in a blog sale, try to grab it!
