REVLON: Nail Enamel Review

I’ve been recommended by many friends and fellow bloggers lately various Revlon products. I don’t know why but I’ve never really thought of the brand when makeup shopping, I guess for a long time it appeared it appeared to me as a range for elder women. However times have changed, they have the beautiful (and my girl crush) Emma Stone on their advertising campaign and I hear people raving about their products left, right and centre.


Currently at Boots, they have a 3 for the price of 2 offer on Revlon products so I couldn’t resist making a purchase!  After a lot of deliberation I chose a nail polish, their gel eye liner and one of their lip butters and I shall be reviewing all 3 products over the next few weeks.
First to be reviewed is Revlon’s Nail Enamel in Scandalous. As many of my regular readers will know, I have a slight obsession with finding the perfect glitter polish, so couldn’t stop myself from wanting to try this one out.
The colour really appealed to me, a black polish with purple glitter, I couldn’t wait to give it a whirl. In reality, on my nails, the glitter was more of a pink colour which I was a bit disappointed about. To get a decent coverage I had to apply 3 coats as the black is quite thin. This meant it took forever to dry, and if you’re a bit of a fidget like me, smudges and smears are not a good look!
Now I normally always write positive reviews about products I love, so posting a negative write up is a little different for me. The reason I am reviewing it is because I’m in a real catch 22 with it. On one hand the application process was hard work but I completely love the final look. Also I have had it on for 4 days now and not a chip in sight!
It looks like I’m still on the hunt for my perfect glitter polish for now....

  4. I would put it over top of a black nail polish, to thicken up the color a bit. But, I do think the sheer look of this polish can be pretty, too!(: xoxo
