Hello beauties! So I actually brought this nail varnish to match my bridesmaid dress for my friends wedding in my Revlon Haul. I felt like a right idiot waking around superdrug, picking up every nail varnish that looked like it and comparing it to a picture of the dress on my phone. Needs must though! Nail varnish has changed so much since I was a kid. Now we have foils, wraps, caviar beads, gel polish, magnetic polish… I could go on. But now we have scented nail polish! I know other brands have done this before, but it’s the first time I’ve used any scented nail polish.
The Revlon Parfumerie™ Nail Enamel Collection reveals a light and enticing fragrance when dry, for a whole new way to experience colour. Vibrant and punchy shades, like China Flower, are infused by exotic & fruity notes.
First off, I love the bottles. They actually remind me of little perfume bottles. Which is the point I guess. I thought that maybe because the lid is quite small and round that it would be hard to actually control the brush, but it surprisingly wasn’t. The brush is awesome too. Not big that it makes a mess of your nail bed, but not too small that you have to keep topping the brush up with polish for one nail, which usually leads to streaking. I didn’t get any scents from the polish while applying, but I didn’t smell that usual chemically nail polish smell, which is good! This shade has a fine glitter based, so it took me a couple of coats to get the shade I required to match my dress. The only bad thing about applying multiple coats is drying time. I applied about 4 coats and it wasn’t the fastest drying, but it’s never going to be when you apply that many coats. Even though I applied so many coats, it lasted nearly a week! Which I was really shocked at. This isn’t a colour that I would wear very often because it’s not really me, but it was perfect for my dress I wore for my friends wedding. At least I know now that it’s a good nail varnish.
I would definitely buy more shades in this range. And maybe next time I’ll actually smell it to see what it smells like! I think I was in too much if a rush when I applied it to actually give it a wif! These are currently available at Superdrug for £6.49 with a range of 17 sades all totally wearable.
