New Revlon Nail Shades


In my opinion Revlon nail lacquers are one of the best around, and probably THE best that price bracket. Great quality, great choice and a great price... what’s not to love? They’ve really sharpened their pencil lately with a HUGE range of colours it’s difficult to choose just one... so I got three! Well, it would have been rude not to whilst they were on the 3 for 2 offer. That said, with nearly 50 shades in Boots it was tough enough whittling it down to three!

Charming

The first that caught my eye! The sun was shining that week and I really fancied a nice pastel shade. Plus, as I discovered when I did my Easter Nails, I’m short on pastel hues, so this was a welcome addition to the collection. The shade’s very opaque, with decent coverage from one coat, although I needed three coats for an even coverage because the formula is quite thin. The shade is a very pale lilac and in some lights it did remind me of when I painted my nails with tip-ex in school (We all did it, didn’t we?) Overall, a very pretty polish, that will look even better when I have some colour in my hands.

Bewitching

This one’s a really sophisticated shade. I don’t normally go for reds. I have a few but wear them very rarely, but this one’s special. It reminds me of a light claret and looks soooo flattering on my fingers. Again it was very opaque after one coat and after a second coat I was all done.


The finish is slightly glossy, dries very quickly and lasted around 4 days before the chips appeared. I could have patched them up but it was onto the next one...

Classy

This is the one I deliberated over the longest! It was between this and a pale blue, which I rejected on the grounds that it was too similar to Charming. I liked the look of it in the shop, a nice creamy peach, but in reality it’s very nude. I’d call it a nude peachy with a glossy finish. Yes it’s pretty and classy, but if I’m honest, a touch boring. It’s the sort of shade I’d imagine Kate Middleton would wear.... perhaps I should pass it on to the Duchess, not sure I’ll wear it again.
