This week saw my first foray into Revlon nail polishes. I don't know why I hadn't gone there before, as I'm a big fan of Revlon as a brand and love their makeup, but for some reason I had never thought to try out their nail-related offerings. However, while on the hunt for a dupe of Essie Mojito Madness, I stumbled across this beaut, which is called Posh (Shade 571). As well as this being a first for Revlon nails, it's also the first time I've welcomed such a shade to my collection. You'll often find me wearing mint and pastel greens, but emerald and forest greens were lacking in my collection until I saw the lovely Helen from The Lovecats Inc (if you don't already read her blog then get yourself over there after reading this post - Helen posts daily outfit posts and always has the most wonderful selection of beauty products to talk about - her hauls are second to none.) post an image on Instagram of various different green Essie nail polishes. It was a bit of a no-brainer really - I love emerald green, so why hadn't I thought about popping it on my nails?
I have to say, I'm really quite impressed with the formula of this nail polish. It goes on so smoothly without the merest hint of a streak, and it seems to dry pretty quickly too. (I used the Post Trauma Nail Treatment - also Revlon as a base coat, but we'll talk more about that one later.) In terms of chipping, the tips of my nails did need a bit of retouching after a couple of days, but I have to take responsibility for that one as I didn't use a top coat.
These polishes come it at £6.49, which is a pretty mid-range price, and considering how high-end I think the sturdy packaging looks I think it's pretty good. You get 14ml for your money, which is more than you would with some of the more expensive brands, which is another bonus.
Have you tried any of the Revlon nail polishes? Which are your favourites?
