Today I have a review on the new Revlon Parfumerie Nail polish in Wintermint that was just recently released. I picked mine up at Wal-Mart along with another exciting product, I will be reviewing later on this week.
First off the bottles are sleek and very adorable and they look like they are way more expensive than they really are. I picked my polishes up for $4.97 which isn’t that bad if consider that you have the possibility of smelling your nails later and possibly enjoy them!
The bottle contains 0.4 FL. OZ./11.7 mL of product and the collection has a wide variety of shades from spring colors such as pinks and lilacs to winter shades such as reds, metallic and a few with glitter like this polish.
Let’s talk about the perfume claim that these polishes have. The bottle says that once the polish dries the scent will appear. In the picture above I have two coats and YES! you can smell a faint wintergreen smell. The catch is that if you apply a topcoat the smell goes away. This may be a good/ bad thing for some of you. If you realized the scent you picked up is horrible but absolutely love the color this is great. If you are like me and were a bit excited to take a whiff of your nails and see if the smell was still there it’s very disappointing.
I want to touch a little on the texture of this particular nail polish after I applied a topcoat. Some of my nails are a bit more gritty to touch from the glitter. It looks like the topcoat soaked right through without adding that smooth shiny layer. This maybe one of the reason why my nails don’t smell.
The removal process of this nail polish was actually not that time consuming. I felt it came off better than my O.P.I and Revlon glitters. You will still need about 10 minutes to remove this polish.
If you have tried these out let me know if there is a topcoat that would let the polish on my nails breath, perhaps that is the true key to smelling these nail polishes!?
Are you a fan of the idea of these nail polishes?
