Oh Revlon Parfumerie Nail Polishes, I have longed for your arrival for so long. Why does the US get all these awesome drugstore products launches and Canada gets like… only half of them… and half a year later?!
The Revlon Parfumerie Nail Polishes, as the name suggests, are scented nail polishes. I picked up Italian Leather when I spotted these at Rexall. I picked the polish purely based on the shade – after all that’s the main point of nail polish no?
Italian Leather is a stunning dark olive green, with the finest golden shimmer in it. The formulation is superb, one coat is almost opaque, but I used two in the picture above. There’s no streakiness, the polish is not too thick or too thin, which makes it super easy to apply. It also dries super glossy too, so I didn’t use a top coat. The polish is still going strong on day 3 without a top coat – no chips, still shiny. Now onto the scent part…
I’m not sure how Italian Leather specifically smell like, but the scent to me smell like.. vanilla-scented-leather? The scent started to come through as the polish is drying (before that it smells like your regular polishes), and it was actually pretty strong in my opinion. I could smell it even when I’m just typing on my computer, but on 2nd day the scent fades away so I need to put my nails a couple inches from my face to smell it, and on day 3, there’s only a trace of the scent when I hold my nails really close to my nose.
And I almost forgot about the bottle. Look at that beaut! Doesn’t it look like those little fancy pretty french perfume bottle? L.U.R.V.
Overall I am very impressed with polish, and will definitely go back and pick up more shades! Have you tried any polishes from this line? And do you have any recommendation for what I should pick up next?
