Product Description

Revlon Nail Enamel delivers gorgeous smooth, chip-resistant color to nails.

Actual Product Pic:

Pigmentation & Color:

This is the perfect chili red color! :D This polish is quite pigmented - 1 coat is opaque enough to cover your nails, but 2 coats will just give you that amazing bold red color that not everyone can carry off (yours truly included!)!

This is me wearing one coat:

Texture & Scent:
The formulation for this polish is BEAUTIFUL! It's just liquid enough to ensure even application, and it dries streak free! It dries pretty quickly too, which is great! :D

This one smells just like nail polish!! lol!! :P


This nail polish comes in a glass bottle with the usual brush applicator attached to the cap! The brush is just the right size for the perfect application:

Time Test:
This polish lasted more than 2 weeks on my toes without so much of a chip! Amazing!! :D

Price & Availability:
This nail polish costs RM19.90, and should be available at all Revlon displayers at Watsons / Guardian / Your local supermarket! :D

My $0.02:

I've been lemming for this nail color ever since i saw it on Paris' blog! It took awhile before it arrived on our little island though, but I guess the wait is worth it because this is just the most gorgeous red ever! It's not for the faint of heart though - the color is just so striking! I've only worn it out on my fingernails ONCE! lol! :D

I'm also in love with the lovely texture - it's runny yet it goes on evenly!! It also doesn't dry out in the bottle as quickly as some of the other polishes in my stash - I've had my bottle open for coming to 8 months already, but the texture's still as good as the day i opened it! :D

Here's another picture of it on my toes:

Ignore Cookie at the back... she wants to be part of the picture too!! :P And oh, i didn't realise how messy my application is until i reviewed the pictures!! It looks better in real life?? :P

I just simply can't think of anything i didn't like about this nail polish! I will definitely repurchase when i run out (unlikely) or when this one dries up! :D

Here's what the other girls think about this red hot baby!
