Revlon One Perfect Coral Nail Enamel - Review

One Perfect Coral?
That is a pretty big claim from Revlon wouldn't you agree?
On the whole I really rate Revlon nail polishes and a shade that cheekily suggests it could be the "one"
in the coral family should be purchased instantly...least that is how I justified it to myself haha!

Revlon polishes are not the cheapest nail shades on the UK high street but the shade range is extensive,
Revlon is easy to source and for your cash you get a sizeable amount of polish (14ml) with a good brush.
If £6.49 is a little too pricey (hey we all have light cash flow months) then if you wait a season or two
Revlon polishes always pop up on bargain websites for under £3, on eBay for slashed prices
and if you are really luck the local pound shop!

So is One Perfect Coral the perfect Coral?
In a, well at least for my personal taste requirements anyway.
Coral is best described as a mix of orange and red and while One Perfect Coral does tick this
box, it leans more Red than Orange and I prefer the reverse effect from my Coral's.
Give me a great predominately Orange based Coral and I am one happy bunny!
One Perfect Coral is a pretty enough shade, I deem it a summer red and it is somewhat similar
to a super famous Revlon shade - Fire and Ice which can be tricky to source.

The formula is what I have come to expect from Revlon,
it applies well and evenly but does take a little while to dry.
All my swatch photos are after two coats.

Revlon One Perfect Coral is part of Revlon's Summer 2012 collection
and costs £6.49/14ml and is available from most Revlon retailers such as Boots and Superdrug.

Nail Polish Disclaimer - I no longer comment on the wear time as we all apply polishes differently (top/base coats etc) and as I change my polish almost daily sometimes several times a day due to swatching purposes I do not feel that I can fairly comment on wear time.

  1. I haven't bought a Revlon polish in sooo long :( I don't know why!! This color makes me want to go hunting for some good Revlons!!

    1. Now is a great time to do it :) so many great shades to be had :)

  2. So many people find Revlon polishes in pound shops but i never do! definitely going to try ebay :)

  3. i also have to recommend fragrance direct for cheap revlon nail polishes too, i think theyre about £1.50 on there!

  4. actually really like the look of this. it'd make me look too pale though, maybe if i was more tanned!

  5. This is my all-time favourite nail polish!
    I bought it years ago and they stopped selling it, so over the moon it's back! x

  6. I don't think I've ever bought a Revlon nail varnish full price, which is a bit cheeky i suppose :) What is it you don't like about these nail varnishes?

  7. Oh how I love a coral cosmetic! This a lovely colour, really vibrant and such a good finish :-)
