I will admit like most I was utterly enamoured by the sweeter than sweet packaging of the Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel and somewhat ignored the fact that I do tend to sport gel nails 99.9% of the time. The bottle style has somewhat been based on apothecary perfume bottles and sure stand out amongst the other nail polish bottles out there. Not that I'm encouraging you to purchase something purely based on packaging you understand.
To the best of my knowledge the Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel line contains 20 shades all of which are split into various scent groups such as fresh, fruit and floral as well as sweet and spicy. My local Boots store is pretty small so only a handful of shades were stocked. I bought Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel in Ginger Melon as it was bright, girlie and perfect for the summer. I will level with you and say that it was bought with flip flops and the beach in mind, I will of course spare you the photos of my tootsies! Revlon Ginger Melon is a bright but not neon pink I personally call this type of shade a tropical pink and always reach for this type colour when tanned.
As you may be aware the Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel are scented and the Ginger Melon fragrance is rather fruity. Although called Ginger Melon it is not at all spicy in scent but rather it reminds me of Watermelon Jolly Rancher sweets and is much stronger than I imagined. Okay don't judge but I can smell it off my feet without actually bending over and sniffing my toes. Lord I must come across so bizarre but when walking around my flat I am followed around all day with a sweet, sugary fragrance...not that I am complaining. Some have reported that when on their finger nails the scent fades really quickly but I imagine that is because we wash our hands much more frequently, I've had this on my toes for three days and it is still subtly scented after four showers. Pretty impressive.
Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel in Ginger Melon is a crème finish polish that is on the sheer side in my opinion. On my toes I am happy with two coats as lets be honest no-one really pays all that much to toes (at least I hope) but for the finger nails you may feel the need for three coats to ensure it is fully opaque. If applied in thin coats it dries quickly and evenly. I want to quickly mention that the brush is a great size and shape, it fans out to coat each nail easily and due to the shape of the cap it is really easy to grip too.
All in all the Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel collection is too sweet to pass up on and I'm sure there will be at least one shade for every taste. Find the full collection via Boots - link for £6.49/11.7ml each.
