Review: Revlon Parfumerie™ Scented Nail Enamel - Autumn Spice16:20
I've wanted a shimmery brown nail polish for so long. I love brown in any form, may it be makeup, nail polish or clothes. It's hard to find brown nail polish with warm shimmer in it and this Revlon's one is also scented which is a plus. I didn't know what warm spice would smell like, but it's a perfect fall scent.
It comes in a square glass bottle with a sphere black plastic top. I don't see it as a perfume bottle per se, but it could be in a way. It's cute and I'm not bothered by sphere top. I still find it big enough to hold in my fingers and I don't have a problem with application, but I hear some do.
It has a straight cut brush, but it's thinner than most. Application is still pretty much normal, because the brush wideness as you push it down. This brush might be amazing for those with small nails.
In the bottle is 11.7 ml of product and the regular price is 6.99€, but I got it on sale for 3.49€ on Click2Chic.
Formula is not too thick and not too thin. In my opinion, it's just perfect. You can apply one thicker coat and it will cover the entire nail, but I prefer to apply two coats. It dries really quick for a regular nail polish.
As soon as it dries up, it starts to release the scent. The scent reminds me of gingerbread cookies with some added spices, among which I detects cinnamon. It is in fact spicy and autumnal. I get cookie cravings whenever I smell it. Scent lasts for a really long time. The first day the scent is really strong and might be too strong for those who are sensitive to scents. I could smell it whenever I had my nails in front of my mouth or nose. As the days go by, the scent wears off. It still smelled on the fourth day, but it was a really faint scent. Even if your apply top coat on top, it still smells.
Autumn Spice shade has the most beautiful warm chocolate brown base. In it is copper gold shimmer and the nail polish gives off a redish copper sheen. It's epitome of fall in a bottle. I love how rich and warm this shade is. Shimmer in it gives it a slight grip on the nails, but don't actually looks 3D. I always apply top coat on top, but you can go without it just as well.
It's really long lasting. I've had it on my nails for four days with minimal chipping only on the tips of nails. You don't even need top coat, because it lasts just as well on its own. I have some regular Revlon nail polishes and I find them all pretty long lasting. I guess Revlon knows their nail polish formulas.
Now I'm kind of curious how other scents from this line smell. I am so happy that I finally got this shade, because it has been on my wish list for a while. The scent is very autumnal. Nail polish has good formula and it lasts on my nails for a long time. Shade Warm Spice is the most gorgeous warm brown. I am very pleased with it and would definitely recommend you to try it, if you like autumnal shades and scents.
