Today’s photos of Revlon’s limited edition summer collection of scented nail polish are brought to you by guest swatcher extraordinaire Soaper1.
I’m going to have a love/hate relationship with this polish. Beach is from Revlon’s summer collection of scented polishes — there are 8 in all, and the only one I skipped was Ocean Breeze.
I love the color of Beach. It’s a weird chartreuse and I love it. The formula is pretty thin and sheer; what you’re seeing in the picture is 5 coats. Despite how thin it is, it was easy to control. Since it’s frosty, I was worried about brushstrokes, but this morning the brushstrokes were barely visible. I got a little bubbling, which is to be expected with so many layers of polish. It doesn’t seem as shiny after a day, but a coat of Barielle manicure extender would fix that.
Beach smells like jasmine (each color has a different scent, which you can’t smell until the polish is dry). Seems like most beach fragrances are heavy on jasmine… which is weird because I don’t ever remember seeing jasmine at the beach. The fragrance also reminds me of a hairspray that I used years ago, but I can’t remember what it was called.
Soaper1 also kicked her manicure up a notch by “konading;” stamping a second color (in a pattern) over her base color.
I know what she means about Revlon polishes — I dislike their thin formula and too-long, unwieldy brush. But jasmine-scented nail polish is awfully tempting.
