Revlon Scented Nail Enamel Mad About Mango

Guest Review by Priya R.


Product Description:                                                                                        

Try the season’s coolest shades and enjoy each fresh, fruity fragrance – scented when dry!

Revlon’s exclusive silk-protein shield works to instantly help even out the surface of the nail while rising above color to automatically smooth away bubbles, streaks and brush marks. UV absorbers protect color – ensuring it won’t fade during wear.

My Views:

Revlon’s recent launch is the “Scented Parfume” Nail Enamels, now why would anyone buy a nail polish based on the criteria being scented, isn’t it? I pick up my nail paints based on color options but perfumed nail paint? Not really!! Anyways, this range of the nail enamels have some gorgeous shades to offer and I fell for this lovely shade called “Mad About Mango”, which is a coral orange crème shade and it is absolutely stunning vibrant color. Though I think this color will be more apt for summer/spring time but I still got it as I do not really like to follow the so called “winter trend”.

The formulation of this nail polish was average, it did spread on easily with 3 swipes on the nails but the finish was not even across the surface and it was a bit streaky too while applying. I needed two coats for the semi-opaque finish, though I could have gone for third coat but it makes the appearance even streakier so I decided to go with two coats only. The drying time between the coats was normal. For me, it started to chip in 3 days time but a top coat will definitely increase the wear time. The final result was semi-glossy finish which did not fade with days. Now the interesting part, the “scented” perfume smell – yes it did give a fruity mango smell which faded with the passing days.

 Rating : B-

Price: Rs 150/-

Recommendation: Revlon Scented Parfume Nail Enamel – Mad About Mango is a lovely summer –y crème orange shade but yes you can wear it in other weathers too (there are no such rules!) but the formula was not so great – it was streaky and did not give even application on the nails. And most importantly it is a unique nail polish that is scented (I still wonder why you need a scented nail polish!). If you want to try out for “scented” part then go for it otherwise it is an ok product for the premium price.

Shade looks nice but having a scented nail polish does sound a bit silly. Thanks for the review, now I know I’m avoiding it!
