The Revlon Parfumerie polishes are a death-knell to somebody (like myself) who is drawn to unusual packaging. Let's face it...these little vintage bottles are just adorable. And scented on top of that? Here's my money. But a word of caution: do NOT take a whiff of the polish whilst in the store. You really don't want somebody to find you passed out in the Wal-Mart cosmetics department...I mean, you just saw somebody else like that over in the Doritos aisle, and you told yourself you'd never be THAT person.
I will go ahead and tell you that I used 3 coats for both polishes. I was having a fearsome struggle with Mr. Vaneli. That's my new cosmopolitan name for my ever-present visible nail line. I think it makes him sound less annoying. :) The formula of these 2 cremes was thin but wonderfully easy to control...I love them both. And the tiny little brush? It's perfect for my toddler-sized nails. :)
Now that I've gotten all that out of the way...tell me what you think of Ginger Melon!
And the scent...well, it's not melon. And it's not ginger. It's more like a vague fruit. Let's call it "Generic Melon." :) It's a pleasant scent but a touch on the sweet side.
The color of Lime Basil is a bit bluer than the photos show...for some reason, the color was correct until I uploaded the pics onto here! :/ It's really pretty. It could be either a Christmas green or a summer green. I love it.
Lime Basil is another very shiny polish. And, like Ginger Melon, it dried to a slightly different color on my nails. Maybe the scent gives these a split personality? :) Uh oh...more indecisiveness!!
Now for the scent of Lime Basil...the verdict is in: Guilty of being delicious!! It's fresh and citrus and does indeed smell faintly of basil. You will definitely keep sniffing your hands with this one. Don't do it too conspicuously though...your co-workers might think you ate fried chicken for lunch and then didn't wash your hands afterwards.
Did you pick up any of the Revlon Perfumerie polishes? I can't say enough good about these two! And I did want to add that if you haven't snagged any of these yet, go check out Jessica's comprehensive collection reviews of the entire Parfumerie line at Be Happy and Buy Polish. She spells it all out and did a super job...BUT she doesn't like Lime Basil, LOL!! Oh well! :P
Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day! <3
