When I was growing up, the first nail polish brand I ever encountered was Revlon Nail Enamel. It was a staple in my mom’s makeup vanity when I was a child, and Revlon Red was one of the first nail polish colours I bought with my allowance as a preteen. As a teenager, my “go-to’s” were Toast of New York and Blackberry.
It’s a polish that promises to provide “gorgeous smooth, chip-resistant colour to nails” and last up to 10 days when used with the Revlon Base and Top coat. It also boasts an “exclusive silk-protein shield [that] works to instantly help even out the surface of the nail while rising above colour to automatically smooth away bubbles, streaks and brush marks.” Big claims – so I put them to the test with a new shade.
When trying out 440 Siren, a bold summery orange shade, I loved how quickly it dried between each of the two coats I had applied, and that there were no brush streaks. It also lasted almost 10 days. I received many compliments on how nice the colour looked, and it lasted through housework and visual re-merchandising at my day job. My nails were smooth and didn’t chip within those days.
The colour is perfect for the spring and summer, and can even be worn throughout the year when you want that pop of colour on your nails and toes. Revlon’s classic polish is available in 64 shades, and retails around $5.00 so it’s a great bargain for a great quality product!
