Revlon Nail Enamels £1 Each: Available From Fragrance Direct Here

These 'Nail Enamels' by Revlon have got to be some of my favourite nail polishes. They have cute names, the bottles are a good size and there are loads of amazing shades. At £6.49 each they might not the cheapest at full price, but when you can find them for £1 you really can't go wrong. I'd say £1 was a pretty good price for any nail varnish these days, let alone ones from Revlon (who as we all know, love to charge at least a couple of quid more for their products than similar brands do!) Here are the seven I currently own and love.

Black Lingerie is the perfect opaque black. Not just for teenage goths, I think black really is a nail polish collection staple. I use this most for adding detail to nail art designs, but I've also used it for a caviar nail manicure and as a base for different glitters. Sweet Tart and Charismatic are great summer shades, I love that Charismatic is full of fine shimmer which is a bit different to the other corals I own and makes it look almost metallic. Blue Lagoon and Minted are two of my favourites at the moment, I mentioned in my last Essie haul that blue doesn't always look right against my pasty pink skintone but with lighter shades like this I find they're way more wearable and actually look quite nice. Every spring and summer I think most of us go on the search for the perfect mint polish and Minted could quite possibly be it; I love that this isn't too 'spring green' like some 'mint' polishes can be. For reference it's lighter than Barry M's Mint Green, but not quite as light as Essie Mint Candy Apple which lets face it the ultimate mint green to beat. Popular and Stunning are gorgeous glitters; Stunning is my most worn top coat, if you caught my last nail post I've been wearing it a lot with Essie's 'Bond With Whomever'- a match made in nail varnish heaven!

The formula is creamy and opaque in two coats, and the glitters have plenty of glitter particles so you're not having to blob loads of it onto your nail to achieve that sparkly amazingness. I'd say the wear time was about average, they last at least three days on me (which is pretty good, seeing as judging by the tip wear on most polishes I must throw my hands around like a lunatic). I picked up a few of these from Fragrance Direct and the others I found in Poundland, you can also get them quite cheaply on eBay.

Have you ever tried Revlon Nail Enamels? What's your favourite shade?

  7. I have a few of the Revlon glitter polishes, and I bought my mom a set of 10 Revlon polishes but have yet to try them out. You chose amazing colors! I love every single polish you bought!

  9. Great price! It's strange because I very rarely get Revlon nail polishes. It's not that I have anything against them, it's just that other brands usually have better prices or shades... Xx

  16. Of the shades you picked up I definitely prefer 'Stunning'. I like applying something like this over pretty much all my nail polishes in the winter :) I love fragrance direct for bargains, I usually stick with Essie but next time I'll be sure to have a gand at the revlon ones xx

  20. I always get these for a pound too! Cheaper than what I would normally pay for Barry M but the price in Boots etc is just too expensive for a nail polish, great quality for £1! xxx
