Grossest nail polish colour ever?

Revlon Scented Nail Enamel in Beech (310)
I saw this polish and figured it could actually be really nice on. I know the colour is a bit, er, unusual? But I reckoned it could look pretty cool and eye catching when it was applied. Which is the wrongest (that is so a word! :p) I’ve been in a long time…

I’m not sure what I dislike most; the awful finish, cheap perfume scent it leaves behind – supposedly a selling point of this – or the colour. After much consideration I think the award goes to the colour for being so revolting that it reminds me of the pee of someone who is seriously dehydrated. Bleurgh! Ick! and EEEWWWW!! In equal measures :)

I don't think i like it either. Try the matt top coat like the above comment, it could be interesting x

I have got a nail polish in this colour or something very close to this and.. yes, thats really nice but definitely not for everyday wearing :)

Danielle Rose said...

Aww, i like it. Honestly i think its abit brash on its own but i think that it would look nice with a crackle coat or some stamping ! xxx

O gosh that is awful, thank you for warning me of this awful colour! xx

Wow that's quite a reaction... I have to admit that I wouldn't have even given it a second look on the shelf. Yellow fingernails really don't appeal.

Ech, definitely not the best. It'd probably only look good if you wore something that exactly matched white it.

I love this color =/ I'm literally wearing it right now, with a Green sparlke polish on my index finger.
I think it just needs some getting used too ..

Haha, awesome review! I have this and I only use it for nail art. It is ok in little doses, but painted on it's own it is pretty yucky! I couldn't even describe the smell, it really is a cheap perfume smell to me. Someone told me it was meant to be sunscreen, but I wouldn't use a sunscreen that smelt like that! :P

thanks for the tips all - it never even occurred to me to try this with the shatter polish by nails inc or barry m!

Kattatonic Fierceology feel free to email me you address and I'll send this to you... I'd rather someone got some use out of it :)
