ani-Beauty Review: Revlon French Nail Art Mix
I'll have to agree that one of the most luxurious indulgences in being the feminine sex is trying out adoring flocks, pretty little things and of course beauty treatments like spa, manicures and what's not. Saying so, all these can easily amount up to a hefty sum while putting yourself in a dilemma, but thank goodness for the little gems which can be spotted around if you look hard enough.
I was at J Cube's Watsons last weekend and something from Revlon caught my eye:
These pretty and exciting nail polishes from 'Revlon Nail Art French Mix' gave me a kick as I excitedly chose 2 bottles and hurriedly headed to the check out before I had any second thoughts. It retails at SG $13.90 each. Talk about impulse purchases, I'm an easy fellow to fall for them. And the 2 yummy colours of my choice are, 'Over The Moon' and 'Sweet Revenge'.

Reasons for choosing these two shades of 'Revlon Nail Art French Mix' are that these two tubes contained colours which are exciting and really bring out the overall 'oomph'. What's more, you can never go wrong with some pink on your nails.
Let me start with 'Revlon Nail Art French Mix' in 'Sweet Revenge'. I love the shade of purple for this as it really strong and just the right tone which I always wanted. Not too dull but neither is it obscenely bright, this shade of Purple even had a shimmering effect which never gets old.
A little problem when applying was that the texture is kind of streaky and may become a little messy when layering the tips just like those French Manicures but other than that, it's prefect. Even someone impatient like me managed to get it eventually. Well, almost, anyway.
Here's how it looks like after the second try. I believe a few more practices will just do the trick to achieving perfect French Manicures in fun colours!
The next tube of 'Revlon Nail Art French Mix' is my favorite of the two as the colours are so alluring and I couldn't have made a better choice back there in the store.
Here's the low down for 'Over The Moon', and that was how I felt after the application, literally!
I am in love with this mysterious shade of Green from 'Over The Moon' as it really stands out on my bare fingers and really eye-catching for any fun-filled occasion. The depth of this shade almost had a hypnotic effect on me as it calms down my ragged nerves and yet somewhat generates a haunting vibe. Note to self: apply when nervous or for any special occasion.
Even just after the first two layers, the sheen looks glossy and metallic.
When it comes to the lighter shade for 'Over The Moon', it conjured up the image of a sweet, innocent young girl paying dress up by her Mother's dressing table. This hue of pink is really light and a hint of glittery. I had to apply three coats before the colours start showing up on my nails prominently. This will definitely look better with the Green tips than on its own as it may seems a little too medicore.
Overall, I am pretty satisfied with 'Revlon Nail Art French Mix'. Although, I may still be far away from achieving the perfect DIY French Manicure, it has been a good experience for me and I enjoyed the process of trying them out. If you ask me if it's worth the money, I'd definetely say go for it as long as you like the shades. It's two for the price of one from how I see it!
Till next time, XOXO.
