Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel Swatches

I have four shades to show you: Beachy, Autumn Spice, Wintermint and Wild Violets.

My thoughts on the Parfumerie nail enamels: I must say, I am quite impressed! I thought it was a bit gimmicky when I first heard about these. I tried the scented glitter top coat in Grape Fizz a couple of years ago, and that one was okay, but nothing to cheer about. I was not expecting much from these new polishes. But I have to say, Revlon has changed my mind about how awesome scented nail polish can be.

Autumn Spice:



A rich cinnamon brown with bronze shimmer, Autumn Spice is THE fall drugstore nail color.  It glimmers at every angle, and application is easy peasy lemon squeezy. It covered my nails almost fully with one coat. Two coats took care of the rest. It smells like cinnamon in candle form.






Beachy is  standard yellow gold than leans a little orange in some lights. It’s metallic, but not as troublesome with brush strokes as one might think. Application was fairly easy with this one. Two coats are recommended.  I was surprised to find that it convincingly smelled like the beach! Salty like the ocean, and warm like the sand.







Wintermint is an icy bluish green color with chunky blue and silver glitter. This is a no-brainer shade for the holiday season. I would try for three coats. Between the glitter and the bare spots, allow the layers to dry before apply another coat. In most cases, a polish that needed three coats wouldn’t be worth the time to me, but Wintermint is so pretty on the nail that I can forgive it that one flaw. It smelled like Altoids at first, but the scent started to smell like pastel mints after a few minutes.



Wild Violets:



Inky purple with blue microshimmer, Wild Violets was stunning in the bottle but kinda “been there, polished that” on my nails. It’s a pretty dark purple shade, don’t get me wrong. But what I was expecting was more pizzazz. The blue microshimmer didn’t show up on my nails that well. It reminds me a lot of OPI Lincoln Park After Dark, except the famed LPAD is a true dark purple. WV is more violet due to the blue microshimmer. I feel like it’s just another vampy purple, nothing unique. The scent is sweet and floral, like actual violets.



Despite my disappointment with Wild Violet, I think the Parfumerie nail enamels are quite nice. I love the cute squarish bottles Revlon packaged them in (Revlon is making an effort, you guys!) and I think these would make cute stocking stuffers. I bought all four of these during a recent 40% off sale at Rite Aid.
