If you are to buy just one nail polish this season, I think this is it, guys. Do you need a quick pick-me-up? Get Revlon Nail Enamel Provocative.
I will try and harp less on my "orange obsession" after this. I promise. (Wait, I just bought a perfectly matching lip color for Provocative. So maybe one more time..)
Anyway, isn't this just gorgeous?
The classic Revlon Nail Enamel is probably the only drugstore nail polish range I buy on a regular basis. To me, they seem considerably better than all other drugstore offerings if not comparable to higher-ends. If I remember it correctly, Revlon actually was the first brand who got a big-3-free formula right when O.P.I. was still struggling with it. I have longer nail beds, so the slender tapered brush works for me rather perfectly. Revlon does offers a wider paddle shaped brush for their gel polishes, though. (What I really want to say is, "Don't you dare to touch this classic brush, Revlon.")
I usually have no issue with Revlon formula and nothing really chips on me, but I find Provocative applies and wears exceptionally well. It covers flawlessly with two coats but the hint of translucency of gel-creme finish is still there. Absolutely stunning.
I have pulled out other orange-y nail polishes of mine for comparison here.
Butter London Ladybird (reviewed) is very similar in finish but it is a bit more red where Provocative is the other way around.
Ravishing is more of a coral with an opaque retro finish, which is a one-coater and also stunning on the nails.
Revlon Nail Enamel Provocative is definitely comparable to a juicy high-end orange like Yves Saint Laurent Nail Lacquer Orange Fusion. I hope Revlon does not discontinue this gorgeous shade because I plan to repurchase.
Any cheap thrill for you lately?
