Revlon Nail Enamel 725 Provocative

Revlon Nail Enamel Provocative swatch

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?

Revlon Nail Enamel 725 Provocative

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.

Revlon Nail Enamel Provocative comparison

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?
