Hi everyone! I was just ranting about the color green my post All Things Bright and Green only very recently. That’s where I also disclosed that I’m wearing a green shade on my nails from Revlon. Well today’s review will be about the Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel in the shade Lime Basil.
Revlon Parfumerie has been around for quite a long time now. But since I am not much into nail lacquers, I never really tried it until today. It was there in my subconscious for a long time and finally gave in to my temptations to experience a scented nail enamel. 🙂

My Overview of the Product :
Lime Basil is a gorgeous yet subdued shade of green. The hue is that of fresh foliage or the color reflected through dewdrops on pristine grass leaves. Oh, I tend to get little dreamy when I think of green. 😛 Nevertheless, I love the color. Coming to opacity, I needed a good two coats to give me the desired painted nails. The bottle looks classy with a cuboidal body and spherical matte black applicator. Quite a unique packaging, reminds me of chess pawns. Yeah, I was quite into the game once upon a time. 🙂 The applicator brush is good and makes for an easy application.
The nail paint dries on the nails fast, but still not fast enough. And on drying, it gives out such an amazing scent! The fragrance of Revlon Parfumerie in Lime Basil is just what you could imagine from the name. It is a whiff of fresh greens from incessant raining, with hints of citrusy. Overall the fragrance is awesome and a perfect match for the color. 🙂
The finish is super glossy and looks really pretty on the nails. The nail enamel stayed on me in tact for around 4 days, but on the 5th, I could see it wearing off the tips. Not chipping, but wearing and that too obvious only on close observation. The wearing stayed like that until on day 7 there was little chipping. The fragrance is quite strong initially, and though mows down gradually, it never fades off completely. I could always smell it on my nails and undeniably I love it. 🙂
The Final Verdict :
Well what? I love it people! The concept is very unique in itself. The color is awesome and the fragrance is equally amazing. I am just so much in love with Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel in Lime Basil. The shade name, color and the fragrance are so much in sync with each other. I am glad I went for this shade and love what it delivers. Only wish the color stayed on the nails for a little longer for the price we pay. That way I could also keep getting whiffs of its breathtaking fragrance for some time longer! 🙂
