Hi everyone! The rains in my city seem to have ceased. Now the weather is pretty warm with the sun blazing through a major part of the day. The sunshine seems pretty cheery though, after the gloomy weather that rains left behind. And I found the perfect shade to flaunt on my nails at this time. If green made my day during the rains (read All Things Bright and Green), the best color to celebrate the sun God is yellow for sure! I had been wearing the Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel in the shade Sunlit Grass entire last week, and it feels so much in sync with the time of the year. 🙂 Before this I was sporting the shade Lime Basil from the same range, and talked about it here.

My Overview of the Product :
The packaging of the Revlon Parfumerie nail enamels remind me a lot of chess pawns, mostly because of the matte black, almost-spherical applicator head. 🙂 The package as a whole feels sturdy and sits well owing to its wider base. I noticed this because I’m apprehensive of spilling nail paints with my somewhat clumsy movements while applying them. 😛 The color Sunlit Grass is a beautiful, bright yellow that seems exuberant and cheerful. I love the shade. But compared to Lime Basil, this applies a little streaky and took me 3 coats to give it the desired opacity. The applicator brush though makes for an easy application. It dries quick enough on the nails and gives a glossy finish which looks great. 🙂
Now coming to fragrance, Sunlit Grass has a strong, tangy smell with subtle floral hints. The fragrance may be overwhelming for sensitive noses, but I totally love it! The fragrance reminds you of freshness, of waking up amidst fruit orchards on a bright summer morning. 🙂 A whiff at my nails, and I feel so good. 🙂 The fragrance actually sets off a series of imagery that run wild in my head, where there are endless meadows of mustard, lemons, and sunflowers and daffodils and tulips (I haven’t smelled either of these flowers, but it’s only in my imagination 😀 ), and I am transported to a virtual world of yellow for the next few seconds. Sometimes the fragrance of a product can so change your perception about it, isn’t it? 🙂
The nail paint stays on without wearing and chipping for a good 5 days without a top coat. But then I did have 3 coats of it on my nails. The fragrance isn’t as strong on the later days as when freshly applied, but never completely fades away. Good for me!
The Final Verdict :
Since Revlon Parfumerie is a range of scented nail paints, so fragrance of the product is just as important as its color and staying power. In the fragrance aspect, Sunlit Grass is an absolute love for me. The color is a winner too. Only if it applied opaque in the standard 2 coats or stayed longer could it have been a 5 on 5. But I would give it a good score solely because it aces the major two aspects – the color and the fragrance. Overall, Sunlit Grass is a stunning summer shade and if you want to paint your nails in a lacquer that is out of the box, you could always give this a try. 🙂
My Rating : 4.75/5
