My Thoughts: I remember the days back when I was a kid when I'd put on scented nail polish and I thought I was Little Miss Hot Stuff. Well, let's just say this has a touch of nostalgia for my youth while being a totally sophisticated grown up way to paint my nails.
I love the formula of the three colors above that I've tried above. They are the only shades I've purchased, but I definitely would try more. They go on richly pigmented and very creamy, and they don't streak. I'd recommend two coats though to get a perfectly even nail.
My favorite is the yellow, Sunlit Grass. It's the perfect shade of yellow for my fair skin that doesn't look too acidic or jaundiced. It's a beautiful warm yellow that instantly makes me think spring. And despite the name, it doesn't have any green tones to it at all.
The pink, African Tea Rose, is not as pigmented in one coat as the other two, but it's still a gorgeous shade. It was the first color I was drawn to and the first that I purchased. There's a hint of blue to the shade without getting too far into the purple range, so I think it would compliment both cool toned skins as well as warm toned skins. It's the perfect pink for summer time.
The red, China Flowers, is a beautiful warm red without getting too much into the coral range. It's a true red without the cherry undertones of darker or brighter reds.
The nail polish scents are light, not overpowering at all, and it's really unique how the smell comes out as the polish dries. I wish it lasted longer than a day, but of course it's not really plausible. The finish of the polish is a smooth creamy finish with no shimmer on any of these three colors. Although, in the stores I've seen shades with some beautiful shimmers. There's a huge range of colors, too!
Even the packaging is awesome on these. I love the little glass bottles with the round black tops. Something about them is just feminine to me and appeals to my inner girl. I like displaying them in my bathroom rather than hiding them under the counter in a shoebox. They stand out from the endless sea of uninteresting bottles of nail polish. Almost like a perfume bottle rather than nail polish. Or maybe I'm just seeing things? Am I the only one who gets that vibe from these? I mean the "Parfumerie" isn't just an allusion to the smell, right?
Final Verdict: LOVE! These are the first three, and I can't wait to get some more when Ulta does some kind of Buy One, Get One sort of sale on Revlon products.
