Revlon nail polish swatch spam. Click through for full details:



I hope you have your Vera Bradley and Lily Pulitzer ready ladies, because I have kelly green perfection to share with you today; Revlon’s Posh.  I remember picking up this color a year or two ago when it was on a limited edition Revlon display, but it has since become part of the nail lacquer core collection. 


Revlon’s Posh is a vivid medium green creme that is super bright without being neon.  The application was great, which isn’t always the case with greens.  I’m a big fan of the Revlon formula and brush, it’s my favorite drugstore brand.  I used two coats for full coverage.  The first coat was  bit patchy, but it evened out nicely and with no visible nail line.  Even though this polish is a creme, it has a squishy jelly-like quality to it.

Revlon’s Posh is a fun pop of color, it’s preppy and perfect for spring/summer - it’s like wearing Kate Spade or J. Crew on your nails.

Other products used:

  • Base coat: Revlon ColorStay Gel-Smooth Base Coat
  • Top coat: Seche Vite

This review features product(s) purchased by myself for review.


llamasqua’s Blizzard nail polish. It costs £14.50 from the Illamasqua website.

Blizzard is described as a Snow glitter nail finish.

It’s a chunky glitter top coat. The glitter particulates aren’t shiny at all, more of a satin finish. There’s two distinct sizes of them which does make it look like snow. If you’re not great at nail art, these are quite good for helping you get there.
Since the snow is not so dense it doesn’t have the staying power of glitter polish. It however as much of a pain to remove.

The brush in the bottle is a little thin for my liking, I prefer paddle brushes but that’s a minor thing. 

I like it and think it would look stunning on a graduated blue nail rather than the choice I made here. Very much worth it.



I’ve finally made another Swatch Comparison Sunday post! Today I compared two beautiful neon polishes - 

China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy and Island Girl Diamond Head Breeze
