Nailed It! Summer Nails

Summer Nails 2

Revlon Brilliant Strength Nail Enamel, BOGO at Walgreens for $12

Quick Take – so cute!

(Sorry that I’ve been away for so long, ladies! Life happened, but I’m back!)

My local Walgreens is my kryptonite, my achilles’ heel. (Ok, so I do live in a small town with no Sephora or mall – what do you expect?!). I go in telling myself I’m only buying mouthwash and Q-tips, and I come out with so much more. I saw these new Brilliant Strength polishes from Revlon and I just couldn’t pass them up. They’re so cute/summery/bright – like candy!

I wanted to try them both, so I painted my ring fingers “Provoke” (aka Creamy Cantaloupe – THE perfect coral!) and the rest “Enamor” (aka Neon Bubblegum). I love Revlon’s bottle design and brush – the shape of the wide brush perfectly nudges against my cuticle for a clean line, and the neck is long enough to provide good control (I gushed about it before here). It’s enough to make me forgive some shortcomings – like how on a few nails these polishes needed three coats to reach full opacity.

I used OPI Chip Skip as a prep for the nail, then Essie Rock Solid as a base coat, topping it off with Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. After reading about these polishes on Revlon’s website, next time I’m going to try them alone – supposedly they’ve got a built-in protective base and top coat.

I just love these colors for summer! And seriously, Provoke is the perfect orange-coral – just enough pink and a little more orange. Enamor is really cute too, and would make for a great bright pedicure. Do you gravitate towards bright nail polish for summer?

    I wondered if you were ever going to post again :) I’m also a Walgreens addict and usually the youngest person in there. Love the coral too!

    I know I know!! I’m back! 😉 Glad to know I’m not alone with my Walgreens habit. I’ve heard CVS is way better, but I think they’re more of an East Coast thing…
