Today I have a quick post reviewing Revlon's Mint Gelato, which is part of their new Limited Edition Scented Treats collection that's out now at drugstores. When I first spotted this pretty at Walgreens, le boyfriend convinced me I didn't need it (for shame!), so I left it behind. Finally, yesterday I went to buy something else (on my own) and realized why I was so drawn to it...it's a jelly!! I'm totally on a jelly trip right now. So much so that I'm going to buy more glitters so I can do sandwiches. Mmm jelly sandwiches.
Mint Gelato is, to my eyes, a greener turquoise, similar to For Audrey and the likes but dustier and less blue. I don't know, I'm really no good at describing polish colors, just look at the pictures!
|Ignore the little scratch, my fault :(|
Formula was pretty good! You're seeing three coats without top coat so it was very shiny and pretty much opaque unless you hold your fingers to the sun, but really, who does that? Then I did some stamping with the zebra pattern from my Bundle Monster plates. I kind of can't believe it's my first time using this image when it's one of the more popular ones. I stamped with Sally Hansen Whirlwind White and I also added a coat of Essie As Gold as It Gets as an accent on my ring finger.
Another note about the formula, it dried quicker than I expected. Usually jellies with 3 coats take forever but I had good results with this. I was still uber careful for a while just in case it wasn't thoroughly dry but I had not dents or the like. The only thing I don't love about the polish is that it's scented. The scent itself is not displeasing (big word huh? :P), but it is distracting while polishing. I also used the phone a lot today so I was sick of the smell after a while, but it does fade away so just make sure to do the scratch and sniff at the store in case you hate it.
So that's pretty much it... Happy hump day! ;)
