Review: Revlon Nail Polish - Kiss Me Coral

I recently purchased a Revlon nailpolish called Kiss Me Coral.  The colour is a beautiful orangey-coral colour with a shimmery finish.  There is no chunky glitter but there is a very nice gold/pink sheen to it.  This is one of those colours that look great with a tan and really bring out any colour that you do have.  As you can see from the picture above the colour can flash more pink, or as the following picture shows it can flash more orange/coral.

Overall, I found the application to be very sheer.  I own a few Revlon polishes and I have never had any problem with them but I found that Kiss Me Coral required three coats to get an opaque finish whereas the other Revlon polishes that I own are fine after only two.  The following is a picture comparing the consistency of different Revlon polishes. 

For reference the other two colours are Emerald City, a matte suede finish polish and Oh My Magenta, a magenta polish with a silver/blue sheen similar to the gold/pink sheen of Kiss Me Coral.

As for wear I can't really comment on it.  My job requires me to work with my hands a lot and regardless of brand, top coat or base coat most polishes start to chip on me after only a day or two.  However, I have found that Revlon polishes do wear very well.  Overall, I am happy with this polish even with the sheer application, I would give this polish a B-.


  1. I'm wearing a shimmery coral on my nails too....I think it looks great for spring and into summer! I've been getting lots of compliments :D

    also i'm looking forward to your knitting posts! i've always wanted to do a bit of knitting but i never got around to learning how!


  2. Yes, I think I'll be getting a lot of wear out of this polish over the next couple months.

    Thanks! I'll probably have another knitting post coming up soon, just finished off a really fun scarf for a friend's birthday present.

  3. Thanks for these swatches - I just found this via google as I was looking at the coral one today but wasn't sure. I'll be heading back to buy I think! Cheers :)

  4. You're welcome :) Glad I could help with your purchase decision, it really is a great colour for the summer.
