Goodness me. I was ambling through my local Boots and the Revlon Nail Polish stand has been completely updated with new collections and a larger collection of Parfumerie (20 shades). I also don’t think I have ever seen collections that have come out in the US come out so quickly in the UK.
First up, the new Leather and Tweed collection. Three textured shades, oh Downtown you sexy purple you will be mine come pay day, and a set of three bar glitter toppers.
Sorry its a bit blurry, the shelves are very close together!
Then as you see below, the new Chrome Collection tied in with the new Spiderman movie, is now available too. LOVE the lids!
THEN!! MORE REVLON!! This time the Sun Candy range which I saw in the US before Xmas. Only six shades here, instead of the 10 available in the US. You’ve seen Lava Flame here.
Gosh, I really don’t know where to start! Loving the chromes. Loving the purple texture from the Leather and Tweed collection. Really love the Sun Candy collection. Plus we’ve only just got in the Parfumerie collection. What is a girl to do?? What will you be picking up?

Final polish from my trip to the US *sniff* but as we know, all good things must come to an end.
This is one of the newer double ended Revlon polishes, from a line called Sun Candy. I am a bit of a sucker for these types of polishes as some of you may well know from previous posts! Anyway, this little beauty is called Lava Flame and she is pretty!
Wow, shiny, flakie, glittery goodness. What a lovely polish. What you see above is three thin coats of base colour, over a base of G&G Stuck on Blu! followed by one coat of the glitter topper and sealed in with a coat of G&G HK Girl. It is more sparkly and eye catching than it looks.
The base colour is a very orange leaning bright coral. Its a great colour. Formula drag a bit. But its worth it. There is a touch of visible nail line, again something I can live with. The topped is made up of iridescent pieces in a sheer orange base. The flakes build up well on the nail and one coat is certainly enough. It does look a little bit like dancing flames, but only a little bit.
Hope we get these in the UK at some point! LAST MIN UPDATE – Yesterday British Beauty Blogger posted about these very polishes. Due into Boots any day now! Hurrah!
As promised, here are my purchases from my recent trip to the US. We had a wonderful time, lots of things to see and do and I got to visit my first Harmon’s – very exciting! First up, some pics of the ranges I was hoping to see. First up, Revlon Parfumerie. I just love these. Then, more Revlon. With the new Matte effects and Sun Candy ranges. Followed by new Wet N Wild megarocks! And now my purchases…..I’m going to add links to other blogs, in particular Nouveau Cheap, so that you can see the full range. These are all US polishes and for Europe/UK ladies, you either need a trip to the US, a swap buddy or a look on eBay to get your hands on these.
These are the Color Shows I picked up, from the top Beaming Blue, Crushed Crimson and Amethyst Couture from the larger US Brocades range, beneath them Styled Out from the Denim Range and Dotty from the US Polka Dots range. Here we have my first new Covergirl polish in 315 Timless Rubies, Sally Hansen Sugar Shimmer in Cinny Sweet (see the Fall 2013 range here), Wet N Wild megarocks in Slap the Bass and Milani Neon in Awesome Orange. No judging… I’m still not done… L’Oreal in Hidden Gems and I Like it Chunky from the Gold Dust collection. More Sally Hansen goodies now, from the top right Fa-La-La-Lavender (Holiday 2013), Satin Glam in Silk Onyx and Sun Sheen (rest of the range here), Insta-Dry in Chop Chop Copper (Fall 2013). Beneath them Twinkle Toes-ty (Holiday 2013) and Xtreme Wear in Rosey Shooter, Sea-ly String, Frazzle Dazzle and Green Rocket from the Fall 2013 range (see more info here) I’m very excited to try out these two from the new Sephora X collection. This is Spark and Bombshell. And then, finally…. more Revlon. Parfumerie in Autumn Spice and Winter Mint, Revlon Elusive, Revlon Sun Candy in Lava Flame and some spider nail art stencils that I think are Halloween 2012 or 2013 (sale item). So there you have it. My addiction laid bare. Anything catch your eye and what you would like to see first?? Hit me up in the comments!
