Tropical Temptation - A Review

So I thought I'd do a quick review of the Revlon Tropical Temptation Polish I bought on Monday.

Upon application I have to admit I was slightly disappointed with the colour. In my opinion it looks far more orange than I thought it would. I hoped it would be more pinky in colour. There is nothing wrong with this colour, Its just I already have several colours extremely similar to this one.

However this polish more than makes up for the colour issue with the quality and longevity. I applied this polish on Monday night, it is now Thursday Night, I have showered, exercised, been to work, washed up, and not one chip. Nada. Zilch. I have NEVER had a polish that has lasted this long without chipping.

Also I have only applied one coat of this polish, and the colour is more or less Opaque. It was relatively easy to apply, although did take a while to dry I felt.

Here it is without flash.

The next 2 pictures are with flash and make the polish look a lot more pinker than it really is.

This picture was taken last night 3 Days after Application, I had only just got out of the shower and you can clearly see there are no chips.

This picture was taken just now and you can see 4 days in and still no chips!

I also applied 2 coats of Sally Hansen Miracle Growth Nail Polish underneath beforehand so I'm not sure whether this has helped it last so long or not.

I will 100% be purchasing more of these Polishes. They are well worth the £6 price tag, I already spotted a lovely pink colour which I will be picking up after my Hols :)

Have any of you tried the Revlon Polishes? Any specific Recommendations would be great!|



  1. Make mine Mango is a nice one-especially with a tan :) enjoy your hols xx

  2. I've been wanting this polish for ages as I've seen so many posts on it but i don't think it's stocked in Canada :( I've recently tried Plum Seduction which is also a new shade by Revlon. I wouldn't recommend this one as it takes three coats to look opaque.

  3. Yep, this one is a great nail polish, I loved its easy application as well! ;)
    I can't remember when it started chipping on me, but I think the Sally Hansen might have helped in your case... ;)


  4. I love Revlon nail polishes. My favourite shade is Cherries in the Snow xx

  5. I've tried the revlon polishes without a topcoat or anything and they still stayed on for days and days! I really like midnight affair which is a dark blue colour. Hope you're having a good holiday :) x

  6. Revlon Tropical Temptation Polish seems a very good nail polish as it stays longer without a chip. I am eager to purchase and try.
