Nails of the Week - Revlon Parfumerie Ginger Melon & Rimmel London Marine Blue

Nails of the week - Revlond Parfumerie Ginger Melon & Rimmel Marine Blue
A little late with this week's manicure. I used a new polish for my fingernails and an old polish for my toenails.

I've been looking forward to painting my nails with Revlon Parfumerie Ginger Melon for a few weeks now. This bright, happy shade is especially welcome this week, in stark contrast to the latest streak of cold weather hitting New Jersey. The color is a bright, fun pinky coral cream. Application is surprisingly streaky compared to China Flower, and could have done with a fourth coat to make the color completely opaque on my nail, but it's really not noticeable unless I'm staring directly at my nails in bright daylight. Like with China Flower, visible tip wear shows almost immediately. Since I love this color so much, I will maintain it for a couple of days. As a personal preference, these bright colors are best shiny. No matte this week, unless I get bored and use the matte on one nail!

It was pointed out to me that China Flower should have a woodier smell rather than a strong floral note. With this color, though, there shouldn't be a surprise as to what it should smell like - fruity with a possible hint of ginger. The ginger wasn't present and the smell reminds me of Starbursts, which I happen to like. I'm glad I bought this color and I know I will use it often during the warmer months.

The color for the toes is Rimmel London Marine Blue, a shimmery blue color. The brush is very wide and was actually more difficult to worth with than I remember. But I love this color because it reminds me of the beach and bright blue, cloudless skies in the summer. Case in point:

sand in my shoes - 1/365
Way back in 2010 (I feel old). Those might even be the same pair of jeans.

Come to think of it, I'm not sure if I've ever used it on my fingers. And I won't for a while, since I have Tropical Rain (blue with a hint of shimmer), also from the Revlon Parfumerie line, to try next.

Well, that's it for next week. I'm not sure which color to paint my nails next week - a coral or the blue. I've been digging the pinks and reds lately. See you next week!
