NOTD: Revlon Lilac Pastelle + Revlon Peach Petal

Hi everyone,
I know I've been absent from this blog for ages - this is my final year of uni so I'm trying to focus a lot more on studying this year, but now that we're on Easter break I'll hopefully have the time to write a few blogs.

Tonight, I just have two quick manicures to share with you.  Both of these colours were purchased in my post project 20 pan haul when Priceline had a buy one get one free promotion for nail polish and lip products.  I'll try to post up swatches of the lip things I bought later this week.

Anyway, onto the pictures....

Revlon Lilac Pastelle
This was Revlon Lilac Pastelle, from one of the Revlon limited edition seasonal ranges from last year.  It actually looked quite pink in some lights and I'm still not 100% what I think of this colour.  This needed four coats.

Revlon Peach Petal
This needed five coats and I still had a bit of a visible nail line on some nails, so it was quite sheer.  Likewise, I'm not too sure what I think of this.  I found both these colours looked a little bit fluoro in some lights, although maybe they just don't suit my skin tone?  In real life, Peach Petal looks more orange than this but it would be a nice colour for spring.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Studying always gets in the way, of everything. :(

    I have to say I think the Lilac Pastelle suits your skintone more, it's a nice subtle pink.

  2. hey welcome back! Hope studying isn't too awful. My final year was the worst but I bet you will find it's all over in no time at all :D

    I am totally loving Peach petal but how dare it be so annoyingly sheer lol.

  3. I have the lilac pastelle one and I absolutely love the colour, but it goes on so clumpy and yucky compared to other Revlon polish, do you have the same problem or is it just me? Haha

  4. That's a beautiful color! I love it. =) Great blog. I found your link on specktra. Now following. It'd be great if we could follow each other.
