I have this in Bewitching and love the colour. Revlon always has a great range of colours. The brush isn't quite a thick, so makes application a bit more tedious, but once on it stays on. The lasting coverage is great!

Hit and miss
I own multiples of this product in plenty of different shades (over all these years!) and I have to say, it really comes down to the shade. Some shades are buttery and beautiful, others fall short and require multiple coats to see much colour which is a shame. Sometimes they can be streaky, or look perfect on the first go. I have this in a mint and light purple colour (very similar levels of colour) and the mint is just streak city, whereas the purple is a dream. I don't care much for the stock-standard brush though, it's a bit too long and rounded for me to like it!

Great product for the price
I have several of Revlon's nail polishes mainly because of freebees (when I purchased over a certain amount) although I have brought a few aswell. I love the colour range and for the price you pay I think the product is very good quality.

I own silver several pastels reds and purples. I found the formula excellent for the darker colours but the pastels require three to four coats before i get opacity. For such a big international brand I would expect their pastels to be far more opaque.

I love this nail polish! It goes on thick enough that you don't need two coats, which makes it perfect for a quick polish on your way out. It stands up well to the more expensive polishes in terms of lasting, and there are more than enough colours to choose from.

I have a number of these nail polishes as I find them competitively priced and great quality.
I love the colours available. I love the finish of the polish. It makes my nails looks good. My nails dry smooth and shiny.
I usually get 4 days wear out of this polish before they start to chip...

I've been buying Revlon Classic Nail Enamel for decades, and am always impressed by the consistency, price, great formulas & the huge range of on-trend & traditional shades.
My biggest issue when I'm buying a new bottle is choosing what shade(s) to buy, and that's hardly an issue, is it?
Revlon have had the same shape bottle & brush design for as long as I remember - it works really well. The polish always applies nicely, evenly, and gives consistent results, no matter what shade. Usually 2 coats is all I need, with a favourite top coat, I find it rarely chips, even after 5 or 6 days.
A polish I've bought for decades & will continue to buy for many more to come!

A True Classic - Best in Beauty 2013
After years of only really buying OPI polishes I decided I would revisit the Revlon Classic range as they still held a great reputation and there were heaps of pretty colours on offer. I feel quite nostalgic about these polishes as I remember them from childhood and it’s nice to see the packaging hasn’t changed too much over the years. For a while now I’ve been gathering quite a collection of these and they vary in terms of quality, opacity and finish, but for the most part I am very impressed by them. The brushes are thinner than those of most other brands, but this is generally a good thing as it allows for greater precision. A quick rundown of my favourites include:
• Urban – a very dark navy blue
• Flirt – a cool pink with mauve tones, very feminine and pretty
• Dreamer – what I would describe as a cross between powder and cornflower blue. I received a number of compliments when I wore this colour
• Fearless – a bright, warm toned red
• Popular – a fun glittery shade: light pink base with silver glitter
My only slightly negative experience with this range is when I purchased Posh Pink. I was tossing up between whether to purchase Posh Pink, or another very similar shade called Bubbly. They look virtually identical, the only difference being Posh Pink has a subtle silvery shimmer running through it. It looks absolutely gorgeous in the bottle, but unfortunately has a very goopy consistency and requires several coats before an opaque finish can be reached. It takes a very long time to dry and so in the process can be easily smudged, meaning it’s nigh impossible to get a smooth appearance. Reading online reviews of this shade have since confirmed the fault in its formula. However, every brand of nail polish has a few dud shades, but it’s such a shame with this one as the colour is so pretty!
On the whole I find the quality of these polishes to be excellent and I’ve found my nails remain chip free for a long time. There is a great selection of colours and I find every time I go past the Revlon counter I can’t help but spy a few more I’d love to add to my collection.

Revlon produces some of my favourite nail polishes. I have so many of these Classic Nail Enamels, more than any other brand.
I love how these come in quite a big bottle, which is a great value for money. There are some quite expensive brands out there that come in smaller bottles!
These apply like a dream. Although they don't have my favourite flat brush, the rounded brush works just fine. The polishes apply really smoothly, I find other brands can get really bumpy when you attempt to apply a second coat. However these don't. Additionally, the ones I have achieve fully opacity in only two coats. Admittedly, I only have the dark nail polishes.
I love how long these last. Particularly on my toe nails, they can last a good 3 weeks with little chipping. On the hands they don't last as long, but still better than other nail polishes I have.
These are excellent quality nail polishes with a huge colour range and you can often get them on sale, which is even better!

Great colour range and good quality
I have a few of these and it has been hit and miss. I have found that the darker shades last longer and require fewer coats. My favourite shades has to be "Cherries in the Snow" a lovely red colour that seems to have been around for ages. I also love their sheer range of nail polishes and they last amazingly as well as look really cute and professional.
As other reviewers have said some of the lighter colours do require a few coats and especially with "popular" tend to be a little streaky. Overall though,I am impressed with the price and colour range as well as the quality.
