Revlon - Royal

Revlon - Royal
2 coats

Royal is gorgeous blue jelly polish. It's a popular base for Max Factor - Fantasy Fire and that's actually the reason I bought this (also it was on sale). The formula was fine except it had a weird smell to it. After being around nail polish for a while I've become used to the way both the 3-free and pre-3-free formulas smell but I've never smelt one like this before. It smelled like the polish had gone off or something, can that even happen? I smelled on different days in case the fumes had started messing with my head but it still smelt weird the next time. Has anyone else noticed this one smells funny or is it just my bottle?

  3. I don't have that color but it's very pretty! I can't comment on the smell either but some of my polishes smell stranger than the others!

  4. I have always wanted this polish but everytime I go to Ulta they are all separated and settled weird, so I'm not suprised about the smell. The color is so lovely though!!

    1. It might be ok if you shake it. I bought a polish that had all the pigment settled at the bottom and weird yellowy polish at the top. It turned out fine after I shook it up. :)

  5. Yeah mine does have a different smell. I used to hate it. I think I've either gotten used to it or the smell has dull. Either way, it gets better.

  9. I've heard there are good and bad batches of this Revlon-so if it smells, you may have the bad batch-but isnt it a gorgeous blue???? This is THE ONLY drugstore polish I have bought besides sinful cinderella.

    1. Yeah I must have one from the bad batch, the colour is still gorgeous though! I wish sinful colours was sold here, it used to be but that was before I got into polish. :(

  10. My Revlon Royal smells weird too. And it's not like any other polish I've ever smelled. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one. Lol Although I think mine's from the good batch since it has no separating but mine is much less of a jelly than yours looks. I tried layering it over a glitter and it just covered the glitter entirely. That's okay, though. I still love it's color! :)
