Revelique High Shine Nail Polish in Mermaid (80)

My favourite color is blue and every imaginable shade or variety of blue always comes close to my heart. Teal is a shade I've always loved so this totally summery minty-teal got me all excited from the first time I've laid my eyes on it. I also love the shape and the size of their nail polish bottles because they're so cute and appealing. What I find handy is the non-slippery matte cap which completely minimizes the possibility of slippery accidents. What's also good to mention is that, if you're new to Revelique and you seek information on the nail polish and its content, you will find everything on the bottle itself. I especially appreciate the fact that the entire ingredient list is visible and that they inform you how these nail polishes are nice and fresh for 24 months after opening them.

Inace je moja omiljena boja plava tako da svaka moguca nijansa ili varijacija plave mi uvijek bude draga srcu. Plavicasto-zelena mi se oduvijek dopadala tako da mi je ova mentolasta varijacija koja naprosto doziva ljeto itekako izazvala navalu uzbudjenja od samog trenutka kada sam je ugledala. Kod ovih lakova mi se dopada njihov simpa oblik i velicina koje pa mi jako slatki i zgodjusni. Takodjer je jako koristan detalj sto su im poklopci izradjeni od mat, potpuno otporne plastike pa je znatno smanjena mogucnost od isklizivanja iz prstica i nereda time izazvanim. Takodjer zelim napomenuti da, ako se tek susrecete sa Revelique lakovima te trazite neke osnovne informacije o njima ili njihovom sastavu, pronaci cete zeljene detalje na samoj bocici. Zaista cijenim sto je kompletna lista sastojaka citljiva i da je jasna informacija da ce lakovi od trenutka otvaranja biti svjezi puna 24 mjeseca.

The consistency is what I'm now used to get from revelique High Shine Nail Polishes – a wonderful, creamy and medium thick texture which gives perfect results with two coats. It has a short, thick brush that works perfectly with the consistency and results are free from any streaks and easy to remove. I hate when certain nail polishes seem to cling on the surrounding nail bed skin and stain it completely. That will not happen with these. If you mess up, you can “erase” any mistakes with a cotton bud soaked with nail polish remover. These do have a specific smell to them, quite standard with nail polishes, but it's not nausea-inducing, even for me. The shade Mermaid (80) is actually quite appropriate because it does remind me of a minty, aqua sea foam that, for some reason, remind me of Ariel. Cartoon logic nevertheless!


Konzistencija je upravo takva na sto me Revelique vec navikao – prekrasna, kremasta i srednje gustoce. Pruza idealne rezultate sa dva sloja. Dolazi sa kratkom i gustom cetkicom koja savrseno funkcionise sa teksturom laka te su rezultati i vise nego zadovoljavajuci, bez ikakvih packi ili nesavrsenosti u nanosenju a lak je takoder veoma lako odstraniti. Ne volim kada se lakovi bukvalno “lijepe” za kozicu oko nokta ili ostavljaju mrlje kojih se tesko rijesiti. To mi se ne desava sa ovim lakovima. Ako i napravite gresku pri nanosenju, mozete je “izbrisati” uz pomoc stapica za usi natopljenog odstranjivacem laka za nokte. Sto se mirisa tice, imaju onaj specificni miris za lakove kakav je slucaj kod vecine sa kojim sam se susrela ali zaista nije napadan i ne izaziva glavobolje ili mucninu cak ni meni koja sam osjetljiva. Ova odredjena nijansa, Mermaid/ Sirena (80), je dobila ime koje joj uistinu i pristaje jer me podsjeca na mentolastu, akvaticnu morsku pjenu koja me, iz nepoznatih razloga, podsjeca na Ariel. Asocijacija na crtic, od svih stvari!

It's such a beautiful shade, I think that I'll be wearing it all spring and summer. I already imagine it paired with pretty pastels hence the pale pink background and decorative minty candy. I think all three make a wonderful pairing. The Mermaid is also pretty darn impressive in the endurance department. As every Revelique nail polsih reviewed on the blog, it can last up to five days straight without any base or top coat but in combination with either of the two (especially top coat), an entire week certaily sounds and is impressive. I find that Revelique nail polishes rarely chip and the only sign of them wearing out is a thin, fine white line along the tips on nails. That is something more easy to cover up, at least it is for me. They dry fairly quickly and I find that the best way to go is to apply a very thin first coat, which dries literally in seconds, than proceed with a thicker coat which will require few minutes to fully dry. Those two coats give full coverage and I never need a third coat with these polishes. My favourite “intruder” who likes to spy on me editing photos for the blog asked my why my fingers are greasy so I figured that probably some of you might ask the same question. I tend to make swatches of three or more polishes in a row so to keep my cuticles in a decent condition, I apply Revelique cuticle oil. I hope that it won't bother you. It's just a little something that makes multiple swatches in a row a little bit easier for my hands. These nail polishes are suitable for artificial nails as well and are free from Formaldehyde, Toluene and DBP. Available only in Bosnia and pricet at approx 4,5$.


Ovo mi je tako lijepa nijansa, mislim da cu je nositi na nokticima cijelo proljece i ljeto. Vec je zamisljam u kombinaciji sa njeznim pastelnim bojama pa je i podloga u tonovima njezne ruzicaste uz koji komad mentolastih bombonica. Mnogo mi se dopada kombinacija sve tri boje. Mermaid me dojmila i po pitanju dugotrajnosti. Poput svakog Revelique laka za nokte koji sam recenzirala, moze izgurati i pet dana na nokticima bez baze ili nadlaka ali u kombinaciji sa bilo kojim od njih (posebno nadlaka) trajnost se produzi i na sedam dana sto zvuci a i jeste odlicno. Uopsteno sam primjetila da se Revelique lakovi rijetko odlome uz rub nokta nego se tragovi nosenja ispoljavaju u vidu one tanke bjelicaste linije uz vrh nokta. Meni je to dosta lakse prekriti i popraviti od okrzotina. Suse se dosta brzo a kao najbolji nacin nanosenja mi se pokazalo nanosenje jako tankog prvog sloja (koji se ce osusiti bukvalno za par sekundi) a potom nanesem nesto gusci drugi sloj (njemu ce biti potrebno par minuta). Uz ta dva sloja dobijem potpunu prekrivnost a treci mi sloj sa ovim lakovima uopste nije potreban. Moje omiljeno “smetalo” koje voli gurati svoj nosic kada god editujem slike za blog me pitalo zasto su mi prstici masni. Pomislila sam da ce se onda i netko od vas to isto zapitati pa odlucih da odgovorim. Nerijetko mi se desava da u jednom danu radim swatcheve vise lakova za nokte pa kako bih odrzala zanoktice u pristojnom stanju, nanesem Revelique ulje za zanoktice oko noktica. Nadam se da vam to nece zasmetati. To je mali trik kojim se sluzim kako bih rukama olaksala svo zloupotrebljavanje. Ove lakove za nokte mozete koristiti i na vjestackim noktima i ne sadrze formaldehide, toluen niti DBP. Dostupni su u odabranim cm-ovima sirom BiH po cijeni od 6,85KM.

    Prelijepa boja, sviđa mi se što ima malo primjese sive i odlično ističe tvoju boju kože 🙂

      Upravo! I meni je draze sto ima predominantne primjese sive a ne bijele tako da ne izgleda isprano ili neupecatljivo. Drago mi je da ti se dopada, a jako volim ovakve bojice tako da mi je lakic bas "legao" :))
