Revlon Sheer Blush Nail Enamel is a cream coloured sheer (Duh me) nail polish, I actually bought this really hoping that it was going to be a bit more opaque than it actually was because I love the cream colour that it appears in the bottle.

Sheer Blush is the most pretty nude cream shade, being very glossy as well as extremely sheer when it's applied it's almost a 'your nail but better' colour.
I tried to see how many coats it would take to become fully opaque and it ended up being 7-8 thick coats, so unfortunately even once I'd managed to get one nail done it wouldn't dry properly and smudged everywhere, so instead I settled for 5 thin coats which seemed to dry faster although I was still able to see the nail but it did look pretty.

Sheer Blush isn't the fastest drying polish I own, even with thin coats it took quite a while to dry, being touch dry in about 2 minutes and totally hard dry after about an hour. So they were susceptible to smudging and ruining especially with so many coats applied.

On it's own Sheer Blush managed 5 full days with no chips or nail end wear, I was actually getting to the point of thinking "Ok I think it's about time you gave another nail polish a turn" and wondering when it was going to start coming off because then once I'd seen how long it took to chip, I could re-apply and see how it was with a topcoat and paired with another nail polish to do my 'How I wore Sheer Blush' section below.

So eventually when I started to see some wear, I removed it and started again, I applied 5 coats as before and a top coat, it produced an almighty amount of shine, it really was pretty however after 2 days there were chips and dents in the polish and it just wasn't meant to be, a topcoat seemed to ruin it. I think this nail polish is better applied on its own and it provides enough shine that there is no need for a topcoat.

I chose to pair Revlon Sheer Blush with Revlon Heavenly, in my opinion they are the perfect partner's in loveliness. Revlon Heavenly is almost like a glitter version of Sheer Blush. It just seemed to add something slightly more interesting but elegant to the manicure.

I'm still on the lookout for a nice cream nail polish with a little more opacity then Sheer Blush had but I do still like this nail polish, I'm not sure how else I would wear this quite yet as I don't think it's interesting enough to wear less than 3 coats and it's just not great as a top coat because it's not clear so could take the amazingness out of other polishes, I would stick to layering and building Sheer Blush alone as I have tried to overlap this on top of a nude nail polish and although it did look pretty the outcome and time it took seemed pointless and not something I'd really bother with again. So while this was a nice romantic looking manicure I'm not sure it would be my first choice to turn to especially if I were in a rush. 
Revlon Sheer Blush Nail Enamel is available at Boots for £6.49

Do you know of any cream nail polishes? Would you try Revlon Sheer Blush or do you prefer more opaque polishes?

Lots of Love
