Revlon definitely has one of the better nail polishes at the cheaper end of the spectrum. There's a fairly wide variety of colors, and I generally get decent wear out of them. I do, however, avoid the deeper purples as they tend to be far sheerer than I would like. But for 4 bucks or less, I can't really complain.

Black Envy - The Perfect Fall & Winter Color!
I was given this my one of my wonderful friends. The Revlon Black with Envy is such a gorgeous color! It's a deep shimmery charcoal grey. I love it! It's a perfect shade for the fall and the winter! The formula was a teeny bit watery. But not to the point where I am annoyed because I do have other Revlon polishes and they are very runny. Totally annoying ! For me, it took only 2 coats to be even and opaque. After the 1st coat, it was streaky and uneven but the second coat fixed that right up! =) The brush is nice and didn't find it stiff. There is a smell, but smells just like any other nail polish. I don't know about drying time because I use a fast dry top coat. I would recommend you check this color out if they still have it available!
I LOVE nail polish! I saw a sale at CVS and decided to branch out from China Glaze, Sinful Colors, and OPI and try a pale purple and a mint shade of revlon nail polish. Unfortunately, I wasn't thrilled. Revlon doesn't cover evenly, by the time you dip the brush again the polish on the nail is a different texture and each swipe makes it streaky. Additionally, I didn't think the wear was that great. I used OPI base coat and finished with OPI chip-skip but I still felt that there were many cracks and chips before there should have been. Overall, the shades are appealing but the quality is....leaving something to be desired.
The best choice for the price!
I compare this nail polish, Revlon vs. Chanel. I found the Carbonite color from Revlon, which its very similar to the famous and chic Graphite from Chanel! And the best part? Its cost like $4.99 vs. $2five.00!! The color looks chic and eleagant! A must to try durin this fall!!
great for layering!
I layered this with wet n wild's party of five nail polish and it's gorgeous! Love all Revlon polishes! Black lingerie is a deep black polish. When you apply, you have to use a little bit at a time, or it will smudge/run. With the smudging/running, I still love the color. This polish is just as good or even better than some of the higher priced nail polishes. If you haven't tried this polish yet, you need to :)
One of my top favorites. It lasts a really long time without chipping, especially if I've added a top coat. They've got a great variety of colors. It mixes well with other brands if I want to layer colors.
I only have this in the color 'Hot For Chocolate,' and I absolutely love it! You could probably only use one coat with these and they'd still turn out great.
They are great!
I have the colors Gum Drop, Make Mine Mango, Gold Get Em', Grape Icy and a couple others I think. You don't need more then 2 coats for any of them your sometimes good with just 1!
Revlon's formula for nail polish is probably the best when it come to drugstore polishes, and the price is just right. I get typical wear out of my Revlon polishes, nothing spectacularly short or long. I do love when Revlon does scented polishes! They're so fun!
