Revlon: Cocoa Wine

Nail fail ahead...

Cocoa Wine is a vintage polish from Revlon and this brown cream screams 1990's to me. It must be an old one cos I can't find anything on the interwebs about it either!  Back in the '90's (in my youth, haha!) it was all about brown, bronze, nude, beige etc and chocolatey lips and nails seemed just so right and THE height of fashion.  Well, okay so this polish looks a little dated but that's not why it's a fail.  It applied smoothly for a prehistoric polish too, but after the top coat went on it wrinkled like an old sheet.  Not a good look.  Of course I later saved it with one of my layering experiments but I'll leave that for another post.  Let's just take in the initial disaster for now.  You can see it on the pinky...

Until next time.

  3. Oh man, haha. This color is not for me, and the wrinkling is weird! I've never had that happen before. I can't wait to see how you saved it!

    1. I've never experienced wrinkled polish before so it was just plain weird. Still, it's worth putting up the failures too right?

  4. OH YEAH, 90S FOR SURE!!!

    It's such a delicious fall shade, though. These things tend to come in cycles so I feel that Cocoa Wine will have its moment in the spotlight again!

    1. Perhaps the shade will come back into fashion Liz but I ain't going to be wearing this particular polish again with its weird formula! LOL

    1. So glad you like it! I used to love these colours way back in the day. So sad they look a little dated - just waiting for the fashion and beauty clock to come back around :)
