I'm a simple Scottish girl with an unusual name and a strange obsession for nail polish! My aim is to capture what the eye sees, with a camera! Too much nail polish and never enough time. Welcome to my little world :-)

Revlon Fresh Linen



This is okay to use and awkward to apply. The polish is really thin and streaky. It is okay drying wise (3-4 minutes a coat). This requires 4 coats to get a decent finish!!!! It's scented and not too overpowering. It smells like fabric conditioner - just a general non-bio one. I did noticed with this one that the lid was hard to hold and use with my long nails, this is something I hadn't noticed when my nails were shorter. Lasted really well and the scent was still there the next day too.

  4. I like it - but 4 coats is a bit too much, and I had hoped the scent would be like fresh air dried linen (I love that) - not fabric conditioner LOL

  6. White linen sounds nice and promising, but the scent you described, doesn't. But you just reminded me, I still wanted to post my Revlon Autumn Spice ;o)

    Kind regards,

  10. It's a pretty little color but four coats is one too many for something that's not a duochrome, lol.

  13. It looks so nice, a fresh simple color.
    And ha ha I hate streaks, it happens with some of my white nail polishes and I end up coating it more than twice, which is a little too much for me :)

    1. It is really pretty!

      Haha yeah streaks are so annoying! Thicker coats usually work for colours like that! :-)

  14. I've found the cap so uncomfortable to handle!
    But I'm quite happy with the formula in the one I own.
    Pity for the quality in this! It's an elegant colour, once opaque :D
