Full review and swatch of the Wintermint shade from the Revlon parfumerie scented nail polish collection. This is a minty green-glue with small blue hex-glitters that has a candy-cane like smell to match. It reminds me of the sparkly sea on a really sunny day here in San Diego with the promise of a “green flash” sunset. So pretty!Wintermint - Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Polish Swatch & Review
