Vintage Valentines - Revlon Streetwear - Scary 061

Luscious blood red jelly  


Revlon Streetwear is definitely one of my favourite vintage brands.

As I'm sure most of you know, Street Wear was Revlon's answer to the Hard Candy and Urban Decay's of this world back in the 90's.


And boy did they come out with some amazing polishes.  Please go check out Kaz of Pretty Random's reference guide

I have a very modest collection of about 25 polishes, mixed between the US and European releases and I've shared a few swatches before.

But for Friday the 13th and  (nearly) Valentines this polish seemed very appropriate.





Scary is a stunning blood red jelly.

Perfect in 2 coats, application was a dream and look at that shine!  Especially as I took these pictures today in natural light and it's been grey and rainy for most of the day here.

Sadly most of the Streetwears are very hard to come by now although a few pop up on ebay now and again.

And oddly, although the brand disappeared many years ago, Revlon launched (or relaunched?) the Street Wear brand in India in 2014.  But sadly with tiny bottles of what look like standard colours....

What's your favourite vintage brand?
