The white-hot nail-care category added a glossy finish to Revlon Inc.’s fourth quarter, in which sales rose 8.8 percent.
The mass-market beauty firm’s net income for the quarter ended Dec. 31 was $46.5 million, or 89 cents a diluted share, compared with $36.4 million, or 70 cents a share, in the year-earlier period. The company’s net sales in the quarter were $391.3 million, compared to $359.8 million in the year-ago period, driven in part by Revlon cosmetics, SinfulColors nail polishes and the inclusion of the Pure Ice nail color brand, which the company acquired in July. Excluding the unfavorable impact of foreign currency translation, sales rose 9.3 percent.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
