Revlon Scented Nail Enamel ($4.79)
How fun! Scented nail polish! I’ve never used scented nail polish before so I didn’t know what to expect when I tried out Revlon’s Scented Nail Enamel. Surprisingly, the scented nail polish was very pleasant. The scent wasn’t too overwhelming when the nail polish dried, and they all smelled like their names. Mmm…yummy! I only could smell the fruity scent when my fingers were near my nose. The scent lasted for a couple of days. As each day passed, the scent would fade away.
The nail polish itself is great. I didn’t experience any chipping or peeling for days. I didn’t even use a protective topcoat! Two coats was all I needed for full coverage, and the polish applied very easily and smoothly. There are 16 shades to choose from. You can view them here. The 5 out of the 16 shades I own are:
305 Sublime Strawberry: a rosy pink with tiny golden shimmer
315 Pretty In Papaya: a bold reddish, orange
350 Raspberry Rapture: a red with a hint a of dark pink
365 Orange Pop: a golden, orange duochrome
375 Passion Fruit: a dark, grape purple
Note: Don’t be stupid like me and take a whiff of the nail straight from the bottle thinking it’ll smell yummy fruity. I don’t know what I was thinking. In fact, I don’t think I was using my brain, because I didn’t notice the “scented when dry” label on the bottle until the after big whiff incident. I think I was too excited about the scented feature to notice the big “scented when dry” label.
