NOTD - Revlon Scented Nail Enamel in Pretty in Papaya
As you may know, I love my red polishes and I love a good bargain. This couldn't be any more perfect...oh but it could! It's scented!
To be honest I wasn't completely convinced that polishes could actually smell pleasant but this proved me wrong. Once this has dried, it has a strong fruity fragrance that I found myself inhaling at every opportunity. I am sure I must have looked ridiculous smelling my fingernails and I probably suffered some kind of fume inhalation problem, but it was so worth it. It smells wonderful, and you get to carry it around on your nails for days! (Sadly the scent does wear off after two or three days).
The formulation of this polish is wonderful. It takes two coats to become opaque and there is absolutely no streakiness or trouble with the application. This polish is ideal in every way.
I will say - although I personally enjoyed the scent, my Mum despised it and thought the concept of a scented polish was awful. Whether you like this will depend upon personal taste.
My only complaint would be that it takes a little while to dry. Actually, I don't think it does take all that long but I have become accustomed to the super fast drying polishes (thanks Essence and Rimmel) and have no patience whatsoever.
I am really pleased with this $2 bargain!
Have you tried any of the scented polishes Revlon has to offer?

I haven't tried any scented ones from Revlon but I have used one from Rimmel. I simply adore the concept, a much appreciated bonus :) The shade you have on is perfect for the upcoming season!ReplyDelete
It is such a bonus! I'm really pleased with the shade too :)Delete
This shade is gorgeous, a red leaning towards orange :) What a great buy too! I still can't believe that a nail polish could smell good- I haven't tried them myself. Loving this colour though!ReplyDelete
It's such a pretty balance of orange and red! It doesn't smell good when it is wet, but once dry it's just the greatest!Delete
That's a nice red! WHAT a nice smelling polish? I must check these out! I always hate the smell of nail polish and nail polish remover.ReplyDelete
Haha, I know right? Hard to believe a polish could actually smell nice! Admittedly it doesn't smell all that great when wet but once it has dried it smells lovely!Delete
That is such a pretty colour, and a great bargain! That's so cool that it's scented after it dries, but I could imagine that wouldn't last for too long, wouldn't it? xxReplyDelete
I am so pleased being able to purchase it for so little! You're right, the scent doesn't last for all that long...two to three days max. Still, it's fun while it lasts!Delete
Looks very pretty!ReplyDelete
It is lovely :)Delete
I've never really thought of getting a scented nail polish because I didn't think that they would be any good. But after this review, I've had to think twice and possibly go out and buy some! That shade looks really good on your nails, perfect shade of red and a little bit of orange. And like you, I've gotten really attached to essence nail polish because they super fast! I look forward to all of your posts because they are so helpful and very interesting to read :)ReplyDelete
I've found this to be just as good as any other polish...with the added bonus of smelling so good! It is a really lovely balance of red and orange. My goodness, Essence products are absolutely wonderful! Thanks Sophie!Delete
Wow bargain! I've seen some beauties in the Target beauty bargain bin, and this is a great example! Love the way this looks on the nails.. really want to smell it though ;)ReplyDelete
Target is just amazing for discounted makeup. Take my word, it smells awesome! :)Delete
