NOTD: Revlon Scented Nail Enamel in #305 "Sublime Strawberry"

Hey Guys!
I picked up one of the Revlon Scented nail polishes in my recent drugstore haul because I was interested in the concept of a "scented" nail polish. Initially, I imagined a scented nail polish would just give me a headache because I've very sensitive when it comes to smells. However, when dry, this polish wasn't nearly as strong in fruity scent as I thought it would be. Actually, after a day of wear I could barely notice the scent at all. As you may have guessed, "Sublime Strawberry" has a strawberry scent. It is a mid-tone pink with micro glitters. I didn't use a top coat over top as I wanted to see how long the polish itself would wear and figured a top coat would mask the scent of the polish. The polish itself wore for 4-5 days with no nicks or chips. The tips of my nails were started to wear a bit from use, but that happens with all my polishes because I'm very "hands on" at work. I recommend 2-3 coats with this polish as 1 coat is very sheer. I probably wouldn't repurchase as scented nail polishes aren't really my thing. I could see myself liking this polish more when I was a young teen.

  5. I've tried the Revlon scented polishes (I'm actually wearing one today that I applied last night) - the scent isn't very strong and I can't notice the smell now.

    It is an interesting concept though.

  7. Now I NEVER post about make up or polish, this is the first time, but I just bought this scented polish the other day. Yesterday I used a base coat, 2 layers of this, and 2 layers of top coat. Today, I went out and bought a crackle, so I added a layer of that and another layer of top coat. I can STILL smell this nail polish the next day after adding 2 extra layers of polish (on top of the 2 top coat I used yesterday!
