Revlon Scented Nail Enamel in Peach Smoothie NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 9 - 2011

Well, I’ve tried one and you still ain’t gonna convince me that I need scented nail polish.  Infact, if anything… the scent gave me a low-grade headache.  Me no like and I sniffed my fingers.  Once.  It made me feel like a pervert.

Scent-aside, Revlon’s Peach Smoothie is an adorable colour.  I can’t decide whether it makes me want to snuggle in a cable knitted jumper or go lick an ice-cream.  It transcends seasons with its peach loveliness.  Depending on your skintone you may also find this making a good nude shade.

It’s a little sheer and needs 3 full coats to avoid a VNL but I’ll forgive that because it’s a quick-dryer.  It contains a very pretty gold sparkle which isn’t quite as prominent as I would like.

Revlon Scented Nail Enamels are priced at £6.49 and available from Boots.com

    I can just detect the sparkle. Good picture as I’ve not noticed it before.

    Gorgeous colour! Even if the polish was a nice scent, though, I’d still avoid scented polishes because you’d REALLY look like a perv/oddball if you were sniffing your fingers all day :S

  5. It’s a lovely colour, but I’m with you – I pretty much hate scent in cosmetics!

    I kind of like the idea of scented polish but I think it would need to be a bit more of a playful fun scent to entice me in.

    I have it. It smells of sick. Which was ironic, as it made me want to vomit.

    Smelly polishes make me feel sick! The colour really does look lovely though but not for my skin tone methinks xx

    I don’t really get the point of adding a scent to nail polishes, but this color is gorgeous!

    If your just looking for the colour, Natural Collection from Boots has a very similar unscented one, the name of which currently escapes me. It’s a little more coral but quite similar.

    There is something quite dodgy about sniffing your own fingers! Pretty colour though :) x

    I bought this a few months ago and have yet to try it; I love the color! I’ve only worn a scented polish once recently and I too felt quite pervy smelling my fingers! Goes with the territory I guess. :P

    I am not too fussed when it comes to scented polishes but I must say that colour is gorgeous:)

  16. I really like this, I’ve only really recently gotten into more subtle shades. Would you say its like a nail polish version of Illamasqua’s emerge cream pigment only maybe a bit lighter?

    I never understood the whole finger sniffing- pervert thing… oh well! The colour looks nice on you :) x

    Can’t really decide whether I like the colour or not. I keep looking back at it and then away and my opinion keeps changing… hmm.

    The finger sniffing element is putting me off also. I’d feel very much like Mr Collins – and that’s not what a girl wants with a new product!

    Getting a headache from a product that is designed to prevent it is not good. I love the shade though!
