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

    this is such a pretty color and it looks so nice on your fingers! <3

  2. Suzanne says:

    Yer a damned fingersniffer.

  3. Jen says:

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

  4. Robyn says:

    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!

  6. Louisa says:

    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.

  7. Get Lippie says:

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

  8. Tass says:

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

  9. gio says:

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

  10. Brittany says:

    I am absolutely loving this shade on your complexion. Stunning!

  11. Lilmiznutcase says:

    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.

  12. Leah says:

    Made you feel like a pervert! Hehehe :) It does look lovely.

  13. Gemx says:

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

  14. Rebecca says:

    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. 😛

  15. Esha says:

    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?

  17. Phoebs says:

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

  18. Sydney says:

    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!

  19. NailCentric says:

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