What's That Perfume You're Wearing? Revlon Scented Nail Enamel - Not So Blueberry and Bubble Gum

 Not So Blueberry

Revlon has re-released scented nail enamels.  These have been out in previous years, and I was excited to pick up Not So Blueberry which I had missed earlier.  These scented nail polishes are fragranced even after drying.  Initially I was intrigued by the novelty of it.  I wondered if it would actually smell after application and how long it would last.  I also worried if the fragrance would effect the formula.

The formula was a pleasant surprise.  Two coats for Not So Blueberry, a shimmering purple-berry foil, to a completely opaque coverage.  Bubble Gum needed three coats; it had more of a slightly transparent creme finish, though not quite jelly.

I was expecting scent, but I don't think I was expecting the degree of fragrance.  I love perfume, but the fragrances radiating from my nails was actually interfering with my perfume on my body.  Even after 24+ hours of wear, a shower and numerous hand scrubbings, the blueberry and bubblegum scents, which kinda just smelled the same after a while, were still going strong.  So, the novelty of scented nail polish wore off faster than the actual fragrance.  Also, I think it looks weird to be sniff your nails constantly. :)

 Bubble Gum actually smelled more like watermelon than gum!  Sniff sniff.

Do you want your nail polish scented?  What fragrance would you put in your lacquer?
