New to Revlon’s extensive nail collection comes this range of scented nail varnishes, offering sweet summery smells just minutes after application.
The question is- good buy, or novelty fad?
Although it sounds like a quirky idea, scented nail varnish is nothing new or exclusive to Revlon by any means. After a bit of clicking about on the web, it’s easy to find a whole host of companies out there dedicated exclusively to the phenomenon that is scented nail varnish. Who knew there would be so much demand!
The craze has even reached top-end design houses such as Dior, who only this spring launched the Garden Party Scented Nail Polish in water lily flavour. This varnish comes in a unique yet mature pale green colour as part of the new Garden Party range (which you might remember we had a quick glance at last week).
So how does Revlon match up?
At a fraction of the price, Revlon offers 16 quirky flavours in vivid and adventurous colours from bright orange to pale pink. If Dior is the svelte mother of modern cosmetics, Revlon has to be the vivacious teenager.
You certainly will have to have a touch of the experimental about you if you’re going to give ‘Orange Pop’ (a bright orangey-red colour), or Bubble Gum (bright pink and smelling like sweet shop) a go.
The bottom line is this: If you want to smell like you’ve been rummaging around in a sweet jar, or dipping your fingers in pinocolada, then this is the collection for you.
Scented nail varnish will probably only ever be just a novelty fad. But, nonetheless, if you’re feeling curious then it’s always worth a try and this will only set you back around £7 a pot, so head over to Boots, take your pick and post your verdict.
You can buy a Limited Edition Revlon Scented Nail Enamel at Boots for £6.49.
