Revlon already launched a limited edition of scented nail polishes last summer, and they’re doing it again for the summer of 2013. Last year they went for fruity fragrances, and this time they decided to infuse their nail polishes with the scent of five delicious desserts. I am a real dessert lover (my motto is: ‘’life is uncertain, east dessert first’’) so I am very happy with Revlon’s choice! The new Revlon Scented Treats collection consists of five pretty nail lacquers, all with a different scents. Have look and a sniff with me.
Sugar Glaze: soft pink with the scent of sugar frosting
Cherry Bon Bon: bright red with a sweet cherry fragrance
Raspberry Scone: raspberry purple with the smell of raspberry ice cream
Strawberry Cream: coral pink that smells of strawberries
Mint Gelato: trendy mint green that not only looks but also smells like mint
The five new Scented Treats all have the same texture and are easy to apply, but during the application I did notice that some of the shades were easier to work with than others. I struggled a bit to get Mint Gelato and Strawberry Cream to look nice and even and I needed two coats to get decent coverage out of them. Sugar Glaze, Cherry Bon Bon and Raspberry Scone were easier to work with. One coat of these shades was enough for flawless coverage. The easiest nail polish of the five is definitely Raspberry Scone, so if you like quick and easy manis, then this raspberry purple shade will be your best match.
The finish of the five Scented Treats nail enamels is nice and shiny, but I also like how they look with a matte top coat. The colors are all very happy and summery. Of the five shades Cherry Bon Bon is my favorite. This bright warm red shade really flatters my skin tone.
And the scents? Well, they’re very easy to recognize! You can really smell all the desserts. Omnomnom! And the scents don’t fade away, so I am constantly smelling my nails. The phrase “Smell my finger” definitely got a whole different meaning thanks to these Scented Treats ;-) My favorite scent is Strawberry Cream. When I close my eyes and smell Strawberry Cream, it’s like there’s a bowl of delicious strawberries in front of me!
The new Revlon Scented Treats are all 14,90 CHF and are available at Manor and other specialized retailers. I have a feeling that these limited-edition nail polishes will be very popular, so don’t wait too long to get yours!
