Revlon Scented Polish for Summer 2011!

I love nail polish that performs a trick. That’s why I still enjoy crackle, and I continue to love magnetic polish. And also why I couldn’t resist picking up six of Revlon’s scented nail polish new for summer!

These are all more on the sheer side, with what I would describe as a glass-fleck formula. They look a bit icy, and refreshing for hot summer days. I meant to get this post up sooner, when they were more widely available, but time just got away from me! I hope you’ll enjoy the pic spam, nonetheless!

Watermelon Fizz:

Watermelon Fizz is a juicy red-pink with a pleasant, sweet scent. I used three coats here.

Grapefruit Fizz:

Grapefruit Fizz is a sheer light pink with icy shimmer. I don’t like grapefruit, so I was worried about this scent the most. But it was pleasant and a little tangy but still sweet.

Colada Fizz:

Colada Fizz is a very sheer light blue that just looks like someone shaved frozen snow on my nails and glossed it up! This would make a nice layering polish to create a shimmer where there is a creme! Because on its own, all you see are my stained nails underneath and that’s no good!

Pineapple Fizz:

Pineapple Fizz is a sheer yellow shimmer – it’s more opaque than Grapefruit Fizz and Colada Fizz. I am not the biggest fan of sheer polish but I do love that chunky shimmer of the glass-fleck in these.

Apple-tini Fizz:

Apple-tini Fizz looks so refreshing in the bottle! It’s a sheer light Granny Smith green.

Grape Fizz:

Grape Fizz is a sheer grape shimmer. This one is a favorite of the six I bought!

I believe there were two others in this release – one was an orange scent. Since I generally don’t like orange-scented things, I decided to leave that one behind. I can’t remember what the other one was, but I want to say it was a mint, and it was a sheer white?

I picked these up at Walgreens about a month, month and a half ago (I miss my long nails!) so I’m not sure about their availability anymore. I’ve seen displays out there, but they aren’t full.

Did you pick any of these up this summer? What’s your favorite?! What do you think about scented nail polish?!

    I saw these at Bed Bath and Beyond a couple weekends ago. I was real tempted to pick them up but didn’t I wonder what they would look like layered over a white coat or a similar colored creme.

      I think layering is a good idea. I will have to try this and post! Stay tuned!

    Your nails looked so pretty! I’m not bothering with these. There awfully sheer.

    • BeautyJudy

      They are very sheer! I love Watermelon Fizz though!

    The purple is very pretty. Don’t care for the yellow though. I want to like yellow polish so much but I can’t.

    • BeautyJudy

      I will layer that yellow polish. I don’t care much for it by itself. I thought they were all going to be a bit more opaque than they turned out to be, to be honest.

    I have never seen this collection in stores, but in Italy we miss a lot of things…
    I own 2 polishes from an old scented collection, Ocean Breeze and Beach, I really like them – but they made a lot of bubbles, what a pity.

    • BeautyJudy

      Ah, but in Italy you must have other wonderful things?! Are there brands you get that we don’t?! No bubbles with this year’s scented polishes!

    I like Revlon’s scented polishes even when it turns out not to smell like what the name is – that just makes me laugh. I haven’t seen this collection at all here.

    • BeautyJudy

      LOL Yeah, sometimes they just smell sweet but nondiscriminant, not like the name!
