Here are all my scented Revlon polishes, the first collection was "Fruitful Temptations", it was a collection of limited edition colours, inspired by exotic summer fruits, each polish had a corresponding unique fruit smell. The colours that I got from that collection were Sublime Strawberry, Passionate Fruit and Not-so-blue berry. The entire collection included: Not So Blue-berry, Passionate Fruit, Mad about Mango, Mon Cherry, Raspberry Rapture, Sublime Strawberry, Pretty in Papaya and Coconut Crush. And the new collection is "Scents of Summer" which includes another 8 colours: Beach, Ocean Breeze, Peach Smoothie, Orange Pop, Grape Icy, Cotton Candy, Gum Drop and Bubbble Gum.

Revlon Peach Smoothie
I love peach nail polishes, so this one stood out to be right away. It is a pale peach with gold shimmer. This is really runny, and took 4 coats! You can tell how runny it's going to be just by looking at the polish in the bottle. I don't think any polish should take more than 3 coats in my opinion. And the smell, I guess it's supposed to smell like peaches, doesn't really.
Revlon Gum Drop
Gum Drop is really a neat, unique colour. It's a pale blue with purple creme. This was 3 coats, same formulation as Peach Smoothie above, a pain to apply. The smell was more tolerable on this one, reminds me of bubblegum.
And some swatches from last year's "Fruitful Temptations" collection. I found these to be a lot easier to apply, perhaps just because of the colours that I chose.
Revlon Not So Blue-berry
This is a gorgeous, frosty blue loaded with teal shimmers. The application was good on this, about 2-3 coats. The scent was okay.
Revlon Sublime Strawberry
This one is my favourite of that collection, it's a mid-tone pink with silver shimmers. The application was good, 2-3 coats needed. It's like a creme with shimmers.
Revlon Passionate Fruit
This one is a lovely, vibrant and glossy magenta, purple creme, 2-3 coats needed.
I think Revlon makes nice colours, but the scented when dry idea does not really interest me. When you add topcoat over these, the smell dies down a bit, but it is definitely noticeable and gives me a headache. I am sure scented polishes intrigues many people, but once you get it it's kinda ugh. It's like scented markers, the novelty is cute, but it serves no purpose. The idea is cute for kids, but what adult woman will be sniffing their polishes?
What do you think of scented polishes?
