Revlon Sweetly Seductive Scented Polish (swatches & review)
Today I have two of the newer scented polishes that Revlon released this summer. They’re from the Sweetly Seductive Collection and guess what folks, each one is a glass flecked jelly!! Each color had a corresponding scented lip gloss that was part of the display, though I didn’t think to grab any of those at the time when I was at the store. I ended up coming home with Apple-Tini Fizz and Grapefruit Fizz. I’m hit or miss with scented polishes so I only picked a few just in case I really didn’t like ‘em. These are pretty sheer, so if you’re not a big fan on VNL (visible nail line) consider yourself warned.
Seche Vite top coat and Sally Hansen Nail Quencher were used for these swatches.
Apple-Tini Fizz is a sheer bright green jelly filled with large glass flecks. The scent on this one reminded me of green apple flavored Jolly Ranchers!
This was four coats and there’s still a considerable amount of VNL. I think Apple-Tini Fizz may be better suited for layering.
The coverage on Grapefruit Fizz was a little better, though you can still make out a hint of VNL. The scent on this one wasn’t as nice as Apple-Tini Fizz though. It smelled kind of like grapefruit, if you were to spray your fruit with Windex.
Despite the somewhat sketchy scent, I liked the baby pink color of Grapefruit Fizz a lot. The multi-toned large glass flecks really complement this jelly. This was also four coats.
I have mixed feelings about these scented polishes by Revlon. When I scratched the stickers on each polish I enjoyed the way they smelled, on my nails it was hit or miss. Apple-Tini Fizz has a nice scent to it but it is so sheer that I can’t really wear it by itself. Grapefruit Fizz has the coverage I want but the scent drives me slightly mad. I wish I could combine the better elements of each into one polish! I think I’ll give it one more try to see if the Watermelon Fizz one I saw there is more to my liking.
Also, do NOT do what I did and smell the polish straight out of the bottle and expect it to smell like fruit. That was probably one of the more dense things that I’ve done in a while.
Revlon polishes usually retail for anywhere between $4.49 – $5.99/each for a .5 fl oz bottle. You can purchase them at any local drugstore or major retailer (Walgreens, CVS, Target, Wal-Mart, etc.) nationwide.
