So if you ever see me out and about and catch me with my fingers pressed against my nose, sniffing my fingernails while wearing a savory and satisfied look across my face after each inhalation, do not be alarmed. I’m just hooked on the sweet smell of Revlons Fizz scented nail polish and needed a fix of that delicious scent.
Ok, so I probably wouldn’t do that in public, but best believe I sniff away when I’m at home.
Scented nail polish seemed so preteen/high schoolish when I first heard about it. Even though some had adult sounding names like Mattese Elites Tequila Sunrise and Apple Martini polish from this summer, I wasn’t that interested. I knew Revlon had a scented nail polish line too, but I didn’t pay much attention to it either, until a few months back when I was perusing the nail polish aisles at Rite-Aid.
I saw this very colorful Revlon display, that had sets of lip gloss and matching nail polishes with names like Grapefruit Fizz, Watermelon Fizz and Apple-Tini Fizz. I was intrigued by the bright colors, and the fruity sounding names, and the fact that they had flecks of glitter. After noticing that they were scented, my niece and I proceeded to smell all of the polishes.
I wasn’t impressed. It didn’t smell like anything but nail polish!
I bought Colada Fizz anyway cause I liked the pale blue color, and later purchased Pineapple Fizz. After trying it at home, I noticed that it did in fact have a scent. If I would have taken the time to read the bottle in the first place, I would have noticed that it said it is scented after it’s dry.
As you can see they are pretty sheer and transparent. I only applied two coats, though I’ve seen other reviews with a darker color after applying several more coats. I prefer to just layer them over darker polish.
So let me break these down for y’all.
$4.79 @ Rite-Aid
Almost gel like. They apply pretty smoothly.
One coat dries in two minutes. Two coats completely hardens in about eight minutes, so 10 minutes total.
Smooth and glossy. The colors I purchased were very sheer. You could apply 3-4 coats, or as mentioned earlier layer them on top of other colors.
I can’t honestly say because I did wear these with other polishes, but it lasted a good five days before changing polish and I saw no chips.
I have noticed that with one coat, the scent lasts about 2-3 days, and two coats 4-5 days. Pineapple Fizz vaguely reminded me of pineapple. It had more of a general sweetness to it, but not over bearing. Colada Fizz definitely reminded me of pina colada.
I wish I had of purchased all eight of them at that time, cause when I went back they were all gone. I asked the store clerk when they would be back in stock, and she told me they were promotional and probably wouldn’t.
