NOTD Revlon Scented Nail Polish Beach

Another day, another scented nail polish.

As part of the 2 for £8 offer I also picked up "Beach". Mainly because I was intrigued as to what beach should smell like (I'd love a scratch and sniff label on the bottle) and also the colour looked like it might be fun for the summer.

The photos show 1 coat to 3 coats.

Again the polish takes quite a bit of building up for colour which is a bit disappointing. The polish itself is quite watery but applies easily and dries relatively quickly. The colour isn't too bad - a sort of lemony lime green with a touch of metallic. I think it would work nicely as a base for some nail art or a crackle top coat too. A solid base coat of a nude or white polish could help things along too.

The major disappointment of this though was... the smell. It's um... I'm not sure how to describe it. It seems stronger than the Peach Smoothie reviewed previously. I guess I can't complain as well, what should it smell of?! But it smells like a weird fruity shampoo with a hint of plastic. Not overly pleasant if I'm honest. And while the colour is a bit of fun I can't find anything special about it and if anything the scent is pretty off putting. I doubt I'd repurchase.

Have you tried this one? Will you be trying any of the others?
