Pink Wednesday: Revlon Bubble Gum

Hi everyone :D

I'm sooo glad, tomorrow will be our National Day here in Belgium, so I'm on a short holliday ^^ I really need some rest !

In summer 2010, Revlon brought us a collection of scented polish, Scents of Summer. They only arrived in Belgium some weeks ago, so for me that's something new :p
Though the shades are not unique at all, I was curious about wearing a perfumed polish ! I had one when I was 15 and it was funny, but never saw something like that 'til the Revlon collection.

As I just wanted to try one (don't want to have many basic shades dupes), I chose Bubble Gum. It's a hot and bright pink, very nice color for summer (and any other season for people who don't care, like me lol).



As you can see, it's sheer :( I used three coats and Seche Vite for the pictures, and you can still see vnl. You know how much I dislike that >< It doens't seem so important in the pics but in real, in full sunlight, you really notice it.

Anyway, Bubble Gum has a good and easy application but doesn't dry really fast. I prefered to add some Seche Vite before I go to bed :p

Now, what I'm sure you all want to know the most: what about the scent ? :D

I think it's really a funny thing. It has a sweet scent of bubble gum but not too loud, you don't smell it if you don't approach nails of your face. It also stays if you use a top coat, I was glad to note that :p

On the bad side, it didn't smell anything 24 hours later :s

Sooo, I wasn't convinced by this polish and won't buy the other colors, if I want another scented polish I'll prefer to try the Color Club Wicked Sweet 'cause they have more original colors (at least, shades I don't have a lot in my stash lol)

But it's still pretty and has a good quality, so if you want to give it a try, why not :)

What do you think ? have you ever tried scented polish ?

Have a nice day :)
