Revlon Parfumerie Apricot Nectar Scented Nail Polish Review

The Revlon Parfumerie nail polishes have recently hit the shelves in Australia. They are something a little different as they are scented nail polishes and to be honest I haven't come across any drugstore scented polishes before. The range itself is very extensive and contains three categories; the Fruits & Florals, Sweets & Spices and the Freshes. I found it very difficult to pick only two to buy but eventually I decided and Apricot Nectar is one of the lucky ones that got to come home with me.



Apricot Nectar is from the Fruits & Florals section of the range and is a very pretty orange based peach creme that somehow manages to be a pastel bordering on neon.Does that even make sense? I found the first coat to be quite streaky but a second coat seemed to fix most of the problems. Next time I will probably go for three coats though because the drying time of this polish is so great that an extra coat is no worries.

When I was painting my nails the polish smelt very sweet and a bit fruity. The scent continued to hang around once my nails dried, even after washing. After a day of wearing the polish the scent is less noticeable. From reading other blogs I decided not to wear a top coat (as I had read that this might interfere with the whole scent thing). Without a top coat you can get 2-3 days of wear before tip wear starts to appear, which is pretty decent. Colour me impressed!

Apricot Nectar is a beautiful peachy orange creme polish with a good formula (although a little streaky), good drying time and is accompanied by a yummy sweet fruit scent that lasts days. Overall I really love this polish and can see myself wearing a lot.

  2. Such cute bottles! Rimmel had (or still have, I'm not sure) scented polishes as well.

  6. Can you please share your secret to getting it look this way?! Ive tried three times, mine is streaky and I tried four coats with ten minutes drying time between coats. This is the only one out of the ten colours I have that is horrible i'm quite sad!
