Revlon Scented Nail Polish Review

Feel Young Again For Less Than Five Bucks

Some people eat madeleines and zoom back to childhood. Me? I paint my nails for that Proustian moment. While at Walgreens last week, I spotted a display of Revlon nail polish. But this wasn't any nail polish. Nope, this was scented nail polish in eight bright colors that remind me of Kool-Aid. (Oh yeah!)

When the polish is applied, there's nothing remotely fruity about the scent — just the unpleasant and familiar smell of varnish. When dry, however, the polish reveals a chemically "fruity" scent almost identical to that of the Mr. Sketch scented markers I played with as a kid. Just one whiff of my freshly manicured nails transported me back to my marker-sniffing days. That was fun for a moment, but my nose is extremely sensitive, so I had a nasty headache within 15 minutes. (I'll use the polish only for pedicures from here on out.) As long as you can handle a little fake-fruit smell, the polish's $4.50 price is an extremely budget-friendly way to feel like a kid again.
