Rimmel Lasting Finish Scented Nail Polishes ! ♥

Scented nail polishes anyone? 
When I first spotted these Rimmel Lasting Finish Scented Nail polishes at my local drugstore, I got really curious. Although quite random and unnecessary, I felt owning these scented nail polishes would be kind of fun. The colours are super pretty too. All of them are perfect for the summer season; the cranberry colour perfect for the fall/winter, and the rest would also look good in the Spring! So I purchased them all: Cranberry Zest, Apricot Punch, Lemon Drop, and Strawberry Fizz. Keep reading for my review and swatches! ♥

Out of all of the 4, I love Cranberry Zest and then followed by Apricot Punch and then Strawberry Fizz. Cranberry Zest applies so beautifully, very easy application with a glossy cream finish. It really smells of cranberries ♥ Apricot Punch is a a beautiful coral colour, which I'm addicted to this season. It also smells of apricots but not as strong as the other shades smell. Strawberry Fizz is pretty much your standard barbie pink colour, which smells of bubblegum or strawberries. Application of these two was alright but not as easy as Cranberry Zest. Lemon Drop however, was really difficult to use without it being so streaky. It reminds me of lemons, insect repellent or dishwashing liquid lol. The formula was really thick, which I did not like. Lovely pastel yellow colour though.

Here are swatches! All two coats without base and top coat. :)

Which one do you like best? Would you try these out? ♥

The scents of these nail polishes develop once they're dry, so if you do decide to check these out, don't be silly enough to try smelling them straight from the bottle! The standard nail varnish scent will just make you dizzy, like they did me lol! :P

  5. Lemon Drop is my least favorite, but I would enjoy its scent the most. So maybe it would be good for a movie date--holding hands in the dark. But then it would make me hungry and I'd end up spending a fortune at the concession stand.

  7. Apricot Punch And Lemon Drop are such cute colors! I own the other Rimmel nailpolish called Long Lasting Professional polish. Those have big brushes which I love. I wish these colors came in that bottle instead.

    I got the red color from Rimmel Lasting finish line. but it stained on my nails after I had removed the nail polish. Must use base coat!

  10. Oh my gosh I'd get all of these! The colours are so perfect *-* I think I like the second on the most though.. and I'd probably wear that one most often..

    Do they smell good? :S The idea of scented nail polish kinda makes me question if it still has the same smell, but with some sort of undertone... o.o;;

    Also, thank you for subscribing to my blog!
