Every woman loves to have a fresh coat of nail varnish painted on to her talons. Whether it’s to match your new outfit, or simply to perk you up on a miserable day, nail varnish is a serious style saviour. And now those clever nail varnish scientists (we like to imagine them in their lab coats painting each other’s toe nails) have added fresh scents to make your nail painting an even more enjoyable experience.
Revlon’s Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel Collection made us feel a bit like a kid in a candy store; there are so many colour and smell combos to choose from. In keeping with the grey and drizzly weather the Espresso is perfect for this time of year. The jet black polish looks classy with any outfit, and the espresso scent made us want to run to the nearest coffee shop. The deep red shade Bordeaux smelt gorgeous, and again is the perfect hue for the winter days. But we also thought we’d look ahead to more spring-like shades, and loved the pink floral scented African Tea Rose which smelled as sweet as it looked. With 20 shades in the collection your nails will both look, and smell, fabulous this season.
Models Own also do a great range of fragranced themed polishes. The Fruit Pastel range features five pastel colours that are bang on trend, and each feature a Scratch N’ Sniff top with sweet smells. We’re lusting after the baby pink shade, that gives off a Strawberry Tart aroma when you scratch the top of the bottle.
And when your nail varnish chips and is ready to be removed, the smelling fun doesn’t need to stop. Ciaté’s Chocolate Scented Nail Polish Removers do exactly what it says on the tin. Gone are the days of overpowering nail varnish removers that pollute your nostrils as you scrub away any remnants of old colour. Ciaté’s chocolate collection infuses delicious scents of white, dark, mint and orange chocolate into their nail varnish remover, giving a feast for your senses (well your nose anyway). It also makes sure it nourishes nails while gently removing nail polish.
So instead of just going through the motions when next painting your nails, use a fun and fabulous scented option. Fragrances fingers are all the rage this season.
