You want to smell my finger?

LOL ewwww!  I promise it smells good though ...

Revlon - Cotton Candy

I can't remember, but I'm pretty sure this was 3 coats.  The formula was nice for me.

I think it looks so cute on short nails.

This is a basic light pink, but in full sunlight you can see the golden shimmer. 

 But otherwise it looks pink.
 In the shade the shimmer is harder to see.

I also love this one for longer nails.  It's light, pink and girly.

As a bonus it smells delicious. If you're not a fan of sweet things this can get a little nauseating especially if your fingers are constantly near your nose.  

The smell sticks around even with topcoat, but definitely gets less pungent as the days go by.

Are you a fan of smelly polish?


  1. I don't have any scented polish (don't know why) and I like naturally chemical smell when lacquering ;)
    Cotton Candy is really pretty! ♡

  2. Haha, ewww. :o) I'm not a fan of smelly polishes, they give me headaches, but this colour is really lovely, it suits you well!

  3. Beautiful polish! I'm such a sucker for pink. :)
    I don't have any scented polishes, but I think I'd love it if my nails smelled yummy! :)

  4. Oh Loodie, you had me laughing! My husband says that to me to wind me up!! "Oi, come 'ere and smell my finger" lol!

  5. >.< Ugh I have the Grape scented one and I tried it once and nearly puked.

  6. I don't know how I feel about scented polish...but the shade is pretty - love the subtle shimmer - so I might get over myself for that reason alone :) And as I don't wear polish for more than 3-4 days usually, I'd likely not get too sick of the scent anyway!

  7. LMAO @ the title. I actually want to smell your finger though; I like Revlon's scented polishes. And I love these soft type of colors on your nails!

  8. You had me worried there for a minute! :P

  9. Thank goodness you're back! I was afraid you'd done a "Lacquerized" on us. :(
    Love the color, but I cannot stand even the idea of perfumed polish. I'm afraid it would make me ill.

  10. This is such a cute pink. I want to purchase this so bad. I see them all the time but I never get a chance to get any.

  11. I had to write...I stumbled across your blog, and I LOVE IT!!! I will make myself a cup of tea and sit down to read (and enjoy) every single post..(glad you started fairly recently else I would probably grow roots to my!) Even though I don't have and never had any nail issues, I still stand to learn TONS! Thank you, thank you, thank you! (no chair grabbing needed!) oh yeah....welcome to the blogging community! (adding you to my blogroll now!) xox

  12. @Boruvk_a - I know! At this point I crave the smell of ethyl acetate in the morning lol

    @AmyGrace - very true, they can be annoying. Thank god when normal polish dries the solvent smell goes away.

    @FOREVER '92 - I think so tooo!

    @Solveig - Really? Oh definitely if you come across one snag it up and see what you think!

    @Ash-Lilly - LOL, our husbands must come from the same breed.

    @Rachel Marie - Oh man synthetic grape smells always make me want to yack too. It never smells (or tastes) like the real thing. Was it at least pretty? - that sounds like a perfect plan :)!

    @ChaosButterfly - LOL, omg if I ever see you on campus I will shove my fingers in your nose. Thanks!!

    @Breigh - mission accomplished

    @Sinead - Oh no girl! Just traveling for work. Thank you! This one is seriously sweet, so stay away! lol

    @Toyomi - I would definitely buy more IF I liked the color enough (even if I had a dupe of the color already) because it adds a little something to the experience. - Hell yeah girl! I LOVE hearing that. mmmm you mention tea, now i want some ... okay totally off on a tangent ... anyway, come back and enjoy :) YAY!!!! <3

  13. I dunno if I wanna smell it and I certainly don't want to pull it but nice color!

  14. Okay Olivia, but if you need me to clear a room, I'm hear for ya.
