My nails still smell like coconut dessert. If you know me, you know that isn't really a good thing because I only like dessert scents while I eat dessert. But if you like gourmand-esque olfactory flavouring, I can at least tell you the fragrance in Revlon's limited-edition Fruitful Temptations Scented Nail Enamel ($5.95 each) lasts more than 24 hours after it dries.
Available in eight shades -- Passionate Fruit, Sublime Strawberry, Raspberry Rapture, Pretty Papaya, Not So Blue-Berry, Mad About Mango, Mon Cherry and Coconut Crush -- the polish is the beauty version of those smelly markers we loved as kids, a rewind to childhood and totally fun (yes, even though I don't love the first scent I chose).
I confess, I didn't make the connection to fruit-scented felt-tips -- that came from E! Channel producer Ryan Emberley on the set of a summer-beauty segment shoot I was part of yesterday. I'd hoped to mention them on air, but we ran out of time (makeup artist Aniko Farkas did three hair-and-makeup looks for an under-two-minutes slot!). But you might spot them in a camera-pan of items on Friday at 7 pm on "E! Weekend."
The scented-polish drawback? There's something really weird and slightly gross about having folks smell your nails. Which reminds me, I'd better warn the staff not to do that. Anymore.
