This is a first for me. I have never used a scented nail polish before and was wondering how it would work out. I only picked up Raspberry Rapture, but they have a bunch of other scents/colors to choose from. The above picture was taken after two coats of Raspberry Rapture outside without flash.
When wet the nail polish does not have scent, but once it dries you can notice the scent easily. It’s nothing over powering though and chances are only you will smell it unless you have people sniffing your fingers?! The scent reminded me of the scented markers from back in elementary school. Which I don’t mind. Than the real test came just how long would the scent last for? I’m a busy mama and my hands are always cleaning something so, I was wondering if the scent would fade quickly. To my surprise it still had a the raspberry scent a week later.
Little Tip: I found some at my local dollarama over the last couple months, so if you want to try them out for $2 head over and see what they have.
Wet n Wild – Wild Shine #C402 is a light bubble gum pink
Wet n Wild – Wild Shine #469 is a clear coat packed with light colorful sparkles
I used 2 coats of both polishes to get the above look. Simple, but still pretty. You can’t go wrong with some sparkle in your life.
My Nails of the day are inspired by cotton candy. I don’t own a aqua, teal, or anything close to the color I needed, but I did have a eyeshadow pigment that was the exact color I was wanting. So I decided to come up with my own DIY nail color. It was pretty simple and I’m happy with the results.
What you need
- Clear Nail Polish ( I used a bottle that was half gone)
- Fine Color Pigment ( I used an eyeshadow pigment)
- Small Funnel
- Extra – If you want you could add in fine glitter if that’s the look your going for
All you need to do it mix the pigment into the clear nail polish and close the lid and shake. Simple. If you use less pigment you will have more of a translucent color and use more for a brighter more opaque result. With the aqua color I made above I only needed 2 coats to get a nice even result.
*No DBP, toluene or formaldehyde*
Ink a Dink a Pink from Nicole by OPI is a bright pink with a hint of purple shimmer. It looks fine with even one coat applied, but in the above picture I have 2 coats. It goes on easy and doesn’t leave any streaks. It has a nice shine to it and dries fast.
