Scented nail polish – who knew there was such a thing?

I mean, you don’t generally go up and ask someone to smell your finger, do you?

But what if a gentleman wants to kiss your hand, or you touch your boyfriend’s face? Then these tropical scented polishes are perfect.

I love the novelty when I’m doing my nails as the scent is better than the usual polish aroma. It makes painting my nails more fun.

I’m still obsessed with all things orange, so tangerine is my favourite, but the pineapple is perfect for summer.

How do you feel about scented nail polishes? What’s your favourite fragrant polish?

Illamasqua UV Glow Nail Polishes

Make a statement with these Illamasqua polishes that glow neon under ultra violet light.

You really need to see these polishes in action and I just love this manicure by Lucy’s Stash featuring Ouija, a pretty pink that turns neon under black lights.

Loving…Pink and Orange Neons

I’ve loved pink and orange as a colour combination ever since I was little. It’s not a conventional favourite, but it makes me happy. Especially when it’s neon bright!

Nails Inc Notting Hill Gate is a rosy pink neon, with medium shine that is opaque in two coats.

Hello Darling Teenage Dream a true highlighter pink creme that is opaque in one coat, though I’ve painted two coats here.

Hello Darling Love on Top is a vibrant hi-vis orange creme that is opaque in one coat, and super-bright in two.

Orly Holla is slightly darker than Love on Top, though still packs a neon punch. Almost opaque in one coat and fully in two. It had a slightly matte finish.

All polishes shown with two thin coats and finished with Hello Darling top coat.

Yes, I wore them all at once and I make no apologies for mismatching fluoro nails.
