Revlon Parfumerie ~ Spun Sugar Swatch

It's half-assed swatch time!  My nails look pretty bad about 90% of the time but I wanted to share this neato nail polish with you anyways! 

Revlon recently came out with a line of scented nail polishes.  I'm still a bit confused on how many are available, I keep seeing different displays.  Shoppers Drug Mart had 16 I believe, so I snagged 7 of them.  I'll be completely honest, I bought most of them for their supposed smell.  Like Spun Sugar.  It's just a silver.  BUT A SMELLEH ONE!  Good smelly. Autumn Spice I bought for both looks and smell and I hope to half-ass swatch that one soon too.

I used 2 coats and it went on nicely.  There was a bit of a bald spot on one of my thumbnails but the good thing about light reflecty nail polish, is you can't see it unless you are super close up or aim the bottom of your nail toward a light source.

THE SMELL.  This is the best part.  I see everyone describe this one but I don't think anyone has pointed out the obvious yet (obvious to me, that is.) Spun Sugar smells just like Thierry Mugler's Angel perfume!  It's not wicked strong but I love it.

Now here's a 1 shot swatch of my scented phalanges.  Click to make bigger.

I was so happy to find these I forgot how much they were....  I think they were $7.99/ea CDN.
Unfortunately I can't comment on wear.  I'll be stripping this off in about a day to try one of the other ones out because I'm impatient :)  So far so good.  These are nothing like those crappy scented polishes from Claire's that peel off in 30 minutes.
