Simple Pleasures Scented nail polish set review.

I got a few requests and questions about the scented nail polish set I bought from TKmaxx.
I need to disappoint you- It is totally rubbish! The nail polishes are meant to be scented with melon, mint, cherry, mango and pineapple... They don't smell of anything except a strong nail varnish odour. Once applied and dry I still couldn't smell anything at all! Weird...
Another problem- one of the bottles was damaged, I was going to open it and the neck of the bottle snapped! I am not Incredible Hulk and I didn't break a glass bottle with my fingers. It must have been broken already, as there was some dried up nail polish on the bottle. I was all excited about the melon scent etc... just to find out it doesn't exist...
All the colours are lovely, especially mint and pink, the formula is ok, but the wow factor is missing.
I bought this set for £3.99, I found it online here for $12.
Have you ever tried scented nail polish? What was your experience?

  1. Hey I have tried scented Rimmel nail polish, it was cranberry and at first it only smelt of nail polish but after it dried I could definitely smell cranberry, it didn't last all that long though and tbh with you it was novel but slightly pointless. I'm sorry your ones didn't work out, although the colours look really cute :).

  5. Aww its such a shame that they didn't smell nice when you was expecting them to be! I must say that the colours look really pretty though and for the price its not too bad.

  11. I hate it when you buy something and it either breaks or isnt what you expected. Its such a shame you experienced both!
    However, the nail varnishes are lovely colours :) Perfect for summer!
