Nail Polishes that smell good

Wow talk about a eloquent name for a blog post! Two 2014 additions to the Models Own Fruit Pastels range are Models Own Coconut Cream & Models Own Peach Melba. A duo of on trend shades in suitably summery scents. I’ll admit I didn’t like the Fruit Pastel Collection - I found most of the scents really synthetic, overbearing and just… gross. However I admit I really like the Coconut Cream polish. It doesn’t smell too synthetic and quite a light coconut scent rather than a overbearing one. The tops of the polishes have a “try before you buy” scratch and sniff patch which I think is a nice touch, even though I dont think the polish smells as nice as the scratch n' sniff. Dry time is average and both polishes need two coats to give opacity. The scent is subtle and unobtrusive, you can smell it there but not too much.

Although Im not 100% sold on the idea of scented polishes - Not a fan of gimmicks like this! But they are pretty nice shades and the scents are a nice addition. If you want your talons to smell good then like all Models Own Nail polishes these retail for £5 each. Exclusive to the Models Own Bottle Shops and online.

  1. They're definitely gorgeous colours! Although I'm soooo not a fan of coconut so won't be trying these out for myself. How do they swatch?

  3. I love Models Own but I always have trouble applying the nail polish, they're so thick! Don't you find yourself with the same problem?

  6. I think Models own polishes are a bit of hit or miss for me. Sometimes their formulation gets quite gloopy and difficult to apply. However, I am intrigued by their cocounut scented shades though. Loving that peachy shade :)

    Thank you for sharing, I hope you have a lovely day ♥

  15. Ahhh the scratch part is very cool! Too bad they're a bit disappointing but it's a start! Revlon also made some lovely smelling nailpolishes :)

  17. I'm not really sold on the whole scented nail varnish thing, not many people get close enough to my nails to sniff them but Peach Melba is such a nice shade and I'm a sucker for anything coconutty! xx

  19. I absolutely LOVE scented nail polish.. probably because it reminds me of being 5 when I bought my first grape scented polish.. I loved it to bits!

  21. You should try the Revlon ones! They smell very nice and natural, the scent also lasts for a few days so you get a whiff of that whenever you wave your hands around.
