#mommysmanimonday: Scented Polish

Our theme this week over at Mommy’s Mani Monday was scented polish. We could either use scented polish/topcoat/whatever or if you didn’t have a scented polish, create a theme that evokes a scent, like flowers or fruit. I happen to own one scented polish, so my path was pretty clear!

I started off this mani by painting 3 coats of Revlon – Wintermint (part of the parfumerie line) on all of my nails. I topped it with Seche Vite and allowed them to dry completely.

It is at this point where my dilemma arose. I really wanted to do a winter theme to go with the name/fragrance of my polish, but I needed these to be wearable for a few days. Being sensible won out lol. Wintermint is a near dupe for Deborah Lippmann – Mermaid’s Dream, so I decided to just do a basic, mermaid inspired stamp. I used Bundle Monster plate BM-XL24 and stamped with Funky Fingers – Dark Knight. A final coat of Seche Vite and I was done.

I always love mermaid nails and I was happy with how these turned out, even if they aren’t exactly what I had originally envisioned!

Absolutely beautiful! I wear crazy manis to work all the time. I can only polish twice a week, so whatever I do for the blog, I wear! (I’m not sure if that is why you needed it to be wearable ;))

Pretty mani but for me scented polish is a no go as it makes me feel sick x

So pretty!!! I have so many of Revlon’s scented polishes (I love the bottle shape lol) but the scent makes them near impossible to wear 😛
