Things I Don’t Do: Scented Nail Polish

By Glinda

Apparently scented nail polish is becoming a “thing.”


Because unless you spend all day with your hands cradling your face, I fail to see how scented nails could impact you in any way.

And to be honest, the thought of eating and having a scent wafting in my nostrils as I’m lifting my fork to my mouth is not at all appealing.

This is definitely one trend I won’t be following.

    I saw a scented nail polish in Sephora last week. I think it was Dior or YSL. Curious, I picked it up, opened it, and sniffed. The only scent I detected was that of regular old nail polish fumes.

    Ha! I wonder if nail polish manufacturers will ever figure out that the way to really win our hearts with the scent of a manicure is to eliminate the scents we associate with it all together. I don’t want my nail paint to smell like strawberries–I want it to smell of nothing. Also: I don’t want my nail paint remover to smell either, since the only scent memory it brings to mind are the dissection projects we had to go through in high school biology classes.

    I bought a couple of Revlon scented nail polishes, not because they were scented but because they were awesome neon colours that would look great under black crackle. One was turquoise with gold flecks and the other neon green; the first was supposed to smell like the ocean and the second like…well, I have no idea. The first smelled like the ocean for about twenty minutes and then stopped smelling like anything and the second never DID smell of anything, although it was supposed to.
