Revlon Scented GUMDROP


There's one downside to scented nail polish....smelling your fingers in public makes you look like you have just picked at your bum and need to smell to see if you scratched a bit too far in......get the picture?

This is Revlon's Gumdrop, a very pale lavender purple that comes out on the grey side.  These pictures are 3 coats and it was still patchy in places and definitely need at least another 1.  If I was to ever use this again, I would do a white base coat first.


Konading was with Warm Black using a chez-delaney and a Konad plate.  I couldn't top coat it as it would have taken away the smell...which in hindsight would have been a good thing cause at least then I wouldn't look like I've just scratched my bum walking down the street.

  5. Yep, you can put a top coat on it and scent still comes through.

    How do you get your stamping to look so freaking perfect? I mean, it's seriously FLAWLESS.

  8. Soraya. I forgot the scent part! It's not really a defined scent...more candy scented.

    Breeoxd. Cool bananas! Altho I dont think I'll be trying this one again for awhile..too many coats.

    Tati. Cleanup is your freind for Konading!

  13. I love this one! I usually do three thick coats and SV on top to avoid patchiness. Most Revlon's play really well with SV :) Sadly my mama liked this one just as much as me so I gave it to her and now I'm on the hunt for a second! *sniff sniff

    Loodie. LMK if you want this one...think I'll look for a thicker creme lavender.

    Faeirbex. It was T19 from chez-delaney and S6 from Konad.

    Glad I made you smile Court!
