Fruity Fizz 2: Revlon Sweetly Seductive Scented Polish

[Revlon Sweetly Seductive Grape Fizz and Watermelon Fizz]
This is Part 2 of our swatches for the Revlon Sweetly Seductive Scented collection, and it has been yummy so far! 

And let's start with Grape Fizz.

[In the bottle: Revlon Sweetly Seductive Grape Fizz]

Doesn't that look gorgeous and amazing? Grape Fizz is packed full of purple and blue small flakes with a scattering of dark pink flakes, and purple and blue microglitter. It looks rather dense and very shiny in the bottle.

Alas, I had such high hopes for you, Grape Fizz! </3

Oh, I'm kidding. I still really like the colour. But the dark purple with super sparklies in the bottle sets up a false expectation. It will be very difficult to get this polish to be opaque. You can see the difference between Grape Fizz on my nails versus in its bottle.

[Four coats: Revlon Sweetly Seductive Grape Fizz]
This is a terrible swatch because I was trying on my Cutex fast dry top coat...which is a joke. A terrible one. I might put up better photos in the future.

In any case, this is a Grape Fizz, at four coats, and it still has a visible nail line in person. So as long as you expect a purple jelly with flakes and microglitter, I think it's still quite lovely. And Grape Fizz's very jelly nature makes it perfect for gradient polishes, yaaaay!

Ah, still a lovely shiny purple. I could be just a little bit biased. I'm mad for purple polishes. :)

And what about the scent?

JME: It's a sweet scent that reminds me of grape soft drinks. I didn't find it overpowering, and I thought it was quite nice to catch a whiff of it every time my hands were near my face.

EV: I really liked this one initially but after smelling it on my nails for a bit, it just got too sweet for me.

Next up; Watermelon Fizz!

[In the bottle: Revlon Sweetly Seductive Watermelon Fizz]
[Bottle close-up: Revlon Sweetly Seductive Watermelon Fizz]
The name really suits the polish. It does look rather watermelon-like in the bottle when photographed under natural sunlight, with the flakes adding texture to it. In person and under indoor lighting, it is a lot shinier. It looks closer to the following:

This polish is a red jelly with heaps of small red flakies.

As you can see, the swatches are a pretty close match to the polish in the bottle. Oh, I'm using a Milani fast dry top coat over Watermelon Fizz here, so all is well with the world again.

[Three coats: Revlon Sweetly Seductive Watermelon Fizz]
It's quite close to opaque at three coats, with just a hint of VNL from certain angles. I really like the fiery colour, because it's work safe but the flakes give it that shiny, interesting edge.

The above picture captures the polish a little darker than it really is, but you can see the flakes here.

And here, we have the shininess caught under indoor lighting.

If you're reading our Question of the Week, you won't be surprised that Watermelon Fizz's scent is a hit with us!

JME: I loooooove it, more than I expected to for sure. It smells nummylicious, like watermelon candy, and it's a lovely scent to accompany me during manicure time and afterwards too!

EV: So delicious! What can I say.... I really love watermelon and watermelon-flavoured things and this is just like a watermelon lolly! My favourite scent of them all.

In my opinion, I find the scents of these polishes pleasant and they linger days after the first application. The scent fades a little after a few days of course, but it's still distinctively present after three/four days.

I'm really liking these polishes so far!
