Fruity Fizz 3: Revlon Sweetly Seductive Scented Polish

[Revlon Sweetly Seductive Orange Fizz and Pineapple Fizz]

Here's the continuation of our Revlon Sweetly Seductive Scented swatches, with Orange Fizz and Pineapple Fizz up next!

Orange Fizz looks even more brilliant in person. It's an orange jelly, densely filled with gold and red-gold flakes and microglitters.

 The polish when applied on nails are pretty close to what you'll see in the bottle.

Aaahhh, it really is pretty! It's an eye-catching shade, especially with all that shiny flakes and glitters. I didn't use a fast dry topcoat for these mani.

The flakes and glitter do make for a very shiny look, especially since they're lighter than the orange base so they stand out more.

With these polishes, scent obviously plays an important part too!

JME: I liked this fruity, cytrusy scent when I was applying the polish on my nails. But the longer I could smell them on my nails, the more I was reminded of this horrible orange-flavoured cough syrup I had to take as a child. So as a personal reason, I felt myself disliking the scent until it faded after a couple days to a bearable, light scent.

EV: This is pretty good! It smells like orange-flavoured Tang! I think it's possibly my second favourite scent of the lot? The citrusy kick stops it from being too candy-sweet.

Hello, hello, delicious yellow jelly filled with yellow and gold-ish flakes and microglitter! Yellow jelly with flakes? Not something you see everyday!

What you see in the bottle will be pretty close to what you'll get on your nails. I think the density of the flakes made the polish looked a little more lemon yellow than the colour in the bottle, which I quite like actually.

While the flakes are really dense, the base is definitely still sheer enough that at four coats, the nail tips are visible. But it was what I was expecting, and I don't think it takes away from the pretty that is the polish.

Yellow flakes everywhere! My indoor picture was too washed out so have a bonus random outdoor photo:

I took this picture while sacrificing my dignity, since a couple people stared at me snapping a photo of my own nails. :P  TOTALLY WORTH IT!

I don't know if it's the novelty of having a yellow polish with yellow flakes, but I really like this colour. It's so shiny and cheerful.

What do our olfactory systems tell us about Pineapple Fizz?

JME: It's not the smell of fresh pineapple of course (none of the collection smell like fresh fruits). It's more like the sweet scent of processed pineapple, and it makes me feel a little peckish for some sugary treat. It's rather nice to have on my nails!

EV: This definitely smells like pineapple! I haven't smelt it on my nails, only a paper swatch so I can only give an opinion on that. To me, it's got a bit of that syrupy scent you get from canned pineapples, but the pineapple tang keeps it from being too sweet. Not bad at all!

Overall, I really like Orange Fizz and Pineapple Fizz. I don't know if it's because I don't have that many orange and yellow polishes, but I think they're interesting, cheery colours to have with flakies.
