Scented Nail Polish? See What Our Staffers Have To Say About It

by Lexy Lebsack

Would you wear scented nail polish? The usually-juvenile concept isn’t new—Dior’s done it, so has Sephora—but it’s having another big moment right now thanks to a range of 24 grown-up colors (and scents) arriving in drugstores from Revlon. Jennifer Lawrence’s scented polish-loving character in American Hustle piqued our curiosity, so we decided to do a test in our office.

The Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel ($6) comes in hues like African Tea Rose and Fresh Linen, and are infused with essential oils to deliver a subtle scent once dry. But what do they really smell like? How long does the scent last? What about the color? We enlisted eight of our staffers to experiment.
