In a Pineapple Under the Sea?

So, I’ve been eyeing Revlon’s new Parfumerie nail polish. It comes in a very cute little bottle; it looks like something you might find in a French drugstore.

Revlon claims that this polish is “scented.” (Didn’t we already go through a scented nail polish craze? Like, in the late 90’s and early 00’s?)

I DO give Revlon an A+ for scent. I purchased “Pink Pineapple,” a pale pink shade. And after the polish dries, it really does smell like a tropical vacation. The scent lasted several days, and every time I scratched my nose, I got a nice lil’ whiff of pineapple.

Sadly, the polish started chipping in less than 24 hours, and by day two, some nails were missing their polish completely.

It would be great product if you just wanted to use it for a one-time special event (prom, wedding, first date). But the product doesn’t have any real staying power.*

*I do not use base and/or top coats. Using two coats of the regular polish already tests my patience level. Maybe this polish would work better as 3-step set.

If you have better luck, let me know!

A Lovely Bit of Muffin.

Get your mind out of the gutter, silly gooses.

The title refers to a scene from the Ricky Gervais/Stephen Merchant comedy “Extras.” (Watch it if you haven’t. Not as good as “The Office,” but still sublime.)

Why all the muffin talk, Bree? Because I found a leave-in hair treatment that smells EXACTLY LIKE POPPY SEED MUFFINS.

SERIOUSLY.

DermOrganic’s leave-in treatment leaves hair soft, shiny, is a heat protectant, and repairs damaged hair. You can find the entire DermOrganic at Ulta or online here.
