Revlon just released a line of nail polishes in bright colors and summery fragrances, and the brave folks at Racked National took them for a spin. The verdict: "We were bowled over by how delicious and true-to-life they smell (when dry—try to resist the temptation to stick the bottle up your nose and inhale the wet fumes, since they're a little noxious). The shimmering, chartreuse Beach shade smelled fresh, like warm sand and tanning oil and everything named after a candy flavor pretty much smelled just as delicious. (Confession: They kind of make us drool.)" [RNA]
