Models Own Apple Pie

16:22




I know these Model's Own scented polishes have been around for a while now and I've never really been sucked in by the hype around them before.  Maybe because I'm a bit skeptical, but I just don't see how you can get rid of that potent nail polish scent.  Anyhow, as mint green is one of my favourite pastel shades I thought I'd give this one a try as it looked quite a nice shade compared to others I already own, not too pale like Essie's Mint Candy Apple and not too green like Barry M's Mint Green.

Upon first opening the bottle I got the usual whiff of nail polish but after applying the first coat I started to notice a different scent.  I can't say I love it but it's not altogether unpleasant, just a bit more soapy than I was expecting.  With a name like Apple Pie I think I was just expecting a more fruity smell and to me it smells more like soap with a hint of apple.  The scent is not overpowering at all and only really lingers for a couple of hours, but I suppose it is better to have a lingering smell of soapy apples on your fingers than the lovely stench of nail polish.  But like all other Model's Own nail polishes it applies nicely and easily, although I did notice that it did seem to take a little longer to dry than the normal Model's Own polishes.  Whether this is an effect of the ingredients used to create the scent I do not know, but even after almost 20 minutes if I touched it I was left with a slight fingerprint imprinted into it.  As I love the shade this is really it's only serious downfall, as I am the kind of person who likes to paint and go.

Have you tried any scented nail polishes before?  I'm really tempted by the new Revlon Parfumerie collection, they look lovely.

  15. Gosh it sounds lovely. I haven't come across this scented nail polish before but I'm definitely intrigued if it covers that horrible chemical smell! You can't go wrong with a mint nail polish really can you? perfection. xx

  20. Haven't tried any scented new polishes, I don't really care for the scent haha :) I'm also sort of the "paint and go" girl, so there's no way that I can deal with a polish that takes so long to dry. The color is fabulous though!

  22. This shade is stunning on you! I really love Models Own polishes and I like the name of this one, oh so cute <3

    Shame about the scent, I must say every time I've tried a scented polish they haven't made much of an impression on me either xo
