Nails of the Day – Color Club Raspberry Rush

When I was at Professional Beauty this week I found a stand selling 2 Color Club nail polishes for £5, so I indulged in 4 of the beauties. The first one I thought I’d try is Raspberry Rush from the previous collection of scented nail polishes – the Wicked Sweet Collection. I already have Gimme a Grape Big Kiss, which I love, so figured this would be just as good.

It is!

It’s a lovely bright jelly pink, verging on neon but it doesn’t seem to have that white base to it that a lot of neons do. It applies super-smoothly and two coats left it opaque. You do have to be careful when doing the second coat that you paint all over the nail again, as if not, I realised the difference in the two coats is really visible.

My favourite thing about it is the smell – Raspberry Rush would lead you to believe it was raspberry scented, but to me, it smells exactly like a bubble gum I used to have – it doesn’t smell of bubble gum, just *that* bubble gum… it came in individual pink packets and had a juicy bit in the middle… if anyone knows what I mean, please let me know! {update: Bubaloo! Thank you Rachel!} My son thought they were a bit cherryish, which I agree with – not synthetic cherry (bleurgh!) but proper cherry-cherry! The smell isn’t too strong – you can’t smell it all the time, but every time I bring my hands to my face I get a pleasant reminder!

For £2.50, I’m a very happy lady!
