Color Club The Lime Starts Here

Quickie post today! Lost of things going on around here (some good and some bad) and I really should be getting ready for work but...well. You're more important! Remember how Mr. Kitty ordered me polish for Valentine's Day? This is another of those polishes, this one from the scented Sweet Temptations Collection by Color Club.

The Lime Starts Here is a pretty standard lime neon green (and yum, I love neon green!) that has a sweet sugary scent, very candy-like. Skittles came to mind when I put this on-- the candy, of course! I worried about the scent because some of these scented-type polishes are too strong and give me a headache, but this one didn't bother me at all.

I used three coats of polish with a base and top coat, but no "underwear" polish. Application was a little streaky on the first coat but the second coat settled nicely and the third coat was to build opacity.

There's probably a dupe for this color out there, possibly even one from Color Club. They have a great line of neons. The real draw to this one is the fun of wearing a scented polish. Of course, after a day of wearing it I just couldn't leave it alone and...

...yeah, Mr. Kitty got me Crackle polishes too! I still wanted unadulterated green so I left one nail as an accent. After applying the crackle and another layer of top coat, you could still smell The Lime Starts Here. (Once it dried, I mean. Please don't sniff your wet top coat! xD)

What do you think, yay or nay for scented polish?
