None of the quick dry colors grabbed me, but two of the scented ones caught my eye. Even better was that Rite-Aid was having a buy 1 get 1 50% off - score! I grabbed a frosty teal - Ocean Breeze and a shimmery violet - Not So Blueberry. I was curious as to what these smelled like.
First up - Ocean Breeze. This one is a bright frosty teal. The application was slightly streaky, and created some bald spots, but they were easy fixed with a second coat. The finish of the polish left brushstrokes, though.
These pictures are all two coats with no base or top coat.
It did actually have a scent once it dried. You could actually smell it mixed in with normal nail polish smell once you opened the bottle. It was a synthetic and sweet berry, like smelling a Life Saver. You really had to bring your fingers up to your nose and sniff. Frankly, that won't be happening much. I can see my co-workers looking at me sideways as they watch me smell my fingernails.
The second color I picked up was Not So Blueberry. I actually really liked this color. It was a violet color with lilac and teal shimmer suspended in it. Unfortunately, the color really didn't photograph well - it was coming out way too blue. This one smelled like a synthetic blueberry.
