Review: Tuff Scent Wish & Stardust

It's a bit hard to believe that a nail polish hoarder/junkie, such as myself, does not own a single scented nail polish! Crazy, right?! 

 A few days ago, I was contacted by Tuff Scent offering some samples of their nail polishes. I immediately said yes and chose Wish & Stardust to feature on my blog. I guess there's a reason I've been holding out on scented nail polish! I was waiting for you, Tuff Scent! ;) 

Here is a little background info, just in case you are new to this brand!
Reno, Nevada (July 19th, 2011) – Lisa Arnbrister and 18 year old daughter, Sylvana Barbash, have relaunched ‘Tuff Scent’ scented nail polish and this time they’ve added a charitable edge. The brand which has been previously carried by reputable stores such as Sephora, Nordstrom’s, Saks fifth Avenue, Fred Segal, Planet Blue and so on, will now donate $1.00 of every bottle sold to breast cancer awareness in a commemorative effort to support the cure.
‘Tuff Scent’ was originally founded in 1996 by Lisa Arnbrister. The scented polish became an overnight global sensation retailing at 2,000 stores worldwide. 

Wish & Stardust


Wish 
2 Coats - No TC over CG Liquid Leather


Wish 
2 Coats - No TC over CG White on White
Wish is a clear based nail polish infused with opalescent hex glitters. The scent this polish gives off is Pear. It smells D-I-V-I-N-E!  I was very pleased with the way the glitter evenly distributed on my nails. The formula was perfect and application was a breeze. It is slightly similar to China Glaze Snow Globe.



Stardust
3 Coats - No TC
Stardust is a combination of both fine silver and holo glitters suspended in a clear base. The scent is Ocean Breeze, which is the perfect crisp, clean scent. Application was effortless and the glitters were evenly distributed. Since the formula is a bit sheer, you may want to add a silver base to help speed the process. Nonetheless, it's worth all the effort!

Final Thoughts:
both polishes are winners in my book! I want to emphasize more on the scent. Tuff Scent claims an average of 24-72 regarding how long the fragrance will last. From my experience, yes, it did live up to it's claims. I will say that the first two days are the strongest and the third day still lingers.

While wearing these polishes, I couldn't help but smelling my fingers- people must have thought I was crazy! ;) Pear is a sweet scent and Ocean Breeze is a crisp, clean scent. I love the fact that the scent isn't too overbearing and not the least bit artificial smelling. 
  
20 new colors/scents, which retail for $14.00, have already become a favorite of celebrities such as Vanessa Hudgens. The unique line is available now at the company website www.tuffscent.com and can also be found at www.shopfinenfunky.com.

As always, hope this helps & happy shopping!

Do you own any Tuff Scent polishes? Thoughts?! I'd love to know down below!

  7. I ordered Wish quite some time ago, though I forget how I happened upon the brand. I absolutely love it!
    I'm definitely going to be buying more polishes from them in the near future.
    I also love that the scent isn't chemical at all, which I find a lot of them to be.
