Have you ever had a pleasing reaction to something but were unable to articulate how it makes you feel because it makes absolutely no sense? For example, I love the smell of freshly opened tennis balls. I am fully aware that the smell shouldn’t be great, it’s hardly enticing on paper. If I had to describe it, I’d say it’s a musky, muddy, petroleum, rubbery odor. Sounds great, huh? Interestingly, there is a fraction of the population who, like me, loves this smell.

When you buy slime for the first time in its natural form, you might find its smell unpleasant. Although it’s dependent on your ingredients, the scent is usually a plastic and glue fragrance, if you can imagine what that would smell like. Not particularly pleasant. Although note that some would describe the smell as soapy and actually prefer it. If you’re sensitive to smells, you may dislike playing with slime that produces a scent you aren’t fond of. In order to enjoy your experience with slime, you will need to scent it up. There’s a variety of scents that are popular among slime including bubblegum, chocolate, strawberry, cotton candy, peppermint and coconut, among others. These scents are produced by essential oils and will blend easily with slime.

Nail art supplies can make excellent add ins for slime. The same style used in nail art can be incorporated in the decoration of slime. Nail art crystals of different shapes, whether squared, oval, triangular or circular in 3D can be included in the creation of slime as well. Nail art crystals can also be mixed with slime but be careful that they are not too sharp to poke into your hands while squishing it.
