Rimmel Salon Pro Polishes Rule

Sometimes I come across a product that I’m just itching to write a post about. Case in point: the Rimmel Salon Pro Polishes. Hot shades, a hell of a wide-brush and the hardiest varnishes I’ve tried. In fact I went six whole days (including a lot of maverick marigold-free washing up and housework) before things started to look a little raggedy and I required a repaint. The formula’s sorta gel-like, high-shine and some of the shades do need a third coat to reach an opacity level I’m happy with but they last, oh gawd do they last.

Hip Hop is the frontrunner at the moment – a pink laced coral, Summer Orange – a shade sister to CHANEL’s Holiday comes next, New Romantic and Peppermint, both still stunners trot at the back of the pack. Sandwiched between CND’s Stickey Base Coat and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I’ve never had any polish stay so pristine on my nails for so long. In fact, someone even asked where I had got my nails done; ‘In bed while watching The US Office’, was my reply.

£4.49 from all the usual Rimmel haunts; I’m pretty sure my stash won’t be capped at four colours for that long…
