rimmel cocktail colour

Monday, October 07, 2013
Finally! A drugstore/more affordable nail polish with a bigger brush! It seems like now you have to spend a massive £11 (which is ridiculous) to get a nail polish with a decent, wide brush. Wide brushes are so much easier to use as they coat more of the nail at once, rather than painting and painting the same place over and over, essentially ending in streaky nails.

The first thing that I noticed about this bottle is that Rimmel claim this nail polish needs only one coat for a full colour. I didn't find this to be the case, as shown in the image above. The bottom nail shows one coat, and the top has two. When it has one coat, it looks quite streaky and opaque, but the extra coat makes all the difference. It does, however, dry within 60 seconds which the bottle also claims.

The nail polish itself is one of Rimmel's new collections called 'Cocktail Colour'. The shade I bought was called Hawaiian Punch, and I'd describe it as a beautiful hot fuchsia with golden holographic pieces. It really isn't like any other polish in my collection, which is surprising considering I have hundreds of them! You can pick these up for a mere £3.99 in Boots and Superdrug.

  2. Rimmel nail polishes are lovely :) Although it is not opaque in one coat, that shade is very pretty xx
