What we say:
Shade: Hot White Love
I am slightly obsessed with the white nail polish trend at the moment. I find it is just such a classic look that goes with any outfit. I have always loved Rimmel nail polishes – they are a good size for the price and the brush ensures quick and easy application.
For the white nail look, I always ensure that I have cut my nails short and filed them into a square shape, as I find this is the best option for this nail colour. What I loved most about the Rita Ora Nail Polish in White Hot Love is that it was a brilliant shade of white – it really stands out, especially after 2 coats. I finished off with a topcoat to ensure a fast dry. I did find that the nail polish didn’t dry as fast as I expected, but I do always apply a base coat, 2 coats of colour and topcoat, which probably hindered the quick drying process a bit. Also, I was slightly disappointed with the wear of this nail polish. After 3 days is started to chip and there were visible cracks.
Overall this is a good product – easy application, great colour, it is just a pity about the longevity once applied. But there are great shades available, so I would definitely give the other colours a try.

Shade: Let’s Get Nude
When it comes to nail polish, I tend to lean more towards bolder shades and I rarely paint my nails in a nude shade. That being said, if I am going to paint my nails nude, it has to be a particularly beautiful nude.
When I saw the Rita Ora Let’s Get Nude nail polish shade, I was impressed and holding thumbs that the shade would be as pigmented on the nails. With nude nail polish I often find that 2 coats is not enough to create a non-streaky finish, yet the Rita Ora Let’s Get Nude looked perfect after just 2 coats.
After applying my top coat I waited patiently for it to dry and was slightly disappointed that it didn’t dry as quickly as the name suggests. Let’s be honest though, no nail polish dries in 60 seconds?
I was very impressed with the high shine formula of the nail polish and loved the end results! The nail polish lasted almost a week on my nails before it started chipping, so I would definitely consider trying other shades in the collection.
