What we say:
I tried shade “Urban Purple” and when it comes to bright colours the shade is fantastic! I absolutely adore it, and the nail polish itself is a great product as well. The precision maxi brush is amazing and the polish definitely lives up to the promised “gel shine finish.” Only issue I had with it is that it’s definitely not up to 10 days chip resistant – more like four (although I am pretty tough on my hands.) I also really appreciate how I don’t need to apply multiple coats to get a solid colour; you get that with the first one. Dying to try out the other shades, 10 of which were created by Kate Moss.

Keen to give this new range from Rimmel a go, I tried shade “Britpop,” a bright blue colour reminiscent of 1960s pop art. I absolutely love the colour – it’s bright and bold and as the bottle promises, there is a definite gel-like look and texture to the polish.

At first I struggled to get used to the brush as it is completely flat and quite wide, and most of the brushes I am used to are thinner in width. However, despite this I found that I actually messed a lot less than usual, and the polish went on my nails rather than my cuticles. It didn’t take too long to dry and with my top coat left a gorgeous shiny finish.

The only thing that disappointed me about this product is the wear, as I had my first chips appear on Day 3. Great colour and great finish, but I missed the usual 5 – 6 day wear I am used to getting out of my nail varnishes.

  1. Well I love this product for two reasons: 1. It is quick drying which is what I look for in a nail polish, 2. It lasts long without chipping. This I think depends on the type of nails a person has and also how many coats a person applies. It will last long if a person applies 2-3 coats. Mine always seems to chip off only at the edges and this happens with most nail polishes I use. The colour is fantastic too!

  2. I painted my nails last sunday and today will be the 8th day I have this nail polish on my nails. It’s only starting to chip now
    The colour is amazing, it’s very pigmented and quick to dry. I use it with the Nail Nurse base coat and the Finishing Touch top coat. You won’t go wrong with this nail polish.

  3. I bought this range of nail polish at Foschini for R69,95 each. I applied two coats of the nail polish. It has a gel-like finish. While I had it on my nails, I did a lot of house work and worked in water (to wash dishes). It lasted a 4days without chipping and for me that is very impressive, considering the work I was doing. I bought the hip-hop shade. You can also buy it at Edgars and Clicks.

  4. I like Rimmel nail polish as it doesn’t chip quickly, I will try the new range.

  5. I love this new range. It is easy to apply and fast drying. It does however chip within the first week but has stayed together longer than other polishes I have tried.
