Rimmel London has a collection of six new polishes by British singer, songwriter and actress Rita Ora. The new polishes hit Australian stores this month and I have swatches of the three bright colours to show you tonight, together with a nail art look I created using the polishes. I will have the three pastel shades tomorrow.
I actually only own one or two Rimmel London polishes, and they are ones that I purchased many, many years ago, so I was pretty keen to try these out.
First up, I want to share my nail art, cause I think it looks pretty fun! I was inspired by an Instagram tutorial by @yagala to create this look, and I have to say it is so easy that anyone can do it. I started with a white base. Then for the rectangle shapes I just painted a small square about 2cm x 2cm of each feature colour onto a piece of plastic (I used a zip lock bag). I also top coated them with some Seche Vite to speed up the drying time on the plastic. When they were dry, I peeled them up and simply cut them up with a pair of scissors. I then placed random rectangle shapes onto each nail into a layer of fresh top coat.
Now lets look at each of these shades on their own.
Do Not Disturb - a smooth, well pigmented teal creme. The formula was great and full glossy coverage was achieved at two thin coats. These polishes all have those really wide brushes that have a curved tips to help make the edge near the cuticle as neat as possible. I'm not used to using such a wide brush, but I didn't find it too hard to adapt.
Don't Be Shy - Bright, richly pigmented pink creme. Again the formula was good. This is two coats with Seche Vite top coat.
Midnight Rendezvous - a dark and rich purple creme. Nice formula and coverage. Such a beautiful shade of purple. This is two coats with Seche Vite top coat.
These polishes were a delight to swatch. They dried quickly and were richly pigmented and opaque at two coats. The colors are also gorgeous, so they get a thumbs up from me.
