Rimmel London by Rita Ora - Hot Bright colours

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.

The Rimmel London Colour Rush 60 Seconds Nail Polish has a RRP of $7.95 and are available from this month from Priceline, Priceline Pharmacy, Target, Kmart, BigW, selected pharmacies and selected Coles and Woolworths.  For stockists call 1800 812 663.
