Rimmel's Rose Libertine

I know it was only a few days ago that I did this week's Manic.Monday, but I was so disappointed in the results of the Barry M Christmas Edition in Tinseltown that I quickly needed another one to cheer me up and I turned to a polish that I knew would do just that - it's the Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish, which is another amazing formula on the high street that costs next to nothing (£3.69).

This polish is all about getting ready quickly so all you need is one stroke, one coat and one minute for it to dry and you're all done. There are quite a lot of polishes that promise that at the moment, so does it really work? Well, first of all the 60 Seconds polishes come in a slightly smaller bottle than many others (8ml instead of the usual 10 ml) which makes it niftier to carry with you in your makeup bag for on the go application. I really like that that it's smaller because if like me you're a polishaholic and have never in your life actually finished a nail polish before it turns gloopy and impossible to work with, the smaller volume means that I might actually have a reasonable shot at finishing one. 
Secondly it comes with a wonderful wide brush that covers most of your nail and you get just enough polish for great coverage in just one stroke. Thirdly, the consistency is just right - not too thick so that the brush leaves any streaks and not too thin, so that the shade is impacted which means that in one coat you do get a lovely opaque high gloss finish. Another time saver of course it that with the lovely finish you don't need to use a top coat, unless of course you want to. In the photo I'm only wearing one coat and no top coat, but if you decide to apply two coats you'll find that the color deepens slightly and you get even more of a wonderful glossy look. Last but not least, the polish does indeed dry very quickly without any bubbles or defects, so for me the 60 Seconds approach definitely works and it'll last for about 4 days. If you haven't already tried this little beauty from Rimmel, I would highly recommend it and especially this gorgeous shade.

Since I've been testing some makeup in pink, mauve and berry shades I thought that instead of going vampy with the nails I would keep the look softly feminine and instead wear one of my most loved pink shades - Rose Libertine. It's an absolutely stunning warm slightly coral pink that is so dainty and pretty on the nails.
It might not be the obvious choice for this season filled with darker, heavier shades but I love the tenderness and softness of it. If you want something a little more daring, then Rimmel offers more than 50 different shades in this excellent formula - how on earth is a girl to choose just one? Just as well that both Boots and Superdrug have a 3 for 2 offer on at the moment, so go on and treat yourself to some new exciting shades.

    1. It's excellent and in my opinion it's a bit better than the Bourjois 60 secs formula because it's more long lasting :o). Xx

  4. Ooh love this colour; super feminine :-) We tend to wear darker shades this seasons but it's always nice to mix up things! Completely agree, this polish is perfect for people on the go. Amazed how you're only wearing one coat and no top coat in your photo; results are great, still quite a deep colour and glossy. Must buy :-)

    Great that Boot's are doing a 3 for 2 as I am off there on Monday :)
