Hello everybody! This is the second post in my Rimmel 60 Seconds series. To read the review of the polishes and see the first 4 swatches click here for part 1.
I still have 5 more swatches for you after the jump.
|Rimmel 825 Sky High (no top coat)|
Sky High was the first shade I tried from this collection. It's a beautiful turquoise creme, opaque in 2 coats. It's a little more green in reality than it comes out in pictures. This one stains and I was lucky enough to be warned by someone before I put it on, so I doubled the base coat. You can check out the whole post about it here.
|Rimmel 805 Grey Matter (no top coat)|
Grey Matter was a big disappointment for me. It was one of the colors I knew I wanted from the collection. I love grey polish and this is a cement grey creme. I find this color elegant and classy. But unfortunately, the formula is terrible. It was thick and impossible to work with. This is 2 coats. It was very very streaky and it didn't level out at all. You can see the streaks in the photo. Maybe top coat could partially fix this and I sure hope it will. This also had the worst brush from the bunch.
|Rimmel 318 Stand To Attention (no top coat)|
Stand To Attention is the other true one coater of the ones I have. It's a cool toned red that looks absolutely great with my skin tone. It dries to a shiny finish and it's just amazing. The only problem is the thicker formula, but a few drops of thinner can fix that. You can see the nail art I did using it as a base here.
|Rimmel 850 Aye, Aye, Sailor (no top coat)|
Aye, Aye, Sailor is a delicious and vampy dark navy. It almost looks black depending on the light. I just love this type of colors, mainly because they are the complete opposite of my pale skin. This is opaque in 2 coats. Again, a thicker formula that can lead to some bubbling if you aren't very careful. It dries to an amazing shine. I can't wait to wear this in the fall and especially in the winter!
|Rimmel 450 Sunny Days (with top coat)|
I'm trying to close on a more summery note so here's a yellow for you. Sunny Days is a vibrant yellow with a golden iridescent shimmer that is very evident on the nail. The name is totally appropriate. The formula is surprisingly creamy for a yellow and 3 coats are needed to achieve full opacity. There were still some streaks visible but top coat took care of those. I would say that this one impressed me in a good way.
All in all, I'm happy to have purchased most of these polishes. I would sure like it if the company wouldn't put false claims on the packaging (like one coat or 1 second application) and would just stick to something plausible. They are certainly not worth the 7 euros they cost in some European countries, but I got them on sale for around 1.3 euros (the full price is a little over 2 euros here). They are good for building a collection with a lot of fun shades and they are also great for nail art. I did a manicure using most of them, which I will show you soon. My favorites are Limealicious and Sunny Days, with Stand To Attention and Aye, Aye, Sailor following closely. My only disappointment was Grey Matter and I sure hope it's because I got a bad batch.
I hope you enjoyed these posts and if you have any questions please post them in the comments section!
