As you may have seen, I have had a small haul from ASOS of some Rimmel goods. So I am excited to try out one of the polishes I received!
Since the world rejoiced the news of the Royal Prince of Cambridge being born yesterday, in his honour I thought I would wear one of these 'royal' colours. Since it was a little boy that was born, I chose to wear first 'Royal Blue'.
As with all the Rimmel 'Metal Rush' polishes, this is a duo-chrome. This has a base colour of blue which flips to look purple. There are also hints of green to this polish but only in certain angles. This polish in particular reminds me of peacocks and petroleum.
The biggest plus of this polish is the colour. That sounds silly, I know but the colour is absolutely fascinating. Each angle gives a different shade and each colour is equally as gorgeous. I can understand why these polishes have not been discontinued yet and I've not owned duo-chromes like it.
This has a couple of downsides. One of which is because it is very sheer. These pictures took three coats and there is still a bit of visible nail line. However, that is if you look as closely as I do. You could turn this negative into a positive though as you can layer this on top of other polishes to create entirely different looks.
This polish also takes a long time to dry. As you can see from the photos, I knicked my middle fingernail which was a bit annoying. I do prefer a polish that dries quickly but I now know that I will need spare time if I want this finish to be perfect.
Overall, I would recommend these polishes to anyone as the colours are so lovely. This is the perfect peacock blue and ideal for Autumn/Winter.
Do you like these polishes? Would you purchase this?
