Enjoy an Orange Sunset With Rimmel

I apologize for the last of posts from the end of last week and over the weekend. Don't get me wrong, I've had plenty to write about but my boy and I went to Toronto on the weekend so I was uber busy planning for that. But I'm back and ready to tell you about some juicy nail colour!

It's Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro Polish in Orange Sunse! I picked up this polish for about $4 at my local drugstore because I was looking for a formula that was quick-drying, had smooth application and an awesome pop of colour. This polish dries quicker than some others I've used (I'm impatient) and I can't tell you how much I appreciate that! So many times I've waited hours for my polish to dry only to ruin my whole manicure when I reach for the remote! So frustrating! Rimmel's brush is also a little wider for smooth application of the relatively thin polish. I especially like that this colour appears different depending on the lighting; in bright sunlight it's orange but under the lights at my lab it's more of a bright pink. Not sure if Rimmel intended this to happen but I think it's a pretty groovy feature!

The above pic is how the colour looks on my nails. I applied a base coat, two coats of colour and a top coat. What do you think?

For the cost of the polish I'd say it's a pretty awesome deal and a great way to try an outrageous colour. I do find it chips in a few days (definitely less than 10) but that doesn't make this a loser. What are you wearing on your nails lately? I've heard chocolate brown polishes are going to be big for fall so I'm thinking I'll need to pick one up soon.

  1. I have a dark brown polish that I love for fall! I also really like dark purple! I wore it on my first date with Paul! It's my lucky charm!!

    I'm also a fan of really bright colours for toes at all seasons! Nothing cheers me up more then looking down at bright pink toes in the middle of December!!

    Loving the orange on you! xox
