Everywhere I look, people are blogging about their nail polishes and I have caught onto the nail polish bandwagon! I'm also having a lot of fun w/ it!
When I was younger, I didn't like to do my nails much - a lot of hassle plus I didn't really know how to apply it. I still struggle w/ application but I'm getting much better! I have about 6 nail polishes right now and 4 different brands so I decided just to get a color from each brand and review the nail polishes for the brush, the consistency, color pay off, and so forth of those brands.
Today I will talk about Rimmel's Lycra Wear 10 - Mineral Nail Polish in Posh Trash
** I have short nails b/c I play the piano
Brush: 5/5 - Love the brush! Truly helps w/ application and even makes things go faster :D Great for beginner to use!
Polish Consistency: 3.5/5 - A little bit thicker than I would like but nothing too annoying. If you don't have enough on the brush, it'll get really dry at the top but if you have too much it'll create a thick coat. Just have to work w/ it. For this color, I only need one coat for a great opacity!
Drying Time: 5/5 - This thing dries fast! But again, I would wait 5-10 minutes before washing hands or anything.
Color: 5/5 - The picture shows it a bit lighter but it is a really beautiful pearly grayish, purplish, and champagne-ish color... it is really unique I would say. I LOVE THIS ON MY TOES! I have it on my finger nails right now but it looks gorgeous on my toes too! This color can be build up to be really dark!
Color selection: 3/5 - The website shows 21 colors but usually at the store, I see about 10 shades available. The big thing is they only make pinks and purples... I don't see any blues or greens or any vibrant (stand out) colors.
Overall: 3.5/5 - Yeah, I would definitely buy another color in this brand but the color selection makes it hard for me to choose. I always walk by the collection and never thought much about it because the colors don't reach out to me! Although I've seen a youtube GURU talks about the color Milk Chocolate so that might be my next color. Again, one of those products that doesn't hurt to try... :)
Have a good day~
