I can’t remember the last time I gave a nail polish the chance to dry naturally because I always use a quick dry top coat (currently the Mavala Top Coat Gel Finish). Top coats also add a good level of shine, and if it’s a decent one, can give protection from chipping (I get longer wear, I’ve found, using the above Mavala). However, the Rimmel London 60 Seconds Super Shine is a bit of a habit breaker because you really don’t need a top coat at all. This new range is all about the shine with quick dry thrown in for good measure.
Personally, I like a fat nail brush, and as you can see, the Rimmel London 60 Seconds Super Shine has that for one easy stroke of colour. However, although they suggest one coat only, that’s a habit I really can’t break – I’ve applied two because although the shades are very saturated with pigment, it just looks that little bit more polished with two. Two coats does slightly slow down the quick dry process so make sure your nails are truly rock hard dry between coats.
Best of all, these little beauties are £2.99 a piece, and yet they don’t behave like budget polishes. I love to find good polish – painting your nails a rainbow of different colours is such a pleasure, but not at £20+ a pot! Budget nail polishes are light years away from what they used to be and although I’m regularly reeled in by the glamour of Chanel, there’s absolutely no actual need. The Rimmel London 60 Seconds Super Shine polishes are great value.
The shades above are Instyle Coral, Oragasm (ahem), Pillow Talk, Breakfast In Bed and Ring A Ring O Roses but there are 60 shades to choose from.
