When it comes to nail polish Rimmel is always a brand that I’d overlooked and I’m not quite sure why. At one point I tried the Lasting Finish polish range and wasn’t a fan of the formula. I think it’s also because I tried a couple of lower end nail polishes and didn’t have fantastic results so I assumed that nail polish was one of those things where a higher price tag equated to high quality. This week I’ve been testing the Rimmel London 60 Seconds Super Shine Polish by Rita Ora in Portaloo Blue, here’s my thoughts.
I think the packaging on this is really cute, I’m not enamoured with the simple clear glass bottle and plastic black lid however, the floral print and Rita Ora’s signature is just too cute. Packaging aside, the price is very affordable at only £2.99 per polish.
The colour isn’t very autumn friendly but it’s a beautiful shade nonetheless. It’s a bright sky blue that reminds me of Sally Hansen’s Blinding Blue which I wore for absolutely ages. The brush is a flatter brush that makes it very easy to paint the entire nail with.
In terms of formula this is very easy to work with, two coats maximum are needed for full opacity and it dries down to a very glossy finish! This seemed to dry quickly although I’m not sure if it was exactly in sixty seconds!
The only downside is the longevity, I rarely wear a topcoat especially when I’m testing polishes as I like to see how they perform on their own. This one lasted me one day before one nail peeled off entirely and needed redoing. After that I got around three days of wear before this started to chip so not amazing but not the worse either.
Aside from the longevity, this is pretty darn good especially for the price. The colour and formula is nice, the finish is lovely and it’s budget friendly to boot, if only it lasted longer it would probably be one of the best polishes I’ve tried from the high street.
So there we have it, the hype is real my friends I can see why people love these polishes so much, thankfully I have a few more shades tucked away in my collection to be tried so I’m sure I’ll be doing some more Rimmel polish reviews soon, in the meantime, why not try one for yourself?
The Rimmel London 60 Seconds Supershine Polish by Rita Ora in Portaloo Blue (what a mouthful) is available from Superdrug for £2.99.
