Since my ‘Accidental Haul‘ earlier this week, I have been desperate to try out the new Rimmel Metal Rush Polish I came home with.
I picked up a bottle of “Pearly Queen”, and at only £3.99 a bottle, had to restrain myself from buying all four of the set.
Pearly Queen is the least understated of the four shades, however I love the subtlety of the colour combinations. True to the “Flip Your Colour” statement on the bottle, the pearlescent nature of the varnish makes your nails shimmer a purpley pink, then green, then lilac, all with a silvery undertone.
So, ready for this evening, I popped on a slick of “Collection 2000, 2-in-1 base coat” and then applied two coats of Pearly Queen. I finished off with a coat of the ‘Collection 2000, 2-in-1 topcoat” for some extra shine (and hopefully less chipping!).
Yet again, Rimmel have produced an excellent quality product – The brush is a generous size (I painted my entire pinky finger nail with one stroke) and combined with a decent thickness of varnish leaves a gorgeous no-streak finish. Whilst the polish is shimmery, I wanted a glossier finish, which was easily obtained with a quick slick of clear topcoat – perfect!
My, oh my! How I LOVE this polish!! I think it’s the perfect touch for a classy New Years Eve look (and if you’re speedy, there is still time to whizz out and grab a bottle before you start getting ready to put on your gladrags for tonight!)
So, have any of the Metal Rush polishes have caught your eye?
Ciao for now!
