I would repurchase if I could find it, but I have a feeling it has been discontinued ;(. Loved the formula and the brush
I found this product at Walgreen's on sale for $2.00 a bottle. They didn't have a wide variety of colors, but they did have a few pretty ones that caught my eye. I bought this nail polish in four different colors. Posh Pink, Wild Orchid, Stiletto Red, and Crystal Clear.
I am very fond of the color nail polishes, they are such gorgeous colors. They have a lot of pigment in them, so they show up very well on your nails. The application is so smooth, the wide brush makes applying this polish a breeze. With NYC In a Minute Top Coat this polish dries in no time.
Now, the reason I gave this product only four lippies. The polish, Crystal Clear, is an okay top coat. I like the wide brush and the nice clean application. However, this polish takes FOREVER to dry. It's probably meant to be used as a base coat and it doesn't specifically state to use it as a top coat, but that's what I use it as. I put it on my nails five minutes after painting them, hours went by and they were still wet. Finally, at night before I was ready to go to bed, they felt as if they were completely dry. Well I was mislead...I woke up the next morning with sheets pressed into my nails. I really wish this wasn't the case with this nail polish, but now I will only be using it as a base coat.
If you are looking for a wonderful top coat that dries in no time, check out NYC In a New York Minute top coat, it is phenomenal. I ran out of that top coat, so that is why I picked the Rimmel one up.
But overall, all of the colored nail polishes work great. Just stay away from Crystal Clear if you are looking for a top coat.
I have this in a deep burgundy colour - perfect for fall. I love the brush on this, it's big enough to basically cover your whole nail in one swipe. I've had mine on for 3 days and it still looks good (minimal chips). I like the formula, it goes on pretty nicely. I'll have to pick up more colours.
Friggin awesome polish. I bought it on sale for $2.50. A color called toasted cocoa or something like that. Seriously, such a beautiful color and goes on so well. No streaking. I put on two coats and then megashine by sally hansen, and my nails look awesome. they look like i got them done in the salon. this polish goes on smooth and colors well. lasts a decent amount of time. highly recommend it.
I love these polishes! Great quality and not very expensive.
I got this in 170 Crystal Clear for 4 dollars. Rimmel, you need to fix this. Even after my polish is COMPLETELY dry (I usually wait more than 12 hours before putting this clear coat on top) it smears everything. I used it once after I slept in my polish and thought that the polish was too new (less than 6 hours of wear) to put a clear coat on, or it wasn't the clear coat, but rather the colour polish; but it wasn't. It smeared even my Sally Hansen Magnetic polish! And it was dry for almost 24 hours! Seriously Rimmel, fix this formula. It smears everything on top unless it's one solid colour.
This would be my favorite nail polish if they had more colors to choose from. The brush, polish, and packaging is such excellent quality, I have a lot of their colors and only wish they had more! My favorites are Sunset Orange, Posh Pink, and Wild Orchid. Don't pass up these polishes, they're better than OPI! And if you like these polishes, check out Wet'n'Wild Megalast for $1.99, they're just as fabulous w/ more color selection.
My favourite polish! Nice quality bottles, wide brush, great quality product. Without a topcoat, I get 4 or so days out of this with very few chips and only a little tip wear. With a base + top coat, I get 6-7 days, which is impressive for a mom of a 2 year old. Nice shine and quick dry time. Frequently goes on sale, usually about $5. Will always buy again.
This nail enamel is my favourite besides OPI! I got four colours because they were on sale for only $5 at a drugstore and I didn't expect the great quality. The colours are very vivid. The packaging feels very sturdy and high in quality, and I like the simplicity and squareness of it. The enamel itself does not chip very fast and it does last to about 10 days, as the label suggests. Drying time is typical, but not too long. I will definitely stock up on a few more colours soon.
This range of nail polish is seriously great. Here are all the things I love about it:
The packaging - the bottle is square, which makes it very easy to stack and store, especially since I keep my nail polish in a shoebox like the hoarder that I am. No random jiggling like all my OPI and China glaze bottles. The little crown on the brush cap is just adorable.
The lasting power - amazing. Just amazing. I do my nails every week, and when I use this line of polish with my usual combo of Essie Feed Me basecoat and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri topcoat, I can get a full 7 days with no chipping, and NO TIP WEAR.
The ease of application - the brush is wide and flat, which I really liked. This may be an issue for those of you who prefer smaller brushes, but I'm one of those people who actually like the OPI pro-wide brushes and this works for me. It's a little stiffer than the OPI pro-wide, which I find actually makes it easier to control. The less strokes I need, the less chance I have to mess up, lol.
The formula - opaque in 1 coat. I apply 2 anyway because I find sometimes with just 1 coat, parts of it will sheer out when it's "dragged off" by the brush from my topcoat application. It dries to a shiny finish, so you don't actually need to bother with topcoat if you don't want to, but I can't comment on the lasting power in that case.
I only wish there were more colours. I have seriously considered buying a colour I didn't even like just because of the great formulation on these. It's THAT fantastic. Sanity prevailed, though.
