Got this in #420, sweet lavender for 98 cents at walgreens. it was half off. I love it, it's the most natural lilac color on me. I am medium/tan, olive undertones and it looks so pretty and subtle. totally recommend it, it's normally under $2. It dries fast, but doesn't last very long, had it for two days and already fading at the tips, I wash my hands a lot. But for $1 and how pretty it is, it's totally worth it!

Just brought one of these yesterday from Walgreens after seeing how cheap it was. It was less than $2 & well worth the money. As the bottle claims it does dry within 60 seconds, which really sold me. I'm loving how it applies, the brush is thick & very non-streaky. So the application is very nice & flawless. The only downside is how tiny the bottle is, but then again, I only paid a dollar or so. Will definitely repurchase some more soon! Never knew painting my nails could be this fast & easy!

best formula ever. the brush is amazingly good and doesn't streak. better than essie in my opinion. keeps up to its claims and lasts for a week (with minor touch ups). highly recommend it. plus it's really cheap. only downfall is that it's hard to find (it's made in the UK). try ebay and order a few colors. you won't be disappointed.

What a nail polish!
Usually not a fan of the Rimmel brand but wow this nail polish is incredible.

I paint my nails at night seeings as its the only time I ever get and usually always wake up with sheet marks. Not with this!! It actually does dry in 60 seconds and it comes in a great range of colours.

There is a downside though; you need three coats of most of the lighter colours which can become quite irritating.

This nail polish outlasts more expensive brands and has a great range of colours, great brush tip and easy to apply.

For $1.50 I picked up 3 or 4 of these and love them! What a steal!

I have to say that I'm pretty disappointed by this polish. Usually I don't expect much from drugstore polish, but I was intrigued by the "60 second" drying time and decided to give it a go.
I HATED the brush. I don't know if I just got a crappy one, but the bristles were really uneven. The brush was thick, which usually I like, but there was a clump of bristles in the middle that were longer than all the others, making the application quite messy and frustrating. This polish is supposed to be a one-coat deal, but I found that one coat of Stand To Attention (a deep, shiny red which I actually really liked) was slightly streaky and not flawless by any measure. I didn't want to put on a thicker coat, though, for fear of screwing up with the brush.
It dried in about the same time as after you apply a quick-dry top coat, but when I went to add another coat to even the colour out, that's when everything went wrong. It literally did not dry solid. In the hours that followed they smudged, dented and chipped like crazy. After about five hours, a quarter of it was chipped off completely. 24 hours later, I was still denting it by accident. I wasn't doing anything laborious, but I have never had polish wear so quickly and so terribly.
My guess is that the formula is just not meant to dry properly with more than one coat, so if you can pull off one coat of this polish, it might work much better. I didn't use a top coat, either, so that might help. As for me, though, I don't think this polish is worth it. I'd much rather go for a nice OPI red and load on the fast-dry top coat.

I don't typically buy Rimmel products because my experiences with their mascaras have not been pleasant ones. I bought one of these 60 second nail polishes and I liked it plenty, I got one at walmart for $1.50! :)
I liked these very much, that I've purchased at least 9 different colors! ♥

Love this nail polish! Yes two coats dried in less than 5 mins AND no smudges or ripples later on. I always paint my nails at night (only time I get!) and frequently wake up with "sheet patterns" the next morning. Not this time baby! I used Double Decker Bus red which is (to me) the perfect blue-red, maybe a touch darker than Revlon Red which I like. The brush is perfect - can really paint a whole nail in one swipe. Also no bubbles when it dries either. I usually add a clear hardner topcoat as I'm quite hard on my nails so cannot really vouch for durability. Mine usually last a week with no chips. Would definitely recommend it to impatient people like me! LOL

Although the price is fantastic - Nail polish is really a great example of the cost of a cosmetic item really reflecting the quality of the product. The cheaper it is, usually the longer it takes to dry, the more it chips and the thinner it looks.

Nothing beats a nail polish that has a perfect finish after only one layer and with this product, it would have been...decent...with only one layer, but it really didn't have that salon-quality finish that i enjoy. So, being the perfectionist that I am - I waited during the "60 second" drying time to apply another layer. 60 hand-flapping and blow drying seconds later, i applied another layer (I wasn't taking the 60 seconds too literally - the product did ACTUALLY appear reasonably dry). The second layer definitely gave it the extra salon quality thickness i initially desired after the first layer. Unfortunately, "60 seconds" later and the product is not dry. I'd say the actual drying time after two layers was closer to 15-20 minutes for complete dig-your-nail-in-and-there-isn't-a-dent dryness. And although as previously mentioned - I'm a perfectionist...It looks perfect...I just wish I had the patience to enjoy the wait. Afterall, 60 seconds was the promise. But was it a guarantee? Apparently not.

Anyway - a work day down, a full nights sleep, 2 showers and makeup and hair styling etc complete...My nails are oookkkayish - If i hold my hands far away from my face and i maybe squint a little. Slightly chipped and uneven from the awkward length of drying time. Apparently a product that can't handle an additional layer.. weak.

The colour i chose was "caramel cupcake" which is actually a really nice colour (in the bottle). So kudos for that...i think?

On the back of the bottle, it does say it is a "one coat" nail polish. But i'm sorry Rimmel, one coat was just too transparent.

But all in all - 60 seconds - One coat ... It does just that. Dries in 60 seconds.

BUT HEAR MY WARNING MY FELLOW MAKEUPALLYERS apply another coat and don't say i didn't tell you so.

But, hey. if you're into the whole transparent color on nail game, be my guest. Not for me.
