I think Rimmel just re-released this product with new colours and perhaps a new formulation. The bottles are a bit smaller and the brush is wider. I purchased this in "Blue Eyed Girl", which is a lovely colour and is about $3 from wal-mart. I really liked the new brush, it covers the nails quickly and is not flimsy like the thinner ones, leaving less of a mess. The formula was thick enough that only one coat was needed, and it did dry fast. The only issue I had was that it began to chip very fast. I've had it on for just over a day, and the tips are very chipped. I only wear nail enamel on weekends because my profession does not permit nail polish and therefore I do not bother with a top coat. If you were to purchase this, I would recommend you use a top coat. Other than the chipping, I think this is a great product.
Love love love this nail polish. I have about four so far and they have the only nude colour I've ever had success with (caramel cupcake). They're all a maximum of two costs and they dry super fast - great for people like me who can seem to sit still! Definitely recommend this product to anyone and will be buying more colours soon.
Love the Clear #740. Used to get it @ Walmart for under $4 but its no longer there. This is a great , long-lasting clear polish to use when I'm between manicures. Does not chip. Two coats dry very quickly (about 60 seconds). Nice shine too.
Edit: January 2013:
MY HG clear nail polish. No longer sold in the US. :(
I really like the 60 Seconds Nail Polish. it is inexpensive and you can invest in a few shades without feeling like you have broke the bank! The brush is designed for quicker and more accurate application and it does what it promises and dries super fast. Must try!
Wow! I am so glad I met with his product again! By that I mean that it was sitting in my stash since a long time ago and I found it back today while trying to find which color I wanted to apply to my nails. I got this in Torrid, which is lovely brownish purple mixed with copper twirls. It really does dry in 60 seconds, as the name claims. I gave it 4 lippies because I think it is a little bit more goopy than my other nail polishes, but it might be because I have been having i for so long. The bottle calims it is a one-coat nail-polish, and it is! This shade is, anyway. It goes on evenly, and the brush is the best I have worked with so far. Can't wait to try other shades.
Colour range is great
Lasts well with and without a top coat
Only needs a few coats to become solid
Does NOT dry in 60 seconds
Can chip quickly
Overall a good product, but drying time takes a lot longer than stated.
Great value. Goes on even, about 3 coats and you have a salon gel-like coverage. I have 6 bottles of this. Good it comes in little sizes as it gives you time to actually use it before it goes tacky. In my opinion, rimmel is the best go to nail polish
the biggest part of my collection has to be Rimmels 60 sec Nail polish.
~Variety is the spice of life~
I have this in the following colours:
Fast and Fuschia, Purple Reign, Coralicious, Rapid Ruby, Black Out and Blue my mind.
I think that this is the best selection of nail varnishes available on the high street at the moment, if you are going out and have new clothes you are sure to find a perfect colour match in this range - there are absolutely loads and the colours are really bright and vibrant.
~Not a lot of bottle~
The bottle holds a little less than the standard 10ml bottles, offering just 8ml but the cost is usually between £3 & £4 depending where you shop so i think this is good value for money. Superdrug tends to have sporadic 3 for 2 offers on so look out for these.
The bottle is round and transparent enabling you to clearly see the actual colour of the vanish and the lid stands tall and black like a Grenadier Guards Hat.
~Whats the product like?~
The polish itself is of a medium consistency (not too runny, not too thick) and so applies easily, without smudging. The brush is quite small but 'fans out' well meaning that you can cover your whole nail in 2 swipes. I find that one coat is enough if wearing for the day or a night out but you may wish to apply a second coat if you are aiming to get a few days out of it.
The polish does dry quickly and obviously it depends on how thick you have applied the polish but I find that you need more than 60 seconds even for just one coat, but not much more..maybe a minute and half?
The finished result looks great. These polishes are beautiful bright colours that seem to reflect the light and so have a lovely shiny finish. I do love these however I find that they do chip quite easy and although I have tried to top up where it has chipped this just makes it look bumpy and cheap so I have to take it all off and either start again or submit to naked nails.
~Having it off~
Comes off easy with (and without :( ) nail polish remover and does not leave any stains on your nails.
I have had to give it 4 stars as I just love the collection as a whole owing to the large range available but wouldnt rate the quality of the product alone.
I had 809 Blue Me Away and it stained my fingers, the formula and colour was absolute crap and looked like a disaster against my asian, yellow toned skin.
Often the most expensive product is not the best one. We've been blessed with Rimmel's nailpolishes. I've tried all the luxury ranges and Rimmel still beats them hands down on quality, look, longevity, range and ease of use. Go Rimmel...
