Autumn is slowly approaching, but I'm not ready yet. I say slowly because in Barcelona it is still warm and sunny and I can indulge a little more in beach time before it becomes cold. But before all that happens and because it's always Summer somewhere in the world, I wanted to share my thoughts on the Rimmel 60 Seconds Super Shine by Rita Ora in 'Roll in the Grass'.
I love pastel colours and mint has been one of my favourites for a few years now. You could probably tell from my blog design. Anyway, earlier this summer I stopped by the drugstore in search of a Gel Polish which doesn't require a UV lamp. I had previously tried the Catrice Ultra Stay and Gel System and that didn't work out very well so I thought I'd pick up the Rimmel Super Gel since I'd heard quite a few good words about it. Well, since I was in the drugstore already, I ended up picking a few extra things, including this gorgeous nail polish. Because who goes to the drugstore to just get one lipstick and comes out with just that, right?
The shade 'Roll in the Grass' is part of the Rimmel 60 Second collection of nail polishes which includes quite a few shades in collaboration with Rita Ora. As soon as I saw how pretty this mint shade was, I knew it had to be mine. The nail brush is large making the application extremely easy. The colour is quite opaque, but I still tend to go for 2 coats of the polish. It dries quickly but I've noticed that I need to give the second coat a good amount of time to dry properly if I do not want to have hair streaks on my nails the next morning. Nothing ruins a perfect manicure like going to sleep before it is completely dry. I've worn it quite a bit over the summer and my mani usually lasts about 3 days before it begins to chip. Which is not the 10 days as promised, but I'm yet to find a polish that lasts that long. The quality is really good and the range of colours is amazing, plus at €2 a bottle, you can pretty much get all the colours you want.
