Rimmel London - Rapid Ruby

 

 
 
When the colder season's come in I like to wear a lot of darker shades on my nails such as deep reds, purples, browns, greens, midnight blues and black. It's just nice to tone it down after the Summer too.
The nail polish is by Rimmel and is one of their 60seconds polishes in the colour 320 'Rapid Red'. Personally I think they could of given it a better name, but hey ho! It's a deep shade of red kind of like a true blood red if you know what I mean? 
Quite lot of people say that it's an exact dupe of the colour by Chanel - 'Rouge Fatal', but I don't own this shade to give you my own opinion I'm afraid. If that's the case though it's a hell of a lot cheaper at just £3.69 a bottle for 8ml. Usually on 2 for £5.00 in Boots as well.
With an easy and quick application, how can you fault it?
 
Pro's
  • Gorgeous shade
  • Easy application
  • Dries really quick
  • Cheap as chips to buy
Con's
  • I hadn't had this bottle that many months and it decided to go gloopy. I've never experienced this before with any of my Rimmel nail polishes. So I'm going to put it down to a dud bottle and see how I get on with my next one.
  • It's not that long lasting, especially without base & top coat. (This could be due to me chipping them typing on the keyboard though).
 
But it's so cheap and such a gorgeous shade that I don't mind a tiny bit of disappointment.
There's some gorgeous Revlon and Essie colours in at the moment too. I think that's what I need to have a splurge on next time.
 
What's your favourite A/W nail polish?
What nail polish brand is your favourite?
If I were to answer that one it would have to be a toss up between China Glaze, Nails Inc. & Essie.
 Oh & I apologise for the fuzzy phone picture too.

    1. ooo I've never heard of ORLY before, i'll have to have a look at that one. it seems to be a nightmare for you to get hold of a lot of beauty bits, bless you :( how pretty are the china glaze colour selections though? I could buy them all (if I were a rich girl... na, na, na, na, naaaa) xx

  9. It's so annoying when nail varnishes go all goopy! But i'd have to say that Misa nail polish is really good, i got introduced to it when i started a nail course, you can buy it off eBay for round about £8 it's totally worth it because whenever i ware it the polish last me for about 2 weeks with rarely any chips!xxx

    By the way hun, i've tagged you my recent post, the Travel Tag!x

    1. I know I've tried all sorts from sprays to oils etc. to try speed up the drying process, never works! I think the key is to apply thin layers :) xx
