From Rags to Riches
As many of you know I am fairly new to the whole swatching thing. By no means do I consider myself capable of "professionally analyzing" nail polish brands. However, I have developed a new-found passion in seeking out polish shades that I find particularly attractive. Some are very current, while others may be from last year's collection. Through all my "investigation" I am discovering amazing attributes in some polishes/brands. I feel that I am truly broadening my horizon when it comes to lacquers, and (I hope you will agree with me on this) my nail polish application skills as well as photography skills are improving bit by bit.
Today I would like to share one of my absolute favourites thusfar.
Introducing - Rimmel London Lasting Finish Pro "Rags to Riches" #286
In my humble opinion it applies like a dream, has a wider-than-usual brush and this formulation is one of the best I have ever worked with. I was so pleased that I went out and bought two more, different shades, of course, that I will show at a later date.
It certainly looked darker in the bottle, but once applied (2 coats here) it was a fresh green with a hint of shimmer to it.
It claims to last up to 10 days, but I never have a shade on for that amount of time. It was definitely fast-drying, which is always a nice feature.
Almost the same shot as above. So, what do you think of the Rimmel London shades? If you own any of them, which ones?
