NEW! RIMMEL VELVET MATTE Nail Polish


Shade: 014 Sumptuous Red 


Just when I thought Rimmel won't be releasing anything new for a while...BOOM! New nail polishes and lip products. I decided to go with the nails first but stick around because in the next few days the Apocalips Velvet lips will be up on here too! 

We can definitely say that the autumn vibe is starting to be noticeable everywhere - from clothes shops to even the weather turning windy and cold. I guess I should wave goodbye to summer 2014 while I get super excited to embrace fall with its glorious colours and scents! 

Personally I'm much more of a fan of plum/dark purple/red shades so the colder months are much more right up my street for that reason. I couldn't say "no" when I walked into my local superdrug and saw new matte nail polishes that suited exactly my likes and needs. Yes, "needs" indeed since I have only tried a couple a matte formulas from two other brands so far and I still can't really make up my mind. I need to test more. 
So let's get into this! 

Price : £4.49
Finish : Matte 
Number of Shades: 5 (However I only spotted 2 so far)
Packaging / Applicator : The packaging is basically the one from the Salon Pro range which is one of my favourites! The wand is medium size and covers the whole nail when in action. 
The Product : There is just something about matte nails that makes me go 'wow'. Maybe it's all because of Tumblr. I am however a difficult one to please so I hope you don't mind if I really say what little things bugged me - I can be quite a complainer. I like this product but it's SO-MUCH-WORK. I'm not sure if it's because of the applicator or the actual consistency of the product but damn! I had to coat it at least twice and quite heavily whilst also being very VERY careful so that I could achieve a final result that was somewhat of a pass. The wand makes every little line visible and it's hard to get rid of them/ cover them up. On the plus side it dries really easily and quickly and when you touch your nails they're so smooth and fabulous

Final Thoughts : I will say that even though there is a minor thing that bugs me I still really like this nail polish and I think I will be rocking it this autumn and winter. It probably won't be one I choose on my lazy days but it's still worth having in your collection - especially if you're a nail varnish kinda chick. 


PROS:
- PRICE (quite affordable)
- NICE FINISH RESULT 
- DRIES QUICKLY 

CONS:
- REQUIRES A LOT OF PATIENCE TO
ACHIEVE GOOD RESULTS




What do you think of matte nails?

  4. Ooo, haven't seen these before. I have to admit, I'm not a huge lover of matte nails. I much prefer glossy finishes; however this colour is gorgeous and definitely one for Autumn. xxx
