Now, onto serious matters. You know when you get a hankering for a colour product in a vey particular shade, not necessarily one you've actually even seen in real life before? Well, I have been after the perfect tea rose shade of nail polish for a while. Possibly a sheer tea rose, a jelly formula at the very least. I hadn't come close to anything like it for a while, and then one day, my peepers fell upon the rows of Rimmel polishes in my local drugstore, and I thought I had it. This is the 60 Second polish in Rose Libertine.
In the bottle, it looked like that soft rose pink I was after - almost the colour of a pale rose turkish delight. Alas, I have been disappointed.
On application, it's a very bright, Barbie pink, which is not to my liking at all. If this was a lipstick, it would be Pink Friday. Pepto Bismol. Not the tea rose I wanted. I think even in the pictures it looks different in the bottle to how it does on the nails.
I can't fault the application - Rimmel polishes apply really well - and this was only one coat, but it doesn't dry in 60 seconds, for a start, and it also starting chipping within 12 hours. Although all polishes do that to me.
Frankly, I am disappointed. And still hunting.
Any polishes you can recommend that you think might be what I'm after?
