The first brand I'm clearing out is Rimmel London. I have their nail lacquers in two ranges: Lasting Finish and 60 Seconds.. The Lasting Finish range separates into 2 smaller ranges with some being regular lacquers and some are fruit-scented (eh, does that make sense?).
If you're a picky one when it comes to brushes then it's good to note that these nail polishes are available in 3 different types of brushes! Yes!! THREE!
From left to right: Xpress 1 SEC Brush (60 Seconds), Pro-cision Brush (Lasting Finish) and a regular brush (Lasting Finish). I don't get why there's so many different types of brushes, but to be honest.. I can use whatever! Doesn't bother me at all, but I thought I'd put that out there for all those who are picky with brushes! :P
Lasting Finish Range
Lively Lilac -- Not very lively at all. It looks quite dull on the nails actually and is prone to streaking with a sheerer formula! I honestly thought I would've loved this nail colour better.
Lemon Drop -- Cute pastel yellow! I really like this colour, but it's quite streaky so I had to layer thicker coats for a quick 'evening' job. Despite the thicker coats, it's still quite quick-drying!
Strawberry Fizz -- Such a pretty cool-toned pink colour! Two coats of this is enough for full opacity, but I prefer three coats! This one had perfect application, is non-streaky and is just as quick-drying as other shades. I'm really considering to keep this one, but do I really need another pink? Nop.
Wine Not -- A darker red wine colour. This one's also perfect in terms of application and drying time. This colour seems pretty good for the upcoming Autumn, yes?!
60 Seconds RangeGrey Matter -- is a blue toned/slate grey colour. Looks like the 'perfect' grey, yes? I really thought so too, but it actually applied to be much darker than what it looks like in the bottle. Nevertheless, it's lovely in terms of pigmentation and its "express 1 second brush" fits my nail shape really well! Only wished it wasn't so dark!
Portobello Pink -- another pink, but with shimmers and warmer tones than Strawberry Fizz. Also darker than Strawberry Fizz, may I add!
Deliciously Dark -- is a very dark, dark, dark purple. This one was also perfect (as with most other dark colours anyways) in terms of consistency, pigmentation and application. Two easy coats for full opacity.
I've also posted about other Rimmel Nail Polishes in:
There's really no vast differences between the two ranges. I don't feel so, at least! Oh, and if you're wondering on the dry time of the '60 Seconds' range, I can tell ya that they sure do dry in 60 seconds, but are still prone to budging so make sure to be careful with them until they're complete dry!
All in all, ticks on my list!
