It finally feels like spring in Sydney! Here’s one perfect combination for this season you can achieve instantly with Rimmel London Colour Rush 60 Seconds Nail Polish in Breakfast in Bed and Do Not Disturb.
This is part of the Color Rush Lip & Nail Collection by Rita Ora. There are 6 bold shades in the nail polish range – White Hot Love (white), Lose Your Lingery (ice pink), Breakfast in Bed (ice green), Don’t Be Shy (fuchsia), Do Not Disturb (teal) and Midnight Rendezvous (purple). RRP A$7.95.
This is what Rimmel London says about these nail polishes:
- Rimmel’s iconic one-coat, quick-dry nail polish in bold new shades
- Innovative anti-streak brush for perfect coverage in just one coat
It’s quick drying, although I didn’t time if it dries in exactly 60 seconds. I like the wide brush with makes application easier. However I can’t get perfect coverage with just one coat with these 2 colors. They require at least 2 coats to look even. Without top coat the sheen is lost in just a day.
I’m quite impressed with minimal housework done, the colors still look like new after 2 days. There was also minimal chipping too!
Breakfast in Bed
While the color is officially described as ice green, it looks more of ice blue.
This is my favorite color in the range.
However this is the most difficult color to work with. I don’t know if it’s this particular color or I got a bad bottle. The color is streaky and uneven with just a single coat. It requires 3 coats to look its best. This is in general unacceptable in my standard because I’m lazy and hate the waiting time in-between coats. And in general, I always ended up with bubbles with more than 2 coats because I’m impatient to wait. However because this is quick drying it cuts down the waiting time.
It’s a love-hate relationship with this color!
Do Not Disturb
While I wouldn’t classify teal as a color for spring, it looks pretty when teamed up with Breakfast in Bed.
Do Not Disturb is easier to work with than Breakfast in Bed. I can live with the result with just 1 coat, but it looks more even with a second coat.
The only problem I have with this color is that, it stains my nails when the color is removed. This is a common problem I have in general with teal colored nail polishes (even teal colored eyeliner!) Is it the pigment? Anyone else have the same problem?
What do you think of this color combination?
Like: Cheap. Quick dry. Wide brush. Bold colors.
Dislike: Breakfast in Bed is difficult to work with.
