Today I want to talk make up. I love make up, it makes me happy and when I go to work I feel naked without some foundation and blusher. With that being said I am going to do a little review for you all because looking on Google, there are not that many reviews about the Rimmel Salon Pro Kate Moss nail varnishes. I personally was not a fan of her lipstick range she brought out with Rimmel (I know that is quite shocking to say but I just was not). Plus as well, I kind of found it a bit contradictory that she brought out her own line of lipsticks and she fronted a Dior Addict lipstick campaign around the same time. Both the Dior and Rimmel lipsticks she fronted were completely different – preferring the Dior out of the two!
Anyways, onto the nail varnishes……I originally bought three nail varnishes:
1. Britpop (blue)
2. Punk Rock (light grey with purple tinge)
3. Rock and Roll (tomato red)
Now on the website itself it says “Hot shades fresh from the catwalk. Up to 10 days chip-resistant colour with gel shine finish. Precision maxi brush for salon perfection.”
I bought Britpop because blue is my favourite colour and I can never resist them in nail varnish form! I bought the other two because I like those kinds of music……I am currently wearing Britpop with Rock and Roll and I was so impressed with them. The consistency was not watery or too thick and I did not get any air bubbles with them. The brush is reeeeeeaaaallllyyyy really beautiful!! It made it so easy to apply the varnish and in record time too. Literally, the colour you see in the bottle translates well onto the nail, the pigmentation in other words is a dream come true!
Being so impressed with what I had used so far, the following day I went to Superdrug and bought 4 more colours from the range. I would have bought more but they did not have any others. The other 4 I bought was Hip Hop, Jazz Funk, New Romantic and Reggae Splash. I am really looking forward to trying Reggae Splash, it is an apricot type of colour and it is very unique to my collection.
****Please note: I do not know how long this offer is going to be on for but if you spend over £10 on Rimmel products at Superdrug, you get a free Scandaleyes mascara (the orange tube – original version). A free mascara is a free mascara!***
The advertisements online state that this nail varnish is base coat, colour and top coat all in one and lasts for 10 days without chipping. To be fair, when nail varnish products boasts such claims I am ALWAYS very dubious. Regardless of Rimmel’s claims, I would definately recommend a base coat for the darker colours of the range such as Rock and Roll to stop nail staining. The finish of the varnish itself is very glossy – as if there was a top coat on top. But again, to ensure maximum longevity, I would still recommend a top coat.
[To note I use OPI as a base coat and the famed Seche Vite for the top coat. No matter what I buy as a top coat, I ALWAYS come back to Seche Vite.]
And so in conclusion, with there being in total 10 nail varnish colours in this range, I have 7 of them already and with what I have found with them already I am now on the hunt for the final three!
