A whole bunch of Rimmels

I'm really happy with today's manicure, save from the fact that my Seche Vite made a meal of it. All I know is that before I went to bed, all the cuticles were tidy and there was no shrinkage. This morning, the Seche shrank my polish away from my cuticles and my tips look they are carrying four days wear! What can I say? That'll teach me to be so heavy handed!

This is Rimmel's Grey Matter. I have no ill to speak of Rimmel polishes - they do what they do and they do it well, in my opinion.

Here's the rest of the crew...the only thing missing is the black acrylic paint used to outline the design.
Blue-eyed Girl, Man Overboard, Grey Matter, Caramel Cupcake and Pop Your Pink (my favourite ever pink!)

 I'm afraid my point and shoot camera is really temperamental at the moment, so I've taken these pictures with my phone. The picture quality has deteriorated badly because I emailed the pictures to myself rather than downloading them directly from my phone.

 I should really try using my husband's Nikon, but it's too heavy for me to hold in one hand. Yes, that's my excuse. We have a tripod too...tsk, tsk.

You can see the evil shrinkage around the cuticles there. Boo!

I had intended to put patterns on all of the nails, but I wasn't using my striping brush and the lines weren't coming out how I wanted them to, it was dark and it was after 1am on a school night. So, you only got two nails!



  1. I love rimmels I have a nice collection of them but I don't own any of these. I love your nail design :)

    1. Thanks Rhonda. Admittedly, I have a lot of Rimmels because they are good value and I love the formula.

  2. So pretty I love these rimmel polishes they always catch my eye but i never get round to picking them up! I might do now though :)

    1. Yeah, It's good to have a rummage in the Rimmel section once in a while, lol!

  3. I actually really like the fact that there is only 2 accent nails. They look fab!

    1. Thanks Katie...I was so tired, I couldn't bare to do anymore!
