NOTD: Rimmel London 60 Seconds – Blue Me Away

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 15 - 2011

I was sticky beaking along the bargain shelves in Boots (as you do… frequently) and spotted this rather pretty nail polish that had been reduced down to something ridiculous like 75p.  This probably means it’s discontinued and you won’t be able to find it but humour me anway.

Rimmel London 60 Seconds isn’t a formula I’ve played with before.  I’ve previously tried and disliked the Lycra Pro range so have gently steered myself away from Rimmel polishes on that basis which makes me very glad that this bargain price sticker turned my head.

The polish is packed full of fine red sparkle, turning what was essentially a blue base into purple once worn on the nails. This makes the name Blue Me Away rather redundant when looking down at what is clearly a warm-toned purple polish.

Application wasn’t too shady, fairly smooth but I did get a bit of drag around the edges of the nail bed and the polish doesn’t apply kindly unless the brush is well loaded.  Other than that, I was done in two (fairly easy) coats.

I have to take issue with the whole “60 seconds” thing too, seeing as this was one of the slowest-drying polishes I’ve worn in months.  You’re definitely going to need a quick dry top coat with this one.

Other than those niggles, for £3.469 (or less if you can find them on offer), I’m pleased to be reintroduced to a brand I’d avoided when it came to nails.

Rimmel London 60 Seconds polishes can be found instore and online at Boots et al.

    This shade has to be one of my number one favourite shades that I currently have in my collection. Such a beautiful colour that can’t decide if it’s purple or blue 🙂

    I have to confess that I’ve always been a bit of a Rimmel nail polish fangirl, but since I started blogging, I’ve been leaning towards a broader array of brands. I love their colours, but agree that they don’t dry as quickly as they claim to!

    I loveee Rimmel’s 60 seconds collection! Though they can be a bit hit & miss; some of them dry as quick as they claim to but others seem to take forever -.-

    aslkdjgh this is ridiculously pretty! D: I have a bit of a soft spot for Rimmel polishes – the formulas aren’t anything spectacular, but they definitely have some great shades (and at awesome prices, when they go on sale!)

    Oh wow that is a fantastically pretty colour!

    This is gorgeous! I’m tempted to try to get over my issues with Rimmel (my make-up brand of choice as a teenager…shudder) for it!
