And here I am again with some pretty metallic nail polishes! I know it’s not for everyone, but I can’t get enough of it. Rimmel recently release the Kate Moss Velvet lipsticks in the Lasting Finish formula. Along with those, Rimmel also released a little nail polish collection ‘Metal Rush’. It seems we only get two shades, but the UK seems to get two more shades. What I like is the duo chrome effect (anything duo chrome is mine!) and it’s a widely available brand here, so it’s really nice to see a brand like Rimmel come out with these!
The nail polishes come in a bottle that is exactly the same as the Rimmel 60 seconds nail polish bottles. They are round and a bit smaller and contain 8 ml of product. The price of these are 6.99 euro. The brush is wide and flat, but it’s a bit thicker than let’s say the L’oreal Color Riche nail polishes. The Metal Rush polishes are not a part of the permanent collection as far as I can see and they don’t seem to take part of any of the existing lines. Nevertheless, they are a great addition to my collection and maybe yours!
Gold Save The Queen is a bronze with brown tones. It shifts to a gorgeous gold and even a green. The finish is metallic, but it’s not an overly strong metallic finish. The nail polish also has a lot of very fine shimmers in red, yellow, green, silver, gold and orange. The duo chrome aspect is a bit more subtle with this shade but it’s still gorgeous because it looks like a very interesting colour. It’s a great shade for Autumn because it has browns, gold, greens and bronze in it. The formula itself was great, the first layer was a bit sheer, but it’s great in two layers, something I didn’t expect from a lighter shade like this. I also layered it onto a dark colour and it brings out the green. A great shade if you ask me and I’m usually very wary of anything brown.
Royal Blue is a blue turquoise shade with purple. This nail polish has a stronger duo chrome effect. I’m not sure why they called it Royal Blue, because to me it’s not a royal blue at all. It’s a gorgeous shade though, I love the combination of the turquoise and the purple, it goes amazingly well together. The colour shift is beautiful, you see darker blue, paler blue, turquoise, some kind of pale lilac and a gorgeous purple. The formula on this one was sheer though. You relaly do need three layers to make it opaque or use a dark base coat. If you use it on it’s own, you get a softer and a lighter shade and when it’s used over a dark base coat the colour becomes more intense and stronger. I like both, it’s different. The metallic finish is stronger in Royal Blue, you can see a bit of brush strokes. On the pictures it looks stronger but in real life it’s more subtle.
I wasn’t too sure about Gold Save the Queen, but I actually really love it. It’s a very very tricky colour to photograph though, I can’t do it any justice, but it’s a gorgeous warm golden bronze. I expected to love Royal Blue and yes I totally love it, but I do wish that it was more opaque. Both nail polishes seem to be really great in quality (like most Rimmel nail polishes on me) so I’m really going to enjoy these two!
I’m going to take it a bit easier on the nail polish reviews now, because one of my nails broke halfway on the nail. It didn’t broke all the way through but it’s painful and I’m trying to not let it break even more because it means I only have half of my nail, which is a nightmare. So they are having a little holiday right now! I hope they will grow out soon, but in the meantime it means more of the other stuff!
