Hello lovelies,

You might have noticed over the years that I LOVE RED! Not just on my nails but on clothes as well...well, in today's post I matched my nails and a cute red dress.

I have chosen a beautiful red nail polish for my nails - Rimmel London Salon PRO in Mars from the Kate Moss collection.

Rimmel Mars was a lovely polish to work with - fully opaque in two coats and easy to apply. It dried fast and glossy so for the price around £4.50 you get a great polish. I like the classic red shade and I just felt so comfortable in it, I could wear it all the time!

 

Rimmel polishes are generally available in drugstores and drugstore websites in many countries. In the UK you can buy them at Superdrug and Boots.

 

What's your favourite colour of nail polish?

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

I haven't done purely matte & glossy nail art for a while so I simply must change that! Lovely people from Rimmel have sent me their Velvet Matte polishes so today I'll show you one of them. Velvet Matte collection has five shades in total.

 

Sumptuous Red is dark purple with a nice matte finish. The shade itself is very pretty although I really can't decide whether it's red or blue-based - what do you think? I applied two coats for perfect coverage and of course - no topcoat to keep that matte finish. It applied nicely but don't forget to let each coat dry properly to avoid patches.

I love the look of matte & glossy manicures so it was a no-brainer for me to do one. I opted for a dotted half moon style using only topcoat and dotting tool.

Very simple yet effective, isn't it? You can also do this by painting your nails with regular glossy finish, then use matte topcoat (Rimmel has one too) and then use topcoat and paint the dots. You will achieve almost or maybe even the same result.

 

The Rimmel Velvet Matte polishes are available at your local drugstore and supermarket that carries Rimmel products. In the UK they are for sure in Superdrug, Boots, Feelunique, Very.co.uk, Tesco, Asda and others.

 

Thank you for visiting and have a lovely day! Lucie x
