Rimmel London Swatches and Review!

* The following nail polishes were sent to me for my honest review. For more information, please visit my disclosure policy.*

Hello Lacquer Lovers! 
Today I have seven Rimmel London Lasting Pro Finish nail polishes to show you!
I loved all of the polishes and I know you will too!

 The Rimmel London lasting pro collection is said to be "super durable chip resistant nail lacquer with shine release complex". According to the bottle it is supposed to last up to 10 days. 
All of these photos were taken in natural sunlight and I finished off each manicure with top coat. 

Rimmel London French Manicure Duo in French Rose & French White Nail Tip Liner
 I started off with one coat of French Rose (pictured above). It had a standard wide brush, which I liked, and had a great dry time. Next, I used the French White Nail Tip Liner and free-handed the smile lines. This brush is exactly what it sounds like, a nail liner.  It was much easier than I thought it would be. I finished the manicure off with another coat of French Rose and top coat. 
I was very impressed with this duo and I would definitely recommend it to those who like doing their own french manicures. 

Rimmel London Baby Pink
Baby Pink is a light pink with a creme formula. I had to use three coats for it to be completely opaque, but that is to be expected from a light pink polish. The formula was good for a creme and it had a great dry time. This polish looks great on it's own and could rock some serious glitter if it wanted too!

Rimmel London Spice Romance
 Spice Romance is a pumpkin color with a silver shimmer. As most shimmers, Spice Romance had a streaky looking application for the first coat, but after a second coat and a top coat it smoothed itself out to a nice finish. It, like the other polishes, had a great dry time. This is the perfect shimmer for fall, but it would look great year around. 

Rimmel London Street Grey
Street Grey is also another perfect fall color! Here, I used two coats of Street Grey. Although it looks grey on the nail, in the bottle is looks like it leans more taupe. This is my favorite polish from the seven I was sent. I love it and I know you will too!

Rimmel London Rags to Riches
Rags to Riches is the second shimmer from this group. It is a hunter green polish with what seems to be a rose gold shimmer. Like Spice Romance, the first coat was streaky, but it smoothed itself out with another coat and top coat.

Rimmel London Black Satin
Black Satin is a black creme that is opaque in two coats. The formula was great, along with the dry time. This is my new go to black creme, so you'll probably see it around here a lot. 

Of course, I cannot have swatches without some sort of nail art, especially when one of them is a nail liner!

Here I used two coats of Black Satin as my base. I went in with the French White Nail Tip Liner and made random lines and spots to give an abstract effect. I then topped the lines with a franken I made, Glitz & Glam, which is a holographic top coat.

 I had a swatching buddy, who liked photo-bombing many of my photos, Ice!

Overall, all of the polishes were great! They can be picked up at many drugstores, so next time your at your local store, stop and grab some!
I'd like to say thanks again to my wonderful PR rep for sending me these!
See you all on Sunday! <3
