Beauty Review: Rimmel 60 Second Nail Polish

Hello again guys; today’s post features one of my life’s loves; nail polish. I recently purchased the Rimmel London 60 Second nail polish (I’m not sure of the shade name) after using some other Rimmel polishes and having a good experience. Over the past couple of months I’ve been thinking about getting false nails, but in all honesty I really can’t be bothered to go and get them done or pay that much (when it's cheaper to do it yourself), even though they do look nice when done professionally. I like that I just paint my nails in my break at work and they look lovely with a bit of colour on; it makes my nails pop and my eczema less noticeable. Although, I would like them to be a bit longer my nails have been breaking a lot recently, which is super annoying and actually surprisingly painful. I somehow managed to find this gem of a nail polish in Poundland of all places; an absolute bargain! The lilac/purple shade is really attractive and not like any polish that I already had; for a mere £1 I was more than satisfied.

In terms of formula, the polish is quite thin; it needs at least two coats to make the colour fully opaque but that isn’t too much of an issue for me. What is an issue for me is how quickly this nail polish chips; I'm not the best at keeping up my polish but I do like it to last for at least 3 or 4 days before you can start noticing wear on the nails... Which this polish doesn't do, unfortunately, it literally started chipping at the edges towards the end of the same day. One of reasons why that really irritated me was not because of the price (as previously mentioned, it was excellent value for money) but because it's a good brand so I would expect the chipping issue to be less, but in fairness that can be resolved by topping up coats which although is a bit of a hassle, isn't a problem as such. Overall, I love the shade regardless of the fact that it chips like a bitch as it does look lovely on the nails. I feel like the nail polish and I are going to have a very love/hate relationship over the next few months as although I love how it looks, I can't help feeling a little disappointed with the quality, particularly as I've used other polishes from the same brand without the issues. A sad 2/5 for this one, purely because of the thin consistency and the need for reapplication. I love getting feedback, so please let me know in the comments if you like this kind of post! :)
