I have had so much amazing feedback following my Rimmel Review post – which you can find here. THANK YOU YOU LOVELY PEOPLE! In the post I show you lovely lot all the amazing gifts I received from the amazing people over at Beauty at Tesco and Rimmel. I was very luck to receive a big bundle of goodies including make up, chocolates and nail polish. As a result I have had lots of you asking to see more of the nail polishes. Well, if you know me AT ALL you will know that I am obsessed with nail art, nail polish … anything nail inspired! So, of course I am thrilled to be bringing you this post of a review on the incredible Rimmel Glitter Nail Polish!
Here is my take on a classic look – a nude base with ombre glitter at the tip of the nails. It’s been a popular choice of mine so I hope you enjoy!
The pictures aren’t doing the best bit of justice to the look as the different colours of glitter from the Rimmel Love Glitter polish can matte together. For this look I used some of my staple favorites for when it comes to nail art!
I always trust BarryM‘s products – especially for nail care! So, naturally I started with the BarryM plump base and top coat. It keeps my nails strong and helps the darker colours not bleed into my nail layer. It helps the nail polish have a great finish keep its plump look – closely achieving the gel look!
To start the look I applied the uber luxurious and thick YSL Nail polish that I received from my gorgeous best friend for Christmas! It’s my first application of the gorgeous nude tone (Beige Leger) and it is gloriously nude with a hint of pink. It’s very thick and easy to apply with my fave type of nail polish brush – a flattened tip which makes life just so much easier!
Next up, I applied the Love Glitter Nail Polish that I was sent from Rimmel. As it’s just a shards of glitter in a clear nail polish and I wanted more of a layered effect, I painted it onto a sponge first and then dabbed several layers onto my nails to get the desired effect. I wanted the look to be as ombre as possible – which proved more difficult than previously thought, as the glitter shards are different sizes and shapes so when I would prefer to have minimal at the top of my nail, near the cuticle, and more at the bottom this did not happen easily. That’s fine though as the look still has the desired effect, if just not as clean as I’d have hoped.
Once the glitter layers had dried I simply added over the top more of BarryM’s top coat! It’s as simple at that! What do you think of the look? I will be using the Love Glitter Polish lots – especially in the Summer!
