Rita Ora for Rimmel Nail Polishes

First and foremost, it's story time. These were something I'd been lusting after ever since I saw Suzie from Hello October wear 'Breakfast In Bed' in a vlog a month or two back. Instantly I searched online and found nothing but links to UK beauty suppliers that didn't ship internationally. A few weeks later on a browse through the ASOS beauty department they were spotted and I was so excited, but in the process of finding something else to bump up the $30 free shipping rule I saw an Instagram post from Rimmel AU signalling their impending release. I decided to wait, and a week before the release date I was happily surprised when I saw them displayed.

I finally had in my hands the much coveted "Breakfast In Bed" and I have never had a blue so milky! It is just such a pretty shade, think the effect of Essie 'Fiji' but blue - so perfect all year, but stunning in summer with a tan. It looks so flattering on the nails and I want to wear it forever, basically. Next I decided on "White Hot Love" because all of my white polishes either take 4 coats or chip after a day or two wear. This didn't disappoint in the slightest and has a pearlescence to it that isn't really detectable on the nails, but it definitely isn't as flat as the other whites I have tried.

When it comes to formulation the Rimmel polishes are some of my favourites. I own so many different shades, they are definitely the majority in my collection. The 60 Seconds formula in particular is amazing, not quite 60 seconds since I tend to put on thicker coats, but pretty damn close. These are dry to the touch on one hand by the time you've finished painting the other. With a topcoat they both lasted for the better part of the week, "Breakfast In Bed" lasting the longest on me. I highly recommend these polishes to anyone and the formulation is the best I've found especially for the price.

What other colours from this collection would you recommend? I think I want them all!
