Rimmel Rita Ora – Tangerine Tent

I think I’ve gone a bit orange cray cray… but it is getting warmer out there and so I think I can let myself get away with this.  I picked this up with some other cosmetics in a 3 for 2 in Superdrug.  I figured it was worth a try.  So lets check out some pictures!

Despite the slightly ridiculous festival style name, Tangerine Tent is the perfect juicy orange shade.  Its bright and happy.  What you see above is two easy coats over a base of Nailtiques 2.  I did use a top coat here, my Nails Inc Kensington Top Coat, but it does dry to a high shine finish.  I just wanted to ensure a good wear time so chose to top coat.  You could skip this step.

I think for a cheap, good quality polish, you can’t go far wrong here.  Formula is easy to work with and it does dry on the quick side.  There is a good range of colours and the little flower detail on the cap is cute and so you know if the shade you want is part of the Rita Ora range.

Let me know what you think in the comments.  Did you pick up any of the Rita Ora Festival Shades?

Spotted! Spring 2015 Rimmel London

I just happened to pop into my local Superdrug when I spotted new Rita Ora shades for Rimmel London. As you can see below, the new Rita Ora shades have cute flowers on the cap so that you can easily spot them amongst the wider range. According to the website, there are twelve shades in this release. Lets take a closer look…..I also saw this rather large stand on the way out, not sure how I missed it on the way in!As well as new Rita Ora shades, I also noticed new inserts in the main Rimmel Nail Bar wall.  These are Sweetie Heart polishes and appear to have a matte finish, five shades here in shades reminiscent of Swizzle Matlow Love Hearts,.Then, I saw these below the Sweetie Heart shades, another range of five polishes called Pearly Queen (nothing on the Rimmel London website yet)It does look as if the whole 60 Second Line has had a revamp, the bottles look like they have had a facelift, but not sure if that includes a formula re-brand or not. I was with a friend of mine, who bought the mint green 60 seconds polish and she was able to coat her nails twice within 5 mins. They were touch proof within 60 seconds and rock hard in about 4-5mins. Impressive.

I’ve not tired them myself yet.  Have you?  if so, do let me know in the comments.  Have you seen these in your local stores yet?  Anything catch your eye?

Spotted! New Rimmel glitter topper polishes

I caught a glimpse today of the new polishes by Rimmel, some of which look very Christma-sey. These are the Glitter Bomb top coats and they come in five colour ways – gold, silver, pink, blue and red.

IMG_6461Here you can see the image inserts for them, they look very glitzy in the images.

IMG_6457This shows them alongside the new Velvet Matte polishes which came out in September.

IMG_6458This one is very Christmas….

IMG_6459And finally, an addition to the Rita Ora line, a pop art top coat. I’ve not noticed this before so I’m not 100% sure its new.

IMG_6460Anything catch your eye this time around?  If so, or if you’ve seen anything new, do let me know in the comments!
