White Hot NailsMonday, August 18, 2014
I never thought that I would fall in love with white nail polish, but I must admit that it has happened. For years I only used white as a base for brighter shades and never even considered wearing it alone. It wasn't until recently when I stumbled across a display for the new Rita Ora for Rimmel London nail polishes that I even looked at a white shade objectively.
Maybe my recent obsession with neutral griege tones has steered me in this direction or maybe it was completely circumstantial but either way I am so happy I bit the bullet. I ended up buying the 60 Second Nail Polish in White Hot Love and Breakfast in Bed - a Tiffany blue. The second I got home, I pulled out my manicure kit and dove right it. I must admit, these polishes are awesome! They claim to be opaque in one coat and to dry in 60 seconds flat and they are not lying! The brush is probably the best bit because it is a rather short but wide brush that literally covers the entire nail in one swipe - at least for me but I do have small nails. The formula is great, it is in fact opaque in one coat, it applies smoothly and it dries in seconds! I've read about issues with lasting power but I am going on day 4 with no chipping whatsoever.
Over these last 3 days, I have gotten quite a few compliments on my manicure and it has completely changed my views on white nails. Done right, a white nail is so incredibly chic and perfect for summer. It brightens up any complexion and although I wouldn't know, I'm sure it would look amazing with a tan.
If you haven't tried a white nail polish or even one of these amazing Rimmel London 60 Second Nail Polishes you need to get on it!
