Rita Ora for Rimmel - Roll in the Grass & Rain Rain Go Away ♥

I've always found Rimmel to have great quality polishes, a wide range and fairly great prices. When I saw the new Rita Ora Spring/Summer collection for 2015 I quickly fell in love. They were gorgeous brights, pretty pastels and classic nudes. The names of the polishes all inspired by summer with a huge festival vibe about them; Port-aloo-blue, Peachella and Glastonberry to name a few. There's 12 new shades added to the 60 second super shine collection and I'm pretty sure you'll be picking up a couple, if not all, yourself.

 I chose shades Roll in the Grass and Rain Rain Go Away

Roll in the Grass is the most gorgeous turquoise shade. It's definitely more on the blue side and reminds me of the Tiffany gift boxes. I did expect it to be much more greener - the promo pics are very deceiving. I found this to be a little sheer with first application, but depending on how much you apply this could certainly be done in 2 coats but I needed 3 for full-coverage. This was on for about 4 days before the chipping became too noticeable.

Rain Rain Go Away isn't my typical go-to shade. I'm not much of a nude person at all and usually find it to be the most boring nail polish colour ever, but I really fell in love with this shade. I find this is between a grey and brown - and for me, it's the most perfect nude shade. I applied 2 shades for great coverage and it lasted an impressive 7 days with slight tear and wear on 2 nails - seriously impressive.

I haven't bought a 60 second nail polish for a couple of years now and I'm really impressed. The formula is better than ever and the wider brush makes application so much easier, faster and neater. For £2.99 these are a real bargain and come highly recommended from me. Yesterday, when I wrote this, Superdrug had them on offer for just £1.99 each. Delivery is free on orders over £10 so it's well worth stocking up now. I know I have my eye on a couple more shades.
