TOO PRETTY TO KONAD

I can't believe just how pretty one of the Rimmels I got the other day is! I used Rimmel - Killer Queen last night and I just fell in love with this color. I didn't even want to Konad over it, that's how pretty I thought it was. This color applied just ok, but after I looked at the bottle though, I realized it was a quick dry nail polish, so that explains the application issues. This shade of nail polish used to be my FAVE kind of nail polish to paint my nails with. These shades just work great with my skin tone and I just love them. I am planning to go back to Target and grab a couple more of this color. I need an extra for myself and a couple for some giveaways, this color is too nice not to share.



I had to use three coats of this color last night to smooth out all the "bald" spots on my nails, and then used my seche for my top coat. As expected, there was some tip pullage this morning. I didn't want that to detract away from the gorgeousness of the color, so I applied another coat of Killer Queen and Seche, so you might notice the thinness on the edges.

Can you see all that gold, shimmeryness? This was taken outside too.

Taken outside with the flash.






How pretty is this color?

Ay yi yi...that's a pretty color. And I love how it looks against the greenery. Hope I spelled that correctly...I'm too lazy to look it up. LOL!

Beautiful plum...I don't blame you for leaving it "bare"!

Vanessa said...

Really a stunning shade, looks great on you!

Velvet said...

This is so pretty! I like this kind of shade on my skin tone too! I don't think I've seen this Rimmel before. Maybe,I just haven't paid attention to it. Or over looked this color. Well...not anymore! Next time at Target. I will have to look for this color.

B- I think you spelled it right! lol I'm too lazy to word police you :) Thanks,I'm really diggin this color! I thought it looked really good with the green back drop of the plants too.

JAMIE - Thanks! I might do a konad over it tonight, but I had to leave one day of just enjoying the color as is.

VANESSA - Thanks!

VELVET - I think these might be discontinured. I think I saw something about it on Scrangies blog a while back, so you will have to check the clearance bins for these.

BELLA - Yes they do, they had out a couple different lines of polish if my memory serves me correctly.

Gosh, it's amazing! I totally love it! I have to find one similar to this on H2T or any where (We don't have this one in Sweden).

Brooke said...

ALEXLYNDRA - I'm sure there are tons of dupes to a color like this, I'm sure you will find something :) Sweden needs to get with the nail polish trend! Tell 'em I said so! lol
