Did some swatching for you all last night. First up I have the two new Rimmels I got. I found these at Walgreens for $3.99 each. About $4 is all I think a drugstore brand of nail polish should go for (I'm talking to you Sally H.!).
I got onto Rimmel's website in hopes of finding out more information on this new line of nail polishes, but they have not updated their site with any information yet. UGH!! Huge pet peeve. I would much rather a company NOT have a website if they aren't going to keep it up to date with current information. I did send an email though requesting more information on this collection and hope to get a response back soon.
This is one of those colors that can change depending on what lighting you are in. This can look grey, mushroom, khaki or mauve. I really liked this color, but was surprised that it was pretty sheer in the first coat. This polish does require three coats to be opaque. You could get away with two if you apply very carefully though.
I would love this if it would have stayed a little bit more purple. The flash I used made the purple of this color stand out more than it did in just regular lighting. Even with all that, I did really like this color. Do you see how shiny that baby is?
As far as this new line of polishes, I really, really liked these. My hope is that they are planning to come out with some more adventurous colors though. I love the price and will be getting more of these.
