Hello! I have over 80 different nail varnishes if we aren't including back ups (god forbid they discontinue my favourite shades!) but there are 3, all from the same range that really have my heart. I tend not to waste my time and money on more expensive polishes and focus on those on offer in Boots at drugstore prices. You get the best out of the drugstore when it comes to nails, from Barry M's Gelly Hi-Shine's to Maybelline's Super Stay 7, but Rimmell's 60 Second polishes have a very special place in my heart. I honestly don't know why I don't own more. Perhaps part of the reason is that I mostly only wear these three shades!

Rose Libertine is my all time favourite nail polish shade. My nail varnish storage is a blur of pink's but this is one that I can't help but put on my nails. A kind of dusty rose colour that isn't bright, neon or too dark. It's just perfect and it has lasted 7 days on my nails in the past with minimal tip wear and chips on many occasions. That is a winner.

The next two I have are from Rita Ora's range - White Hot Love and Breakfast in Bed. White Hot Love is, unsurprisingly, a white. It is opaque in 2 coats and is slightly pearlized. This isn't noticeable in all lights and I actually think it fades after a day or two of being on your tips. Also, doesn't look like Tipex which is a massive bonus. As with Rose Libertine, the formula is spot on and I can wear it for 5-7 days before I need to take it off (and reapply straight away!)

Breakfast in Bed is a minty blue, rather than a minty green such as Pillow Talk from her range. This colour really enhances my tan that I got last week and I really love it. It also goes with my phone case, which I think is so cute. I haven't worn it without changing my colour before it gets awful yet, but if they're consistent it should be the same as the others!

The brushes and formulas for all polishes are on point. The brushes allow you to coat your nail in one or two swipes and the formula just lasts bloody well and is super shiny. When winter roles around, I will definitely be investing in some darker colours from Rimmel's 60 Second range but in the meantime I've got my beady eyes on Lose You Lingere and Pillow Talk (both by Rita Ora) as well as Mind The Gap Victoria from their permanent collection. With the £3.69 price tag, I can't fault these beauties. I'd be happy to just have this range as my whole nail polish collection!

Have you tried any of Rita Ora's colours? Or any from their permanent collection?


  1. I really like Rimmel's nail polishes, especially their 60 second range. Have you tried any polishes from Rimmels Lasting Finish Pro range? The quality of them are amazing and they last so well on my nails!
    Great post!!
