Little Bo Peep

Rimmel rounds out my top three polish faves, alongside Models Own and Barry M. They always have a good choice of colours and their polishes have the cutest names! With prices ranging from £2.99 to £4.49, they are good value for nice long lasting formulas. However, my very favourite thing about Rimmel is their brush shape. Most of their products come with a flat, rounded 'Xpress' brush which makes painting your nails super quick and easy!

Some examples of the imaginative names...
Little Bo Peep; Mind The Gap, Victoria; Princess Pink; Round And Round The Garden; Caramel Cupcake; Blue My Mind; Portobello Pink
Ultra Violet; Peppermint

These Rimmel Pro polishes are two of my all time faves, you will have seen them both before on this blog. They are pretty old but the formula hasn't degraded at all. I wouldn't say they last up to 10 days, as advertised on the bottle, but they are fairly hard-wearing.

My most recent Rimmel purchase is Little Bo Peep, a soft pale grey, and I couldn't wait to use it for a mani. As I spend my days in an office, I'm always looking for perfect shades to create office-friendly designs. I use dots a lot in my nail art, but usually just to accompany something more complex. When working on my Grazia nail wheel I was inspired to try out more densely placed dots. 
This was so easy to create, just two coats of Little Bo Peep, a quick covering of dots using a Barry M nail art pen, and a splash of Seche Vite over the top. 

Dahlia Nails recently won Rimmel's weekly #NailTheLondonLook Instagram competition with our Mint Monochrome mani, so we're looking forward to finding out what's in our goody bag!
