Rimmel London’s take on classic French nails is a range called Brit Manicure. It includes two nail tip colour lacquers with extra thin brush and two full on nail colour polishes with an extra wide brush. The idea is that by mixing and matching the four colours you’ll create your own version of the Rimmel Brit Manicure.
We recently tried two shades from the new range - Rimmel 447 Right Royal Red and 433 Ivory Tower, here’s what we thought.
Application: Extra-wide brush makes application of nail colour shades very easy. Pictured, the base is two coats and nail tip – one coat/stroke.
Finish: Very glossy finish. Pictured, no top coat.
Wearability: Chipped on the 2nd day. Maybe because we didn’t wear top coat during the experiment.
Overall Impression: Not sure how much the Rimmel Brit Manicure differs from French nails but having polishes in matching colour shades with extra thin and extra wide brushes for easy application is something any French manicure fan would find convenient.
Availability: now, $8.95 from Priceline (in Australia), Target, Kmart and selected pharmacies.
