My introduction with Rimmel Polishes didn't start very well. I couldn't handle the 'nail tip' whitener and I didn't get on well with Beige Babe.
However when I first saw a friend of mine wearing Rimmel in Pulsating (619) I just couldn't sit still until I got my hands on it. Pulsating is the most gorgeous pink with a strong blue iridescence. Just look at it and tell me in the eyes it's not gorgeous. You can't. It's just too beautiful for words. Yes, I am aware that I already own 2 bright pink with also a strong flashing blue iridescence, Nails Inc Montrose Place, and NYC Love Me Red Creme but none of the former sport the amazing wide 'Xpress Brush 1 Sec' brush.
I know for fact that this polish will become a little bit thick half way through the bottle: when I first painted it on my nails, I borrowed my friend's nail polish, it was a little bit thicker than I would have liked. But it's nowhere near as unusable as Gloope Vite (Seche Vite) or as Collection 2000 hot polishes who separate into oil, even if you haven't opened the bottle!!
My photos show 2 coats of pulsating. A third coat would have made the tip a little bit more covered but with this colour (incidentally as with the 2 other pinks I own) I didn't mind a little bit of tip showing. How many times can you say 'a little bit' in a blog post? Because I think I have broken the record here.
PULSATING WITH FLASH
I hope you will also excuse the overdose abundance of photos. The colour is so gorgeous that it was impossible to narrow my selection any further.
I have a few dark metallic / gunmetal grey polishes in my collection but I have never actually purchased a real silver polish. I am more of a golden girl really. Not that you can't both like silver and gold, but I have always preferred gold over silver. I find gold to be warmer and more complimentary to my skin tone. Rimmel, Your Majesty (shade 239) is exactly what you would think of if you imagined a typical silver polish. In fact, they should have just called it 'Silver' or 'Majestic Silver' as it is so representative of the silver colour, I doubt anyone will be remembering its fancy name shade. Boring, moi?
PHOTOS WITH FLASH:
Your Majesty didn't have a wide brush but its application was easy. I found the formula to be just perfect and I was able to apply it very sloppily and still happy with the results. What I was most impressed about was its drying time. I was scared the polish would be too brushstroky (i.e when you see all the brushstrokes, is the word for that ‘streaky’?) but ‘Her Majesty’ proved me wrong. Is the colour ‘me’ though? I sincerely don’t know. I think I like it under certain lightings. Fans of silver would love this polish though and at only £2.99, I can't see why you should hold back: Get it!
Overall, I am super delighted about my Rimmel Purchases and would recommend these polishes in a (pulsating) heart beat.
