Rimmel Lasting Finish Shade 055 – Sunshine Review

Recently you may remember I did my first review of another Rimmel Lasting Finish Nail Polish. I loved the colour and pigment of the last one, so when I saw this polish, full of sunshine and promising a glimpse of spring time, I had to have it. I had great expectations for this particular polish. I thought it would definitely help me welcome in the long awaited spring season.


However, I have to say, Ive never been quite so disappointed on a Nail Polish in my life…. EVER!


The photo shows my nails after FOUR coats of the polish and Im not sure if you can see, but the product is still patchy and uneven in colour. Not only that, the colour was more ‘jaundice’ than ‘spring-time’. I didnt even keep this one for 1 full day, thats how much I disliked it. I was actually rather embarassed to be seen wearing it.


I did try to redeem it with some Barry M ‘Amethyst Glitter’, which certainly did help a little bit, but not quite enough.


Rimmel Lasting Finish Nail Varnish Review

I found this lovely nail varnish yesterday. The colour really stood out from the rest. This varnish has a satin finish and a medium pigment level. It needs two coats minimum for a solid colour. This particular shade is ‘703 Pear Drop’.

The name is fitting for the varnish, as this is one of the only nail varnish from the cheaper price bracket that hasn’t chipped or peeled. It really does have a ‘lasting finish’.

The price of this varnish was £2.50. A worth while little bargain buy in my mind.

What do you think of the colour?
