Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro

This is my favorite "drugstore" brand.  The brush is perfection, as is the application for *most* of the polishes. My only complaint?  They need to produce more colors!!!

Here are a few swatches...

Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro Steel Grey

Steel Grey with Love & Beauty Silver/Clear glitter layered on top

This is the closest "dupe" I can find for Chanel Particuliere and it's my "go-to polish.  A great neutral with enough contrast against my pasty-pale skin not to wash me out.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro Marine Blue
 No complaints on this one - I don't do blues well, but I think this had just enough green in it to work.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro Violet Metal

Rimmel Lasting Pro Violet Metal

The Violet Metal is the only one so far with which I've had application problems - and that's not to say that it's not still okay, but I'm lazy. I don't like to have to do cleanup or wait too long between coats. The color is worth it, though.  Just like the name indicates, it's a metal violet.  The color doesn't disappoint.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro Crushed Pearl

The Crushed Pearl is very translucent, which is not really my thing. I have nails (even without polish stain) that are on the yellowish side, which distorts sheers more than I am comfortable with.  I do wear it when I chop all my nails off though.

These photos are older, but from now on, when taking photos for the blog, I will make sure to do closeups so that the color is shown in the best, truest light.
