NOTD | RIMMEL LONDON PRECIOUS STONES NAIL POLISH RUBY CRUSH REVIEW


I can't believe Christmas has been and gone already but alas I hope you all had a brilliant day and that your celebrations are ongoing. Happy Boxing Day to all. This post is for all the nail polish lovers out there, I actually picked up a few shifts over Christmas (double money!) and as a result had to leave my nails unpainted which I detest. I don't know what it is, but having painted nails is directly correlated to my overall mood, much like bubble bath quota. I have stumbled upon a beautiful nail polish that is like Christmas in a bottle, it was gifted to me via Influenster's latest VoxBox. Check out Friday's post for all of the other Rimmel goodies I received. Onto this perfect nail polish.


It is called Ruby Crush (£4) from the Precious Stones Collection. It is a super glam high coverage top coat and of course Ruby Crush is a gorgeous glittering ruby red with silver glitter. It has that gritty glitter polish finish and is quite buildable. I love how true red it is and the red to silver ratio is just perfect like 65:35. Not too much of one or the other, just the perfect balance. Enough red to scream it's Christmas and enough silver to make it holiday, but not enough silver to make it cross the line into tacky territory. I feel like I used far too much alliteration here. 


My favourite thing about the polish is the brush. I prefer wider brushes as it makes applying the polish really quick and easy, just two swipes and you are done. You have covered the whole nail. Above you can see the shape and size of the brush as well as what one coat of the nail polish looks like. It can be quite sheer, thus can be used as a topcoat. I am definitely interested to see what it looks like over other colours and if you don't want a solid over the top red silver explosion you can do a light wash of the colour. One thick coat or two normal coats is more than enough.


PROS

  • Intense and great colour
  • Buildable formula
  • Affordable
  • Excellent wide brush applicator one of my all time favourites 
  • Easy to remove which is atypical for glitter polishes, this one I can literally peel off using my nails

CONS

  • Flaky (in just one day wearing two coats)
  • Chips easily (in just one day wearing two coats)
  • Needs a top coat 
Of course I loaded on all the polish because having bare nails for three days makes me cry out for colour. It is really weird, I don't even like typing unless my nails are painted. Does anyone else have that? Thank you so much for reading this post. Come back on Friday for the rest of my Vox Box. Don't forget to leave me a comment and follow me on social media. It means so much. Take care.

What is your favourite colour to wear on your nails?

Love 
Kiran

  2. This polish looks beautiful! It's so sparkly and pretty. I haven't painted my nails in a while which is a shame because I absolutely love painting them (I suppose I'm just too lazy). This is definitely a shade that I would try!
