Rimmel London Rita Ora Colourfest 2015 Review & Swatches

Hi everyone! I’ve just checked back and it’s nearly a whole month since I’ve posted… I’m so sorry! My life has been a bit crazy hectic the last few weeks. I hope you’ve had a good month anyway. June marked the 6th year of my relationship, and a fresh new haircut, as well as some gorgeous weather which is brilliant when you live just by the sea!

Aaaanyway… about 2 months ago (where does the time go?!) Rimmel very kindly sent me a huge package of nail polish to review – I think the total was around 50 nail polishes which, as I’m sure you can imagine, was an amazing surprise. I’ve felt a little overwhelmed with how to get them all done though, hence the length of time it’s taken me to post this! I should probably stop waffling now though 🙂

This is the Rimmel London Rita Ora Colourfest collection – 2015 edition. If you remember last March, Rimmel brought out the first Rita Ora Collection which I blogged about at the time (check out the differences between my swatches then and now!), which was a really nice 12-strong collection with lots of staple colours. This one is the same, again with 12 colours, but a lot more spring/summery than last time 🙂 These also have a festival-theme which you will notice from the names!

These are all 60-second nail polishes (although I don’t think it’s necessarily actually 60 seconds, they are pretty quick drying), and Rimmel claim these to be 3-in-1 (basecoat, colour and topcoat). Personally I think you should always use basecoat to prevent staining and drying of the nails, but these are glossy enough to skip the topcoat.

Rimmel Rita Ora Collection Review & Swatches

Hey everyone! Bit of a long post today, so grab a cuppa! Rimmel were kind enough to send me the whole new Rita Ora Collection, which is super duper exciting for me!! Rimmel are always fantastic for creating staple shades which look great alone or as underwear for a glitter, so they are must-haves in my eyes, and this collection is no exception. I have to confess to not knowing a lot about Rita herself, other than that she’s a British singer songwriter with a much-envied style! She apparently created these shades and named them which is pretty cool 🙂 the names are a little risqué, but you know how I like raunchy polish names! Such fun, in the words of Miranda’s mother!

These polishes are all in the 60 seconds range, which means they should be touch dry within 60 seconds. Great if you’re in a rush, as long as it does actually dry in that time! I have to mention the packaging quickly – I just adore the pop-arty stamps on the brush handles, and I especially love the fact that the background on each stamp matches the colour of the polish in that bottle, as well as the nails on the stamps too… it’s the little things!
