TGIF! I have to admit, I tend to think of drug store nail polish as being “less than” other polishes. I do not know why, it’s just ingrained in my head for some reason. I think part of the blame can be placed on the bottle shape. Generally I don’t think the bottle shapes  look “sophisticated”  and they mostly lean towards looking like the 80’s to me, but I AM starting to open my eyes, look past the bottles and am finding some awesome polishes. In this case Rimmel’s new 60 Seconds colors for spring. Pics taken in sun and shade with no top coat. FYI the top pics are my old watermarked format and the other two are the newer one.

I am pretty sure there are a lot of you out there who are loving this one. Camouflage is a super killer grass green with shimmery gold and it really does dry uber fast. It only needed two coats and the application was smooth, silky and fabulous!

I don’t know why but when I first saw this I thought for sure it was going to be really sheer going on but it wasn’t. This was almost a one coater but I did two anyway. It’s a great flamingo hot pink shimmer and the application on this one was really great as well. Normally I would never even think to buy a color like this, but it was so flattering on and would make such a great pedi color for a tropical vacation (a girl can dream can’t she?)

How cool is this one? This was tied with Camouflage as my favorite. The color is a dark purple with pink/red/gold shimmer. What I love about this is that even though it’s really dark, it doesn’t look black in low light. It also has that lit from within glow about it. This was two coats as well and again with the nice application. As far as staying power, I haven’t worn them long enough to try them out but will keep you posted.

Which are your favs?
