Ladies, it’s time to put down the red paint and go au natural.
The festive season may be over and glitter polishes are probably being put back on the shelf, but don’t fear – a nude polish is in town. This chic nail paint in ‘Let’s Get Nude’ from Rita Ora’s collection for Rimmel is the perfect polish to cover your nails with this season. If you’re like me then your nails probably haven’t seen daylight for a while, hidden underneath pretty shades of red, gold and glitter galore, so I’m opting for a natural look for the whole of January – Go nude or go home.
I’ve searched high and low (far and wide?) for the perfect nude shade, and I think this may be it. The best thing about it – it will go with everything in your wardrobe! Pretty perfect, huh?
I’ve had this shade on my nails for a week now and the longevity is amazing. I’m wearing two coats of polish and a top coat, and after initially finding the application not terribly great I gave it a second chance and had no problems. The applicator is shaped perfectly to fit your nail shape so less mess should be made. I will say that patience is key, and sometimes applying a base coat underneath will lengthen the drying time (opt out if you only have a few minutes).
Despite the colour still going strong I plan on taking it off this weekend and will stick to just a clear base coat for a week to show my nails a bit of love. Even though it’s a pale shade and shouldn’t discolour them too much, I do believe that giving your nails a bit of a break for even just 3 or 4 days does them the world of good.
I’m still in denial the festive period is actually over *sigh*, so I’ve painted one nail with Essie’s ‘Beyond Cozy’ – what do you think?
