Review: Rimmel Nail Color

I'm usually a klutz when it comes to applying nail color (ok, so that would actually apply to more then just nail color, lol). I have shaky hands I usually wind up with product on the skin around the nail. There has to be an easier way, right?

Fortunately, there is. Several brands have now incorporated a wide flat brush for ease in application & Rimmel's Lasting Finish Pro Nail Enamel is one of them.

As you can see in the photo I got the color Steel Grey, which I love. It's a gorgeous purpley-taupe shade! Now, on to the brush. I was able to apply this w/o any mishaps &, HOLY COW, it was so easy! The brush is wide enough to cover most of the nail, which results in not having to swipe the brush on the nail as much & it being flat definitely helps in spreading the color evenly. I love this brush!

The formula glided on super smooth w/o streaking or clumping & you only need 2 coats for good coverage or 3 for full opacity. I rather like the look of 2 coats, which is how many I'm wearing in the photo. As to whether or not this will last for 10 days like the product claims, I don't know. However, if you use a good topcoat you should be able to extend the wear of your nail color. Even if this doesn't last 10 days I love it & would buy it again because of the ease of application & the smoothness of the formula.

Have you, my readers, tried this product? What did you think of it? Let me know in the comments! :)
