Rimmel London New Super Gel Beach Ready Collection

Rimmel London New Super Gel Beach Ready Collection
The Super Gel Beach Ready Collection from Rimmel consists of five incredible summery shades of nail polish and they form a 2 step application that it is claimed will:
  • Give you Gel Nails
  • Up to 14 days wear
  • No UV Lamp Needed
I love my gel nails, well in truth I am Shellac girl because one thing which really winds me up is going to all the hassle of painting your nails, which can be quite a traumatic process lets face it, for them to chip before you leave the house.  Nail polish chips just do not look good, much like having the one shade of foundation or being a tad orange from your fake tan - both a big no-no from me.

The Five shades within this collection are:
  • Coral Queen - A beautiful orange shade
  • Purple Splash - Less purple more a Lilac/Lavender shade
  • Dive Right In - A beautiful bright blue
  • Sun Fun Daze - A bright pink
  • Flamenco Beach - Red. No collection seems complete without a red.

To use, the directions tell you to apply 1-2 thin, even coats of your chosen Super Gel shade and for this polish, a base coat is not required, so that is a huge plus point for me.  Once the polish dries and you need a good 4-5 minutes before it is no longer tacky.  What I love about these polishes, other than the shades is the brush, which Rimmel refer to as being a Maxi Brush. It is short and fan and one swipe down the nail is enough to give good and even coverage.  I am quite particular about nail polishes brushes and this one is in my view perfect.  Once your nails are dry, you then apply the Super Gel top coat, only one coat of this is needed and it is this gel coating that activates the 14 days of wear.

I opted to test the Purple Splash shade on my fingers and SunFun Daze on my toes.  Three weeks on and there is no chipping on my toes and I have worn my FitFlops every single day, but for me, polish on my toes never ever chips.  On my fingernails, the polish lasted 5 days before the first chip happened in whilst I was opening the post at work with a letter opener and then as soon as you get one you know that it is game over.

Now I am happy with my polish lasting for 5 days in all honesty and it is much longer than it usually lasts without having Shellac applied.  Each polish retails for £5.99 and is currently on a 3 for 2 right here.  The top coat is also £5.99 here and is part of the 3 for 2 deal.
