Precious Stones

This week I've been sporting one of Rimmel's new glitter shades for Christmas 2012. They launched two shades as part of their 'Precious Stones' line at the beginning of the month and since I've recently re-discovered my love for disco-ball nails, they both caught my eye.

This shade is a lovely gunmetal glitter called Diamond Dust, but there is also a gorgeous ruby red (aptly named Ruby Crush)

I'm a huge lover of holographic polishes so it's nice to see them being picked up by high street brands a bit more recently. This polish has a lot of texture. In some lights it's almost cement-like, and while that doesn't sound all-too glamourous, something about it is really lovely, and perfect for this time of year.
It needs a good topcoat to give it a lovely shine (I would recommend Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri or Mega Shine) as it has quite a matte finish when used on it's own.

The one downfall with this polish is that it chips very easily. I got two days of wear before I had a couple of nails with huge chips, about 2 days less than my average polish wear-time.

You can pick this polish up now, priced at £3.99

  23. Ahhh love this! Looks nice and thick, hate when glitter polish isn't matte-like enough. Looks awesome having block colour then just ring finger in this.

    One question though, is it easy to take off ? I once put on glittery nail polish and it was a nightmare to get rid off.

  64. Went to get this and ended up buying another new Rimmel nail polish its one of the flip colours I don't know if you've tried it. Metal Rush flip your colour in Royal Blue it a real peacock of colour it has the dark royal blue and then a metallic purple and a winter green depending on the light. Wouldn't mind seeing you do a comparison on the other higher brands in this style of nail polish.

  65. I purchased both of the Precious Stones polishes last week and am currently rocking the 'Ruby Crush' - 48 hours in and I already have a couple of tiny chips, such a shame!
