I’ve always been a huge fan of Rimmel nail polishes, they are seriously great. But Rimmel have outdone themselves with their new Salon Pro range, carrying on the Rimmel trend of gorgeous colours, affordable prices and a quick drying, shiny finish. This little beauty is Rimmel Salon Pro ‘Punk Rock’. *all the heart eye emojis*
Seventeen Baked Cherry
I have always had a soft spot for the Seventeen brand (or 17 as it was before their rebrand). It reminds me of being young and my first forays into make up. Their nail polishes are usually very good: super affordable, tons of beautiful colours, great application… which is why this one really disappointed me.
The brush was a complete nightmare. The bristles were all different lengths and really stiff which meant that neat application was impossible. I had to do so much clean up afterwards to get them looking acceptable which is very frustrating.
I’m hoping this was just a bad brush as I’ve had other bottles from the same range that are brilliant.
So ignoring the crappy brush, this colour is truly gorgeous. A very deep pinky red, that was a perfect 2 coater. Topped with Seche Vite, but shiny without it and quite fast drying as well. Just a shame that I probably won’t wear it again due to the awful brush…

Rapsodi Multivitamin 353
I have only tried one other Rapsodi polish (you can read about their seriously stunning neon pink HERE). I am so impressed considering these cost the grand price of 99p!
Kiko 240 Apple Red Review
I firmly believe that everyone should own a classic red nail varnish. Red polish not only goes with everything, but it also instantly dresses up an outfit and makes you feel oh so glamourous. I would like to put this polish forward as a candidate for the ultimate red nail varnish,
Kiko Apple Red is a blue-toned, red creme polish that applies unbelievably well. It is so flattering with my skin tone I never wanted to take it off. This is two coat perfection, topped with Seche Vite.
You can buy this amazing polish HERE.
Kiko 335 Ink Blue
Introducing yet another stunning blue polish from Kiko – one by one they are curing me of my aversion to blue nail varnish. It’s witchcraft, I am convinced of it!
Kiko 335 Ink Blue is shown here with 2 coats, but it could probably have done with 3 as there is still a bit of a visible nail line. This nail varnish dries very quickly and it is so shiny even without topcoat (the photos here do show the manicure with Seche Vite on though, I am not going to wait for nail varnish to dry. Ain’t nobody got time for that…)
You can buy this blue beauty HERE. I also did a comparison post as I have quite a few polishes that are similar in colour to this – you can find it HERE.
