Now that summer is on it’s way, it’s time to freshen up our nails and put away the deep plums and dark reds. And dig out the bright summer colours! And one of my favourite summer nail launches is from Rimmel. If you’ve not tried the Rimmel 2 Step Super Gel polishes before then you need to. Especially if you like the idea of gel nails that will go the distance without the need for a UV lamp. But with the added benefit of super shinny and long lasting gel nails. And their Super Gel Beach Ready collection is bound to get you ready for the sunshine.
The new range includes five incredibly wearable shades that I’ve been wearing on my nails for a few weeks now. And I love them all! The brush is slightly wider than other nail polish brushes which means you can get a nice even coat every time. The trick to these polishes is to allow each coat to dry before applying the next, or the top coat. The colours are true to the bottle and for most of them you only need to apply two thin coats. For Purple Splash and Coral Queen, I found three coats worked better for a more opaque look.
The five colours are:
- Purple Splash: a pastel lilac
- Sun Fun Daze: a raspberry pink
- Coral Queen: a brighter orange
- Dive Right In: a bright baby blue
- Flamenco Beach: a blue toned red
