Rimmel "Marine Blue"

Hi there readers. I hope this post finds you well. Today is Wednesday so if you're having a tough week you're 1/2 way though! I am still experiencing a tremendous amount of stress. Being unemployed for over 1 year after working so hard to finish law school is an amazing let down. Oh well, that's life, eh?

Today I have some older photos to show you. I don't even know when I took these but I do know it was a few months ago. I don't think I like my nails this long, do you?

This is Rimmel's Marine Blue these polishes are found in your local CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, places like that. I find them to be amazing quality at an affordable price, just $3.99 and sometimes Buy-One-Get-One-Free! These polishes have a great flat wide brush. I don't normally like wide brushes (OPI) but I like FLAT wide brushes like this one. Application is so flawless on all of the Rimmel polishes I have tried and this is no exception. The formula is fantastic, no streaking, opacity in just two coats and no thick messy goops.

The color on this one is a frosty blue. It's a light to medium blue with a fine blue duochrome. I tend to lean toward cremes but this is a pretty duochrome. I think it's a color a lot of people will enjoy.

So have you tried Rimmel polishes? What are your favorites by them? Do you like the brush? Do you like the formula?

Pretty color!! It seems that light blue is THE color for this Spring.

I bought Steel Grey a while back because I thought the color (while neither steel nor grey) was such a pretty taupe. Once I used it I absolutely fell in love! They apply like a dream, the brush is a little odd at first but so easy to use. And it also wears so well. I can easily go 5-7 days with this on with minimal wear. I bought Hot Cocoa and Violet Metal the other day too just because I love the formula so much. I wish they had more of "my kind" of colors!

I agree Megan it's great for spring!!

Meeka -I love Steel Grey as well! A wonderful color. I agree - looking at the brush you're like "what is this!!?" but once you use it it's perfection! I wish there were more of my type of colors too! Rimmel are you listening?!?!

This is so pretty! I love it!

I have this color, too! Only mine looks darker. It has a very nice textured look to it that I like.

Ohhhh I really like! I never tried the rimmels ill have to pick one up ;)

Tasha, you will become addicted to Rimmel their product is so great! Let me know if you get this!
