Rimmel Super Gel Polish


I treated myself to these polishes from Rimmel as they were 3 for 2 in Superdrug. I have 5 colours to share with you, so grab a drink as this will be a photo heavy post.

These are classed as a 2 step gel polish without the need to cure them under a lamp. You apply the colour (step 1) then the topcoat (step 2) and are said to last for 14 days. As I change my polish every day I will wear each of the 5 colours on my cindy hand one colour per nail and let you know how well this polish wears. I will post a photo on my Instagram.
Blue Babe.
This is a pretty shade, that in certain lighting looks almost purple. The brushes on these polishes are a nice size to apply the polish in only a few strokes. It seems self leveling and dries pretty quickly. The topcoat really does have a super glossy finish, just like a gel mani.

Rock N Roll
This is one absolutely amazing shade of red, that applied like a dream. Rock N Roll is one of my favourites from the 5 colours o bought. Just look at it with the topcoat.

Angel Wings
A proper girly pink with a slight silver shimmer. The first coat did seem streaky with this one, but with a second coat looked perfect. Maybe because it's a light colour.

Not a true red, but this one definitely a stunning colour, and beautiful for the Summer (when it arrives lol) These polishes have a shiny finish on their own...but they sure come to life with the topcoat.

Urban Purple
My second favourite from these 5. It belongs to the purple family, but not a true purple. It's more of a wine red shade, but an absolutely stunning colour.

Overall my first impressions of these 2 step gel polishes are a good one. The colours are beautiful,  brush size makes for easier application and the glossy finish is stunning. The only one thing if anything is the price, at £5.99 it's a bit pricey especially when you need to buy the topcoat aswell. I only purchased these as they were on a special offer. And of course I can't comment on how well they wear as I'm only on day 2. But it's looking good so far.
I will update on the wear as I said earlier, but let me know below if you've tried these.
Thank you so much for stopping by and until next time stay safe and much love...

  5. I love the pink! We get a handful of Rimmel colors here in the states, but I don't think I have ever tried anything except the clear coat. Great review and beautiful swatches!

  7. These are beautiful! I actually don't own any Rimmel polishes. I have to remind myself sometimes to not so quickly over look drug store polishes!
