Rimmel: Violet Metal

Rimmel Violet Metal (shimmer!)

This was my NOTD earlier last week before Liz came to visit. I recently picked up a couple of Rimmel polishes because I had heard good things about them and they are very affordable at CVS (less than $5, I believe). Not surprisingly, this immediately caught my eye. The bottle is very appealing: deep purple with bright blue shimmer.

When I first applied this, it was somewhat disappointing in the first coat. It went on kind of streaky and was a light purple-pink compared to the dark purple bottle. I ended up doing 3 coats because I really wanted the bottle color for this. It ended up being just fine, but I did have a bad taste in my mouth from the color until I got the 3 coats on.

It wore really well and the color grew on me after a few hours. I’m still not sure if it’s a “me” color, but I’ll try it again later in the year, I bet it will make a nice fall color. I will also continue to buy Rimmel polishes because I have been pleased with the colors and wear so far.

Can’t wait to paint,
