NOTD: Rimmel 60 Seconds in ‘Blue My Mind’
Earlier this week I received a lovely little package in the post from RaRa Reid. I was lucky enough to win her first giveaway and the prize was a pink nail art pen, a set of nail wraps and this nail varnish – Rimmel 60 Seconds in shade ’810 Blue My Mind’. Thanks Ra!
I have always rather liked Rimmel’s range of 60 Seconds nail varnishes as they tick so many boxes, and ‘Blue My Mind’ is no exception. As you can see from the sticker on the lid, the varnish has an ‘Xpress Brush’, which is wide so covers each nail completely with the right amount of pressure. Though it takes more than ’1 Sec’ to achieve even coverage, the wide brush means application is very quick and takes very few strokes of the brush. It only takes two coats of the varnish for fully opaque coverage as well, which in my eyes is all it should take – any more is too many!
As you would expect, the varnish dries in ’60 Seconds’. I only had to leave a minute between applying each coat, so by the time I had painted the nails on both hands, the first hand was ready straight away for its second coat. As such, the whole mani took less than five minutes which is extremely speedy! Perfect for a quick fix before an impromptu night out, or even before leaving for work of a morning.
The coverage in the photo above may look slightly blotchy, and though I was left with some fabric imprints in the top coat when I woke up, most of the ‘blotchiness’ is actually just reflections of the clouds and trees! That’s just how shiny the finish of this varnish is.
‘Blue My Mind’ is a really stunning shade of royal blue. I’ve really taken to blue varnishes this year and this has to be the most beautiful blue that I own. In unnatural light it looks very deep and almost black, but in natural sunlight the azure hues really pop, which reminds me a lot of the ocean on a sunny day.
The only thing that disappoints me about this varnish is that, after less than 24 hours, there are already signs of wear at the tips of my nails (which is visible in the photo above), but luckily there’s been no chipping.
Overall, another fine example of an excellent nail varnish from the Rimmel 60 Seconds range!
