Sneaking off to the makeup aisle last time I was in ASDA, I spotted this polish and realised I didn't have a true red creme, non-shimmer polish - I know, it's a shocking absence of a fundamental shade - so I grabbed a bottle of Rimmel 60 Seconds - Ready, Aim, Paint! to fill the gap.
This is a lovely red creme which actually looks nice against my skintone. Coverage is good and it could be a one-coater but it's hard to work with. You have to be quick at doing each nail because it goes tacky and starts to drag in about 6 seconds, a side effect of its fast-dry formula. The brush is wide and easy to use, which helps a bit.
The application issues are probably my poor technique! For £2.48 I can put up with slightly trickier application but I know this would bug some people. Each coat dried within the 60 seconds advertised. All pictures are 2 coats, with Orly Bonder as a basecoat and no topcoat (I was adding glitter afterwards). Cleanup was a bit of a nightmare (pink cuticles, what joy) and I'm pretty sure this is a stainer, so basecoat those nails!
What do you think? Are you prepared to overlook trickier polishes if they cost less?
