NOTD: Christmas Nails #2 | Rimmel Precious Stones (Diamond Dust)

Christmas Nails #2
RRP: £3.99

Happy 12th December ladies - 12.12.12 the last repeating date of our lifetime! I'm only mentioning this because it has amused me how wild Twitter went at 12.12pm this afternoon and all the screenshot pictures that went up of the date and time saying 12:12 12.12.12! Easily amused, aren't we all. But dates aside, today I am bringing you some more glitter nails. Yes, more.
This is the second of two nail varnishes in a new collection from Rimmel; the Precious Stones range. The other shade is a glitter red varnish called 'Ruby Crush' which you can see in my Christmas Nails #1 post: here. Ruby Crush is an opaque red glitter with larger pieces of silver glitter within it, whereas Diamond Dust is a less opaque, but still high coverage, grey/silver glitter with larger holographic pieces in. Diamond Dust took three coats to achieve the look shown above (which makes me dread the day I need to take it off!) and it has a very gritty finish to it, which is nothing that a top coat can't solve.
I love the contasting effect given by the more matte grey/silver glitter in comparison to the highly eye-catching holographic particles suspended within it. This nail varnish is so cheap, retailling at just £3.99 and creates such a beautiful festive look! I also love the really wide brushes on Rimmel polishes that offer quick and easy application, coating the whole nail in just one stroke, and also how quickly these dry - there is no hanging around with tacky nails for up to an hour like with some glitter varnishes; it's literally minutes until it's dry as a bone and you're good to go!
I would highly recommend Rimmel Precious Stones - 001 Diamond Dust to anybody!

  8. I love how pretty glitter polish's look, but they are such a pain to get off! I did read a good tip to get them off is to put a cotton pad soaked in nail polish remover on your nails and cover your fingertips in tin foil and to let it soak in for about 10 minutes and it should be alot easier to remove, I am yet to try it though!

  9. so gorgeous! bargain too!
