Review: Rimmel Lycra Pro Nail Polish in Pop Rose


This is going to be a bit of a product rave!! I know I've reviewed the same polish in Oyster Pink, but I cannot tell you how much I adore this polish, in this particular colour!! If you'd like to know why, read on :)


What Rimmel say: Rimmel Lycra Pro Nail Polish has a 'revolutionary' wide, flat design engineered to adapt to all nail shapes and provide fast application with easier control for superior shine and wear. Rimmel Lycra Pro Nail Polish has a Lycra formula enriched with UV protection to deliver super-durable, chip-resistant and fade-proof colour for up to 10 days. Rimmel Lycra Pro Nail Polish gives you professional polished nails at your fingertips!

What I say: As I've reviewed this before, I'll say that I still agree with everything that Rimmel say here. This is just the most amazing colour I have ever seen (ok up until now anyway!). I wore this for about 6 days before I noticed any tip wear, which was minimal! I did take it off after 6 days so I can't comment as to whether it lasts for 10. I get bored too easily lol! Great colour, great consistency, fabulous brush!


What Rimmel say: Rimmel Lycra Pro Nail Polish features a 'breakthrough' Maxi Brush that makes application so simple. It's time to brush up your skills and polish your look.

What I say: I cannot tell you how much I LOVE the brush that comes as standard in the new Lycra Pro range. It makes application a lot easier and quicker. Pop Rose applies like a dream and you only need 2 coats in order to achieve opacity. Finish with a clear topcoat to achieve a high shine finish that will last for days!!
