Summer is slowly creeping up on us and I can't wait to feel the sun on my skin and sit on a gorgeous beach! Although, I feel like there's so much I need to do before I'm anywhere near ready to sit on a beach. Operation get beach ready is GO!
This year I'm all about bright gorgeous colours, the brighter the better. My nails are so important to me, if they look good, I feel good.
Rimmel London have very kindly sent me their New Super Gel Beach Ready Collection and oh wow. I am in LOVE! Over the years I have always bought my nail varnishes from Rimmel London but as I've started to have Shellac for a while I'd forgotten all about painting my own nails.
Rimmel's nail varnishes are also so smooth and easy to apply and this collection is even better! This Super Gel collection is beautiful, just look at all of the vibrant shades!
The TWO simple steps for applying the shades from this collection are:
Apply 1-2 coats of Super Gel
One it's dry, apply the Clear Gel Top Coat
AND you're good to go!
It's so so simple and the Clear Top Coat gives your mani the perfect finish. For that lasting Gel shine!
I thought that I would apply each shade on each of my nails to get a better sense of this collection and so that I can tell you my personal thoughts towards them all individually!
The first shade: Sun Fun Daze 026 (to the right) is this gorgeous bright pink. Firstly, this is only one coat of the Super Gel and it is such a gorgeous creamy coverage that I don't need to apply anymore layers! Its such a flattering colour!
Can I just say here - these really are absolutely amazing. The quality and finish of each shade is brilliant and they dry within two minutes! I'm so so impressed. For all of these applications it took no time at all! The maxi brush provides the perfect amount of control and precision and it dries almost instantly!
The second shade: (to the right) is Coral Queen 035 - the orange shade. I've personally, never worn an orange shade on my nails before and this is the colour I was most apprehensive about. I love it! It's such a gorgeous soft colour that I feel that I could actually wear this! It's a first for me, but I'm about to give Coral Queen a try!
Next up is the gorgeous vibrant red in shade: Flamenco Beach 045. I often find with red nail varnishes they can make nails look a little patchy if enough coats aren't applied. Well, this incredible coverage with Flamenco Beach has come from one, YES ONE, coat! This was by far one of my favourite shades to apply, it is so glossy and the shine is incredible from the instant I applied it!
The penultimate shade is the bright blue in shade: Dive Right In 053. I have always loved electric blue shades on my nails, I always used to go into school with the brightest blue - only to be told to take it off straight away obvs! This colour is such a holiday colour. Most of my bikinis are this shade of blue, so guess who's going to have matching nails to their swimsuit this summers! Yours, truly.
The final shade, and yes I left the best till last, is the absolutely incredible Purple Splash 082. Now, if anyone knows me, they know I am absolutely obssessed with this shade of colour. I have surrounded myself in this colour. My phone case, jumpers, trainers, lip products - you name it and I'll take it!
Obviously for this shade I had to apply it to my hands for the full picture! I love it, it's everything I love at the moment and now I can apply it to my nails and match even more!
Shall we just take a moment to appreciate this insane colour?! When I applied this I was wearing a white crop jumper that I recently got from Primark and I've never felt happier.
I am such a soft, nude and neutral girl at heart and so this shade for me just does it all. I am so sure that this shade is sticking around for a while and I just want to show it off to the world!
These shades look so professional - coming from a Shellac girl! I am so impressed with them and the shine on my mani is immaculate! I can't believe the finish of these gel nails without the UV lamp and they take minutes to apply and dry!
Thank you very much Rimmel London for gifting these to me, they are beautiful!
