Swatch: Rimmel Shirley Temple

Hi everyone!

Today I have another older swatch to share with you that I did a while ago and just never got around to posting. This one comes from the Rimmel Cocktail Colour in a Flash collection. This collection consisted of 5 colours – orange, blue, red, green, and purple – all with a similar glass fleck finish. Today I have the orange to share with you. Painted Fingertips | Swatch: Rimmel Cocktail Colours - Shirley TempleThis is 3 coats of Rimmel Cocktail Colour Shirley Temple with top coat. It is a light but bright orange polish packed with golden glass fleck/shimmer. While this isn’t the first shade I would choose to go with my skin tone, I love the way the shimmer looks. Painted Fingertips | Swatch: Rimmel Cocktail Colours - Shirley TempleThis polish is a little sheer and does need 3 coats to reach opacity. I think this has been done to allow the shimmer to show better and in my opinion, it’s worth it. This polish almost seems to glow! Painted Fingertips | Swatch: Rimmel Cocktail Colours - Shirley TempleThis polish also goes really well together with the others from the collection and I’ve used all 5 together in a gradient as a background for some nail art before.

I also decided to see how this would look with a matte top coat:Painted Fingertips | Swatch: Rimmel Cocktail Colours - Shirley TempleIsn’t it beautiful? The golden shimmer still creates a glow from within, even when it’s matte. I honestly can’t decide if I like it better matte or shiny. Which do you prefer?Painted Fingertips | Swatch: Rimmel Cocktail Colours - Shirley Temple

    I really like the matte version, even if I am no glassflecks fan!

    I’m not really a fan of glass fleck polishes, but I adore how this orange looks on you!

      I have so few glass fleck polishes that they’re still basically a fun novelty for me 🙂
