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. This 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. This 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! This 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:Isn’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?
