Product Review and NOTD - Rimmel Sky High Nail Varnish

Hi everyone!
I was naughty and bought a new nail varnish today, I really fancied a summery turquoise nail varnish. So we popped down to Morrisons and found just what I was looking for at the Rimmel stand.

Sky High is a gorgeous creamy turquoise/teal shade and it's part of Rimmel's 60 Seconds nail varnish range. It costs £2.99 and you get 8ml of product, so pretty cheap. :)

I was really happy with my purchase until I applied it, the first coat was soo sheer, the second was very streaky and uneven. By the time I applied the third coat it had started to even out a bit and was nice and opaque. Unfortunately the nail varnish went all blobby and uneven on my little finger. :(
I applied some Seche Vite top coat and the pictures above show the results.

Pros - Lovely colour, a nice creamy finish and very summery.
Cons - The application is awful!
Marks out of 10 - 6/10

I was so disappointed with the application of this nail varnish, especially seeing as I have some of the other shades of nail varnishes from the same range and they're lovely to apply and very opaque after one coat. I will use this nail varnish again, but only when I have some patience to put up with the formula :)

Thanks for reading,


  1. This is such a pretty color, too bad the application isn't great.

  2. gorgeous colour shame about application!x

  3. Maybe trying painting a layer of clear nail varnish first, I'm absolutely awful at painting my nails and I find this gives me a smoother base :).
    The colour is beautiful though! x

    1. Good idea :) I did skip using a basecoat. I'll have to give it another go :D

  4. I agree, great colour but it's a shame you had trouble with it :(
