NOTD: Rimmel Violet Metal

This is a brand I have never blogged about as I have never tried it before.  I only have 2 shades in my collection.  Today, I am sharing Rimmel London Lasting Finish Pro in Violet Metal.  I came across this polish on clearance at my local CVS. It was 75% off. That's always good when trying a brand for the first time. 
Rimmel London Violet Metal is a gorgeous shimmery irridescent violet. It has a durchrome quality with blue, purple, magenta, and teal. I guess you should really call it a multi-chrome. You can see the duochrome quality from both the bottle and on the nail. These pictures where taken inside under an Ott-Light. Next time I must see the qualities under our Florida sunlight.

·Color Family: Red violet duochrome - Cool
·Finish: Irredescent
·Opacity: 2 coats for bottle color

·Bottle: 0.45 Fl Oz
·Brush:Wide brush. This was a negative point for me. The width of the brush is just slightly less than the bottle neck. Not like the OPI Pro-Wide brush.
·Price:Reg. $3.99.
·Availability:Ulta, CVS, Target, Walgreens and Walgreens are some of the major retailers that carry Rimmell.
·Application: Smooth. In these pictures, I am wearing BC, and 2 coats of NP

Remember, treat your nails as jewels, not tools. Grace and Peace.

Oh, this is one of my favorites, I just love this shade. I have several of the "new line" Rimmels, because I love the colors. I hate the new brush though - it's too much like that weird Sally Hansen brush that's in the Insta-Dris and the complete salon manicure bottles. The old brush was more like any typical polish brush, maybe for instance Sinful Colors. I tolerate this merely because I like the line of colors and the polish itself, haha! I LOVE your photos of this, you captured it so well.

75% off? That's awesome, especially when that goes for great colors like this one!
