When I got my Press invite to the Launch of Rimmel’s Spring Summer 2013 nail polish collection featuring 22 shades, 9 of which were developed in collaboration with supermodel Kate Moss. I jumped at the chance to attend.
The event was held in the funkier than funky Tropical Popical on Dublin 2, South William Street. It was my second time attending as I was disappointed with my first visit it was interesting to see the change for this type of event. I was manicured by the lovely and very talented Alice.
Rimmel introduces its new and improved Lycra® nail polish collection: Salon Pro With Lycra®1 – the first of its kind to a give a gel salon manicure finish.
Talking about the design collaboration, Kate adds, “Creating my shades of Rimmel Salon Pro nail colour was such fun, the collection has a shade that works for all your looks. As with music, different colours suit different moods which is why I think the names work so well. At the moment I’m loving ‘Hip Hop’ – it’s a vibrant orangey-red that really stands out. ”
Rimmel Salon Pro With Lycra® is available from April 22nd priced at €6.45/£4.99.With Salon Pro you get a base coat, top coat and gel colour all in one easy application at a fraction of a salon prices! How? Salon Pro With Lycra® is enriched with clever Colour Sculpt gel encapsulated microscopic tube particles for an amazing plumped, glossy look. The formula containing ultra-flexible Lycra1 delivers perfectly shaped, extra shiny, fade-resistant, shock proof nail colour. What’s more, creating salon-style nails is virtually effortless thanks to Salon Pro’s smart double brush, which enables a super-quick and flawless application.
As the range is so vast, I wanted to use as many colours as possible in one manicure so I chose the dark grey shade, Punk Rock number 711, I’ve been looking for a good polish in this colour since my disappointment with OPI’s My Private Jet and then I had some animal print done with a pink and the teal green called Sea Green.
I was so delighted with the finish result. But even happier to report I only removed this manicure last night 13 days after application, that for me is the biggest wow with these polishes. Not a chip in sight, could have probably left them another while but the regrowth gap was starting to bother me!
Rimmel Salon Pro With Lycra® is available from April 22nd from usual outlets priced at €6.45. A really fantastic price for a salon quality product.
I can’t wait to try out the rest of the range…. Be prepared for many colourful NOTD posts soon!
