NOTD - Rimmel Cranberry Surprise

Hi lovelies!

My goodness, I can't believe it's been five days since my last post. I've so many things to share but geez, has it been busy. I was away for the weekend with some girlfriends on a girly road trip, it was really good fun but it hasn't left me much time to blog!

Anyway, I just wanted to share my road trip manicure with you. I used Rimmel Cranberry Surprise from the Rimmel gift with purchase (GWP) set which I blogged about here. I'd had my eye on it for a while as it looked like the perfect scarlet shade, so when the GWP popped up, I decided it was fate! It's from the 'fruities' collection, which means that the polish has a lovely scent that lingers well until the next day. It's rather a pleasant change from the usual nail polish scent.

I also just wanted to mention that the brush is pretty good and really helps with an even application. The formula of the polish is also great, I only needed 2 coats with my usual base/top coat. And lastly, it wears pretty well...I managed to get 4 days out of it without any chipping (despite spending a good 45 minutes soaking in a tub on Saturday morning) and the only reason I took it off was because I couldn't wait to try on a new polish I just got (more on that in another post soon to follow).

Anyway, here we go with photos in as many different light settings as I could scrounge up. I find that the colour looks different in each light setting, with how it looks in full sunlight being my absolute favourite.

There you have it, lovelies...what did you think of it? I think it's such a cheerful colour it made me feel happy every time I caught a glimpse of it. Have you tried the 'fruities' yet? If so, did you like the scent? I'm looking forward to trying the other four in the collection.

Much love,
MM.

  3. Chelsea, you should, it's really pretty and it smells SO good! Think of it this way, stock up on something you need from the Rimmel collection or get a gift for someone's birthday, and you can keep the GWP for youself! Win! :)

    Elunia, it is indeed! It's really hard to get colours like this.

    xxxMissVxxx, I *may* have accidentally purchased a colour twice without realising I already had it at home a couple of times...but think of it this way, at least you have a back up for when it gets all gluggy? :)
