Polished Review and Swatches - Rimmel London Salon Pro Cocktail Passion

Rimmel London Salon Pro in Cocktail Passion Polished Review and Swatches


Hello! I have another polished review here girls! This time I have the ever so famous Rimmel London with the Salon Pro collection they released last year which claims to have a gel-like finish and last upto 10 days without chipping. The color I have is called 'Cocktail Passion'. It's a yummilicious pinkish coral color and I absolutely love it <3. Keep reading for a polished review on this baby.

Don't you just love that crown? ^_^. On to the reviewing.

Polished Review

Packaging and applicator

A really cute round bottle filled with 12 ml of coral goodness. The shape of the cap provides an excellent grip during application. The brush is flat and a little rounded at the tip, which makes the applicaton fast and smooth. Definitely will give faster nail polish applicaton to females with wide nails (not me -.-).

The brush has alot of bristles, and maybe that's the reason why the swatches had some thin streaks on it. This is a downer point to the applicator. The streaks didn't show up on the photos though. But this point matters a lot to nail polish freaks.

Polish Points = 4.5/5

Consistency

Beautiful! A lovely formula that glided beautifully. No gloopy-ness upon application whatsoever and dried up within a minute.

Polish Points = 5/5

Color and Finish

It's like coral gel on my nails!! The color is a pinkish coral. It has a gel finish, which is somewhere between jelly and creme. The finish totally lives upto the claim. I used two coats for the swatches.


The polish is well pigmented. The first coat kind of looked pink and sheer. The second coat did the job.

Polish Points = 5/5

Wear

This is the part where all the polishes fail. This one does too. It claims to last for 10 days. Without a topcoat and a basecoat, stayed glossy for several days. But it is not chip resistant for 10 days. 4 days maybe. There was chipping of the polish from the tips after continous use in water on the first day. Needs a basecoat and top coat.

Polish Points = 4/5

Price

Their website mentions GBP 4.49, which is recommended retail price. In Pakistan it is around PKR 600. The price is based on the Salon Pro-ness of this polish. That's a great price for a 12 ml bottle with a such a smooth formula and finish. Totally worth the money.

Polish Points = 4.5/5

The Polish Scoreboard

Calculating total polish points..

I totally recommend Rimmel London Salon Pro Nail Color
The Polish Scoreboard
So there you have it girls. 4.6 on the scoreboard.

To sum it all up, a beautiful gel polish, which applies and dries up quick, a good wear and worth the money. There are 31 shades available in this collection, ranging from pretty purples, pinks and peaches to some blues, greens and browns. For Karachites, it's available at the leading stores with price around PKR 600. Some colors are also available online at Beautyarena.pk. If you like international shopping online, it's available at ASOS. They ship to Pakistan.

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by ^_^. Do comment your lovely opinions below.

Happy Polishing! Lots of love,
