rimmel london lasting finish nail polish - 405 loafer love for you!
buy online: boots (couldn't find it on superdrug online but I'm sure you can get it in store)
A couple of weeks ago when I was in Cardiff, my good friend/shopping partner in crime Cle and I hit St David's Dewi Sant, the huge shopping centre near Cardiff Central Station. I was having one of those nail polish urges (I'm sure you understand what I mean) and was craving for an injection of colour into my nail wardrobe. Having collected points on my Boots card for a year and a half or so, I finally had enough to buy my first Real Techniques brush and had a couple of quid to spare. Being me I could not simply just leave this £2 lonely and by itself, so trawled over to the Rimmel stand to find a bargain. Loafer love for you! really stood out to me as a summery, bright cobalt blue shade. It's on offer for £1.99 at the moment at £1 so was a great deal to snap up, especially when I technically didn't even pay for it.
Application of this was pretty standard, the brush is one of my favourites as it's long but not too wide, so suits my small fingernails. Drying time wasn't too shabby and it dried to a neat and glossy finish like many others in the Lasting Finish range. A notable observation I think is definitely worth mentioning is how I did experience some tip wear after two days, something I'm not really used to but in hindsight has happened to me quite frequently as of late. I can't put my finger on whether it is me or the nail polish ("It's not you, it's me"). However, for £1.99 I have no huge negatives to point out. The price is great, the name is adorable and the colour is gorgeous, fitting well into the blue spectrum of my nail polish collection. At first I thought it would look a bit similar to another blue shade by Rimmel, blue eyed girl (reviewed here) but it is far more turquoise tinted than loafer love for you. Phew! I now have the excuse to keep and use both of them.
Are you as into this shade as I am?
