Rimmel and Miss Sporty in harmony



Rimmel Space Dust ~ Let me Fly
Fuchsia texture with blueish shimmer
&
Miss Sporty ~ 404
Fuchsia with shimmer

These two polishes are both bought in Slovakia on my latest holiday and it was my boyfriend who picked them for me. I knew that they’d go perfectly together, so here’s what I came up with for them!

Application was easy for both polishes and they both took two coats to achieve full opacity. Drying time was pretty fast between the coats. I painted pinkie, index and thumb with the Miss Sporty and the ring and the middle finger with the Rimmel. I didn’t apply a topcoat just yet.

Here’s what that step looked like:


I love the shimmers in both polishes!


I mean, doesn’t this look great?


I stamped on it. I found my motifs on Moyou London stamping plates Pro Collection XL-01 and Pro Collection XL-09, and I stamped with a denim look polish from Claire’s called Blue. (What an original name, hahaha!!) I applied a layer of topcoat – also on the texture and here’s my final mani:


The star came out of an all nail design, I just used one star from it.


There’s no need for modesty here: I just love it!

 
Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Fast
Durability: Good
Finish: Shimmer!
Overall impression: Both are great polishes, good value for money, beautiful colour!
Buy again: Yes

    1. My boyfriend totally supports my hobby and that makes me happy.
      Why does your husband hate your hobby? I'm intrigued!

  5. I really like how both polishes are the same shade of fuchsia... makes a nice simple accent nail look to just have texture and non-texture I think :) I need to find matching polishes for my textures

    I like the stamping you added to it too!

  6. Hehe what a nice combination! The Rimmel and MS go so well together! They look like sisters! I'd say twins but the Rimmel is textured! ;-)

    The Clarie's blue is so pretty as well :-)

      The blue seemed to be just perfect for the twins :)
