Rimmel: Sweet as Sugar

Rooting through my little beauty box recently, I came across a nail polish that I’d only used once a long time ago. Number 704 in Rimmel’s I Love Lasting Finish range is aptly called Sweet as Sugar. Sounds cute but the first — and only — time I tried this, it turned out to be a streaky nightmare. Whatever I was doing that day, it just would not go right. Once I had rubbed the damage off my nails, I’d pushed the little bottle to the back of my collection and promptly forgot about it.

When I found it again the other day; I fell in love again with the pretty delicate colour. Rather than totally dismiss it, I decided to give it another chance. The first coat turned out as awful as I suspected it would. I carefully applied a second coat and while it still wasn’t great; there was a slight improvement. Two more coats and I had what I wanted — a smooth opaque finish. I love how the colour is so pale and yet it really pops. It’s fun and fresh and particularly suits this time of year as we move from winter in to spring (yay for spring!)


hello smudges! I was applying the fourth coat when I should have been leaving for work so please excuse the untidiness 😉
