Rimmel London Lasting Finish Pro Lava Red

well, as you can see, i didn't get the China Glaze Glitz - Bitz 'N Pieces post quite finished. i have all the pictures edited, but it's pretty late here... so, i decided to go ahead and post this one so i don't feel like i'm rushing through that big post! the glitters are all gorgeous, there isn't a dud in the collection :)

today's post will actually be on Rimmel London Lasting Finish Pro Lava Red, a deep burgundy polish with red shimmer. this polish is so dark that it looks dark brown where the light isn't hitting it... i absolutely adore colors like this! the formula is good, it only took two coats for full opacity... but it wanted to thin out really badly at the nail tips. to combat this, between coats one and two i added a coat just to the very tips of the nails... and that solved the problem beautifully! this dries pretty glossy on its own which is lovely, but i added topcoat to aid the drying process.

two coats Lava Red, one coat Seche Vite.

i have yet to find a polish from the Rimmel London Lasting Finish Pro line that i haven't liked... can't go wrong with these babies.

here's hoping i get it together for the CG post tomorrow! Ria :)


  1. That is very very pretty. I wonder if this is easy to find.... I will have to see O.O Thanks Ria!

    1. i found it last year at Kmart in the regular Rimmel section! :D

  2. Really like this! I wore a lot of these types of colors this past Fall. I was obsessed!
