Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Color: Polished Thumbs Up?

I cannot be the only one...who is inspired by the colors associated with the holidays; rich oranges, sparkling reds, and many a hue of green. In an attempt to show a little of that cheer, I decided to use my finger nails to express my love of the holiday color palette.  I am not talking about creating small versions of the infamous Christmas sweater on my nails, no small wreaths or hanging jingle bells here, but simple, tasteful colors and this is where my latest nail polish purchase comes into the equation.

I was browsing the toothpaste aisle at the local Wal-Mart (definitely picking up a tube of Crest 3-D white, the best...read about it here) and low and behold the end of the exciting dental health aisle shot me right out to the brightly back lit cosmetic aisle. Feeling drawn into the the shining light and colors like a moth to a flame, I browsed my way to the Rimmel section and decided my finger nails could use a little pick me up.  All the Rimmel nail polishes are fairly priced (starting at a dollar and half up to about three dollars), so the choice I made was purely based on color alone.  The Rimmel 60 Seconds polish in Sage is where my eye gravitated to, I know you are probably thinking, "green?" but it is a demure green heavy on the grey (literally imagine the fresh sage you are going to use during your Thanksgiving cooking this week). I purchased my wares, including the Rimmel polish, and made my way home, excited to give the new polish a try.

I got all the evening chores put to bed, bath time with Sonny Boy, taking Barko the wonder dog for a walk, and finding the hidden t.v. remote for the Hubby, and set off to manicure up my nails.  The Rimmel 60 Second polish bottle boast it is a "one-coat" nail polish that dries in "60 seconds," those are tall orders to fill in my mind, but I am an adventurer so I shook the bottle, dipped the brush, and got to painting.  The polish did not cover enough for my taste in one coat and truthfully after 60 seconds it was a bit sticky to the touch, BUT the color is amazing, it is shiny, and has not chipped after three days of mom chores (you know dishes, zipping up zippers, scrubbing the tub, etc.).  Considering the toughness of the polish and the accuracy of the color from bottle to nails, I would definitely recommend the Rimmel 60 Second nail polish in any color, but especially in sage, why not try something a little different? I give the polish two beautifully painted thumbs up.
