Rimmel "Hot Shot"

I was thinking recently and realised I haven't worn a proper pink nail polish for a long time, so I'm really happy to be rectifying that today. "Hot Shot" is from Rimmel's "I <3 Lasting Finish" range, and is a vibrant hot pink creme. It has a really nice formula - densely pigmented and easy to apply, thanks in no small part to the brush Rimmel uses in this range - it's similar to OPI's Pro-Wide brush but not quite as big. I find it really easy to use.

Pictures show two coats plus base & top coat.




Do you like pink nails? I have mixed feelings about them generally. There are some shades of pink which I don't really like, but thankfully this is not one of them - it's actually one of my favourites.

Thanks for reading, and come back again soon :) x

  1. Lovely colour, I have also recently realised I haven't worn any of my brightest and boldest pinks lately so have decided to put one on next week :) I do like pinks but funnily enough its never my obvious choice for a mani, lately I seem to be drawn to greens, blues, neutrals and glitters!!

    Great work with the blog, been following from your posts on the NI fb page, love checking in to see what you will have on next x

    1. Isn't it funny that we seem to go through phases when it comes to our polish choices? I try not to wear too many similar colours back to back but sometimes I'm just drawn to the same sort of shade constantly!

      Thank you very much, I'm really pleased you're enjoying reading my blog - I'm certainly enjoying writing it :) xx

    Almost Delightful

    2. I love Misty Jade the best even though it's really thin. Once you've applied 3 coats it's beautiful and lasts so well. I think the discontinued it though :( x

    3. I was trawling through all the pics on Rimmels timeline last night and saw an old picture of Misty Jade that you had posted! It looks like such a pretty colour, I don't think I've ever seen it being sold anywhere though :( xx

    4. I did actually a few months ago find one in a pound shop! So keep a look out in there xx

    5. Wish there was a Pound Shop near here!! Living in the middle of nowhere has severe drawbacks when it comes to polish acquisition!! We do have a recently opened 99p Store but they only ever have really old Revlon or Max Factor shades, no Rimmel :( xx

    6. I know what you mean, I live in the peak district in the middle of nowhere so I don't get to go often. Thank God for Internet shopping :D xx

    7. Amen to that!! Always wanted to visit the Peak District! I'm smack-damn in bewteen Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor, despite the lack of polish buying opportunities, I do love it here :) xx
