I first spotted Rimmel Midnight Blue on the nails of an assistant in my opticians. I loved it and asked her what it was. I pride myself that I pretty much know all the mainstream brands you get in the UK, and I knew I hadn’t seen this one before. So I trotted off to Superdrug in search of it. But I couldn’t find it.
Not knowing if she was mistaken about its name, or if my Superdrug just didn’t have it in stock, I searched for it online when I got home. I quickly discovered that it’s an old (or a US) polish and could only find it for sale on eBay. I found it on sale for just a couple of pounds and ordered it at about 4 pm. It arrived the next day!
Rimmels usually chip very quickly on me, so I don’t buy them any more, but I am a sucker for a navy, and this one has a fine, lighter blue shimmer to it, so it’s different from others in my collection. You can’t really see the shimmer except for close up, or in the sunshine, but it gives the polish a near metallic quality and great shine.
