Rimmel Double Decker Red
Rimmel Double Decker Red doesn’t quite beat either of those for me. It’s a lovely colour and the application of the polish is great, but it took three coats to get this level of opacity, which still shows some visible nail line (VNL). Also, it chipped very slightly after just an hour of wear. So for those reasons, it doesn’t quite make the grade for me.
So, as I said, this is three coats, plus top coat. Initially, I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip (the top coat in the red bottle). But I got a small chip on one finger, so ended up redoing that finger, and later on I also added a coat of Seche Vite over the dry manicure.
I’ve wrapped the tips quite well on this, and I think that’s why the Seche Vite hasn’t shrunk the polish. Or perhaps it’s because it went on top of a dry manicure. I don’t know for sure, but I had largely given up on Seche Vite because of the shrinkage, and my experience today may just get me back to using it again.
