So the long awaited Kate Moss for Rimmel - Salon Pro Nail Polishes is over as they are now on the shelves along with the regular and also newly launched Rimmel Salon Pro Nail Polish and I for one can vouch that they were worth the wait!
There is ten new shades by Kate Moss and twenty for the regular Pro line so collectively the collection is pretty darn huge. Anyway the shades by Kate Moss are inspired by music and it's various genres and word has it that her daughter helped when it came to shade selection...how cute! Hip Hop (a bright coral red) is predicted to be the biggest seller but truth be told it didn't really appeal to me so I went for a beautiful light orange shade - Reggae Splash.
Kate Moss for Rimmel Salon Pro Nail Polish in Reggae Splash is a light and heavily yellow based orange that is perhaps best described as being a true apricot shade rather than orange.
I own nor have I ever had anything at all like this shade and that is what drew me in.
Sadly as it is a lighter shade it does require around 3 coats to become fully opaque but as it dries in no time and isn't prone to streaking application is a breeze. Speaking of application the new Rimmel Pro Salon polishes each feature a new brush which is wide and flat so it fans around the nail for quick and precise application.
All of the Pro Nail polishes by Rimmel have a gel like formulation which not only dries quickly but to a glossy finish. Rimmel claim that each application without a topcoat should wear for up to ten days, I can't vouch for that as I chop and change on a daily basis but it does sound promising and for £4.49 a pop they are brilliant quality. I urge you to check the shades out in store, surprisingly the non Kate Moss collective has the best shades - it's all I can do not to buy one of each colour!
