My new favorite nail polish

L to R: Funtime Fuchsia, Caramel Cupcake, Instyle Coral

This is just a quick post to sing the praises of my new favorite nail polish: Rimmel London 60 Seconds Nail Polish. This line's "Sweet Lavender" shade was one of Oprah's 2014 Spring Makeup Awards winners. :) Very nice!

My go-to polish lately has been Caramel Cupcake, which has been a godsend for doing a quick "one and done" manicure. I just apply one coat, and I'm out the door in a minute! The polish truly does dry in 60 seconds, and this shade is a modern nude that I imagine would work with all skin tones.

This photo has no filter, so it shows the true color payoff you get. I did polish on two coats and a clear topcoat, but you can get away with one coat if you're in a hurry. 

The only drawback to these types of polishes is that they tend to chip more quickly. That's the price that you pay for a speedy manicure, I guess.

--Super-fast drying time
--The line offers so many shades, there's a color for everyone
--Crazy-cheap! I get mine for $1.50 at Walmart, and sometimes you can find a $1-off coupon in the newspaper

--They chip quickly
--The bottles are small
--One coat is enough, but it looks infinitely better with two coats (I have that problem with a lot of polishes, though)
