Review: Rimmel LycraPro Nail Varnish

Recently, I decided to give Rimmel London's LycraPro nail polish a road test. It purports to last for up to 10 days, with a long-wearing and chip resistant formula.

Did it last 10 days? No. The picture below, which shows a fair few chips, was taken two days after application. I applied two coats, over a base coat, and added a thin layer of topcoat.

However, while this polish doesn't impress on longevity, it does impress on application. A maxi brush is included for "mistake-free application", and indeed, the width of the brush does make applying the polish very easy - you can paint most of the nail in one quick stroke. Plus, this colour, which is #307, Grape Sorbet, is a very pretty slightly metallic rose.

So, even though this product doesn't live up to it's long wearing claims, it still has its good points. If you're interested in trying it out for yourself, you can get it from all Rimmel stockists; I got mine from Boots, where it's £4.49 for 12ml.
