Beauty Bloggers Brawl 2017 – Day 5 Summer Nail Varnish

Today I continue with the Beauty Bloggers Brawl 2017 challenge. As mentioned in my introduction post (Introduction). The Beauty Bloggers Brawl is a daily blog post undertaken by a group of beauty bloggers who will be challenging each other to a daily top trump game reviewing beauty products. We have been given specific categories but can choose our own brand and product to review. We will rate the product, packaging and price out of 100 then create a top trump card to represent our product.

Day 5’s review is about summer nail varnish.

60 Second Super Shine Nail Varnish by Rimmel
£2.99 from

For my summer nail varnish product I chose Rimmel’s 60 Second Super Shine Nail Varnish in the colour 415 Instyle Coral. I felt this was the perfect colour for Summer. I am also a big fan of Rimmel Nail Polishes.


  • 3 in 1 technology for up to 10 days wear
  • High impact colour for ultra-shiny finish
  • One stroke, precise application

My Verdict:



Product – 20/100
I was so disappointed with this nail varnish. I have always used this range of nail varnishes and loved them but this one was terrible. It applied patchy on the first application so I applied a second coat and it layered heavily and was still patchy. The colour was a bit too bright for me. It would look nice on darker skin though. I can’t comment about the durability of this nail polish as I actually took it off the day after as it looked so awful. There are 50 shades available in this range though and I know the other colours are good so it is worth trying them.

Packaging – 40/100
This is a standard nail varnish bottle with a brush attached to the lid. I feel it is good as you can clearly see the colour, however the colour did not truly represent the colour on the nails. It also applied clumpy with the brush and did not apply evenly on the nail. So it did not live up to the claims.

Price – 50/100
I think this would be a great price for a drugstore nail polish if the product had not bee so terrible! A really disappointing product.

This was my least favourite product from the whole Beauty Bloggers Brawl Challenge.
