Rimmel~Midnight Blue & Purple Rain

Today I have 2 of the new Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro, Midnight Blue & Purple Rain.  I picked these up at Walgreens for $3.99.  The color is beautiful in these two.

Midnight Blue is a blue black base with blue shimmer-stunning!

Purple Rain is a little deceiving.  To me, it;'s not purple at all.  It's more of a dark vampy burgundy color.  Purple Rain is a gorgeous, dark and vampy creme, just like I like 'em!

I do have a few issues with this polish.  1.  The brush-why is the trend to flatten the brush?  The brush was flat and really big.  2.  The formula was a little on the thick side.  3.  Drying time on Purple Rain sucked.  I dented and smudged nearly every nail.  I finally just gave up and took it off.  I will say, I was really cold and my hands were like ice.  So, that may have had something to do with it.  But I was very frustrated after it taking longer that usual to dry and the cumbersome brush.

I hate when the brush is flat and too big and I double hate it when the formula is thick!
Other than that, gorgeous mani!

The colors are really beautiful, I had a hard time deciding which ones to get. The brush is nearly as wide as the neck of the bottle-TOO wide. I am barely used to OPI's new brush style.

Yeah, that brush is too much like the Sally Hansen Insta Dri for me! I don't like it but at least I can semi-use it now. I like both of these, very pretty!

I just recently saw that the grocery store very close to my has Rimmel but I thought that the nail polishes were too expensive here. :(

Midnight Blue looks gorgeous though!

Wow, these are gorgeous colours. Too bad to hear about the brush and drying time problems.
