Orange nail polish just makes me think "summer!"

This is Rimmel Lasting Finish Nail Polish in 050 Tangerine Queen – I can’t find any of my orange polishes so wanted a new one, not too neon or bright but not dull or frosted either. This is perfect, the exact colour I wanted. A nice juicy, glossy orange.
Please excuse the slight crapplication on the middle two fingers, I swatched this whilst writing an essay, in a dimly lit room, with sleep deprivation and without my swanky D&G specs on. I should really wear them more, they make me look smarter (oh, and I can see of course).

I actually don’t own any other Rimmel polishes and I was pretty impressed with this one (especially for the price). Application was easy, the formulation is a little thick, dry time was ok though this it two coats and you can still sort of see VNL . I love the finish too, it’s really shiny and plasticised. I’ve got Leighton Denny All for One Base and Top Coat on with it.

It lasted 2 days without chipping or tipwear, quite a feat since my nails are getting long.

This gets a thumbs (with orange painted nails, of course) up from me for summer. Oh yes, Tangerine Queen, you shall travel in my suitcase all the way to Florida next week!
