Pompous is a dark purple polish with a very fine blue shimmer that claims one coat application and that it dries in less than 60 seconds. It's a little more purple than pics below show.
I loved the colour and the Xpress brush means that I can apply an entire nail in one stroke which I really really like, however on some nails one coat didn’t look enough and the first coat took more than 60 seconds to dry out (I tested this and dented a few nails, oops!), it wasn't really much quicker than a normal polish to be honest. As you can see on the pics, there is some streaking or not enough coverage on the nail with one coat. Another coat sorted this but I thought I'd show you it one coat as it's marketed as a one coat product.
For some weird reason though, I’d buy another one of these polishes again – they’re ok for doing toes, are reasonably priced if you’re in a bit of a rush (and can’t find your Seche Vite, like me!). Rimmel polishes are smaller than other brands though, which actually doesn't make them as reasonably priced as they appear...8ml is the standard Rimmel size as opposed to say, 15ml for a standard OPI polish...hmm!
