Mid-Week Mani: Rimmel Be Red-y




Hi guys! Here's a quick Mid-Week Mani for your Hump Day! I'm really into reds and dark shades at the moment, and I recently found this bottle in my collection, so I thought I'd pop it on. And by 'pop it on' I mean struggle to open the child-proof cap of my nail polish remover for 10 minutes, finally succeed and remove my old polish, do a quick tidy up with my nail file then whack this on. In exciting news I found my Sally Hansen Diamond Shine Top Coat when I was forced to clean my desk last week. I'd been wondering where that had got to!

If I were to describe this shade I'd say it's closer to 'cheerful' red than 'sexy' red and it's somewhat orangey but changes tones depending on the light. The brick background photo is taken outdoors so you can see the difference, the rest of the photos are taken indoors. 

Anyway, here's two coats of Rimmel Be Red-y (apparently 'flip flop fashion' according to the bottle, lol) and one coat of Sally Hansen Diamond Shine Top Coat. Hope you enjoy!

  1. That is the most beautiful cherry-red! So bright and vibrant, I love it! Rommel polishes have generally behaved pretty well for me in the past too.

  4. Love the colour. I've got horrible fingernails so painting them is a bit like... what's that saying about lipstick and a pig? Or is it a donkey? Also my fingernail polish doesn't last long and chips easily and quickly. My toenails seem to last much better.

    1. Yeah toenail polish last longer in general cos we don't use our toes like we do our hands. Try a top coat, that make a mani last a bit longer!

  5. That's a gorgeous red and great job on your nails too! I'm really into red nail polish - love it! However, I am hopeless at applying it on myself so usually go get it done by the professionals now and then! One of my little self-care habits. Love a spa-pedicure too (with that delicious massage chair)! #TeamLovinLife
