Polish - Rimmel 60 Seconds Mirror Nail Polish in Zing
Nubs - Day 5

Today's polish was FREE, y'all.

I was scrounging around under my sister in law's bathroom sink, looking for nail polish remover, and came across a cosmetic bag full of old nail polish. I spied an old school Urban Decay and asked how much she'd take for it. She said I could have it all, as she didn't use any of it anymore. So, I greedily wrapped it all up and put it in my overnight bag so I wouldn't forget it. Today's polish is one of those long forgotten colors, that's been stashed away for a good 7 or 8 years now.

Over my Orly Bonder basecoat, I applied 2 thin coats of Zing and 1 coat of Seche Vite fast drying top coat.

The application of Zing is just fine. It's what you'd expect from a foil type finish. It goes on easily, covers very well, but shows every single brush stroke and defect. It's one I'll keep in my collection, at least until my nails have grown out. I haven't used a foil finish in years, so I'll be curious to see how it looks once they are longer.

It is a nice shade - a rosy pink mauve color.

But as you can clearly see here, every brushstroke shows.

In the end, it does have a great, foily shine.

This polish is no longer available from Rimmel, but they did relaunch their 60 Second polish in 2010, with all new colors.


  1. I just got some processional nail polish thinner if you need any for some of those old polishes!

  2. Thanks! I'll let you know, but they all seem ok so far.
