Rimmel - Mintilicious


     I've got another quick post for you today featuring Mintilicious by Rimmel. It's a quick post because there really isn't a whole lot to say, and I'm not feeling like my usual quirky self at the moment. I'm trying and failing to fight off a migraine and sitting at my computer isn't helping one bit. So to spare my poor head,  let's jump right in.

Mintilicious-Rimmel-mint-green-creme-nail-polish
     
     Rimmel Mintilicious is a green leaning teal creme released in the summer of 2013. The formula on this one was pretty good. A little uneven on the first coat but the polish flowed off the brush smoothly with nice control. While not completely dry in 60 seconds this polish does dry rather quick. I found that if I tried to go back over my nail before dipping the brush back into the bottle the polish would streak and drag. But, this polish dries rather quickly which means less time spent waiting to apply that second coat, and you can be out the door faster. See what I did there, quick drying has it's pluses and minuses. Shown here is 2 coats plus top coat.


     I like the color, its fun and bright, perfect for the season. But it's not really one that I see myself wearing on it's own often. I did use it as a base for some fun nail art, that I'm not quite ready to reveal yet. hehehe.  I did leak a teaser photo on Instagram the other day. Do you want to see it? Well of course you do right! 


     Ohhh I wonder what it could be! I see some sparkle in there. Maybe some marbling or is that needle drag? You'll have to wait to find out. 

     Rimmel Mintilicious can still be found on shelves at Wal-mart if you're looking to add it to your collection. Don't forget to stop back again when my nail art is revealed. Thanks to stopping by and Happy Polishing!

  2. Haha Thank you! I feel like I put a lot of pressure on the nail art to be awesome, which I think it kind of is. But the nail art that I love typically gets less love from readers than the art I feel is only ok. Funny how that works. =)

  24. Thank you. The migraine keeps coming and going. Just when I think it's gone Bam it hits me again. It made the last 2 hrs of work today a struggle to get through. Especially since the students were giving a choir concert. With special needs kids even on a good day it's not always music to your ears, but they sure enjoy preforming.

  26. Needle drag is a technique where you put a few drops of polish on your nail and then "drag a needle through it" to create a marbles effect. A lot of people will use a nail art brush instead of a needle though. I have not been successful in my previous attempts at this, usually I gauge my base color and make a big mess. But I've only tried it using a toothpick.
