Rimmel Marine Blue Bottle

Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro Marine Blue

Marine Blue is from the new(ish) Lasting Finish Pro Nail Enamel line from Rimmel. Rimmel claims this polish can last up to 10 days with some fancy time released shine formula and UV protection. The polish ran about $4. For a Rimmel polish that seemed kind of steep, but I decided to give it a try anyway.

In the bottle this color has a bit of a duo chrome effect, but that doesn’t translate to the nail (even in the sun). On the nail, Marine Blue is a bluish green with not really microglitter, more of a frost. Very shimmery! I really love this color.

Application was great. This Rimmel line has a wide brush (similar to Sally Hansom Complete Salon Manicure or Insta-Dri brushes). The formula is perfect. I probably could have gotten away with one coat, but something just seemed wrong about not doing two.

As for Rimmel’s claim that this polish can last 10 days, I’m skeptical. That being said, I get bored way too fast to even attempt to keep the same manicure of 10 days. I’m currently on day 3 of this manicure with not a single chip (quite an amazing feat).
