Rimmel London 60 Seconds Nail Polish by Rita Ora in "270 Sweet Retreat", "300 Glaston-berry" & "400 Tangerine Tent": Review and Swatches
Tons of music festivals happen during the summer months so for Summer 2015, Rimmel London has released a limited edition nail polish collaboration with singer Rita Ora. Inspired by the music festival spirit, the 60 Seconds Nail Polish by Rita Ora Collection ($3.99 CAD each) includes eight gorgeous party-ready shades, to see some swatches of a few shades, click.......

270 Sweet Retreat:
This is a chic baby pink. The formulation is pretty sheer and streaky, I had to use three coats to get a nice coverage. The 60 Seconds Nail Polish brushes are really, really wide, which makes application a bit of a pain. The drying time was definitely not 60 seconds; using three coats certainly stretches the drying time, but the formulation of this shade doesn't really feel like a fast-drying polish.
270 Sweet Retreat, three coats with no top or base coat.
300 Glaston-berry:
A gorgeous red with subtle coral tones, this shade is an almost one-coater! This reminds me a lot of "Coral of the Story" from Nicole by OPI, so pigmented, so rich, and oh-so-bright! The drying time for this one much better. I used two coats for the swatches below.
300 Glaston-berry, two coats with no top or base coat.
400 Tangerine Tent:
This is a juicy tangerine orange. The color a lot more pigmented than I thought, and the formulation is very smooth and rich. I used two coats for the swatches below.
400 Tangerine Tent, two coats with no top or base coat.
Overall:
Out of the three shades, the standout is definitely "Glaston-berry". The formulation is so pigmented and creamy! "Sweet Retreat" is disappointingly sheer and streaky but "Tangerine Tent" is a lovely juicy yet opaque orange.
