Considering that it is Spring, even I wanted to incorporate some colour in my look. And by colour I mean navy and emerald, not pink and orange.
I did not buy a new nail polish in ages, somehow I couldn’t find the shade that would stand out to me. But when I saw Rimmel’s Lycra Salon Pro Nail Polish, 411 Navy Seal, I knew that I had to get it. It is such a gorgeous muted dusty navy blue. I love my blue nail polishes and somehow didn’t have such shade in my collection, so I am very happy to have it now.
Have been wearing it on my nails for the last week, so expect the nails of the day soon.
It goes perfectly

They all come in a nice black tube packaging, and a lid is actually matching the shade of the pencil, which is very handy. I also like the fact that you don’t need to sharpen these, you just need to twist to get more product out.
As you can see from the photo, the liner are relatively slim, so you can get a precise line, if you wish.
I personally really loved the formula, the pencils are soft and smooth, they don’t drag the skin and glide on easily. The lasting power is also pretty impressive, but I don’t have oily lids, and the the products usually do stay on me rather well in general.

Regular readers know my big love for Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Raven Glaze, a glossy ultra black eye liner. Yes, it is not matte or shiny, it is like a black gloss!
