Get the London look! Or maybe it's more French...

AdvantagesVery long lasting colour which doesn't chip

DisadvantagesNone I have encountered

"...my favourites has to be Rimmel Lycra Wear Nail Polish. I never used to be a Rimmel fan and found the London brand to be unappealing, but in my quest to find a good chip-resistant polish this was recommended to me by a friend. She had bought it because of the price - it costs £3.99 for 12ml - and had been suprised by its durability and hard-wearing properties. I went to Boots where the full Lycra Wear range was on display. After battling my way ..." Read review

Lycra on fingers works, just not on chubby thighs!

AdvantagesGreat range of colours, widely available, cheap, lasts well.

DisadvantagesNone really, maybe they should do some brighter and bolder colours?

"...to things. A while back Rimmel had an offer going where you could enter a competition to win one of three colours of nail varnish from the new range they have brought out. I entered and requested a deep red the other two were a peach and a pale pink neither of which are the kind of colours I tend to wear. At the beginning of last week I had a little jiffy bag come through the post and I opened it not knowing what it was going to contain as I had ..." Read review

"...varnishes from different brands, but Rimmel Nail polish is my favourite brand and one of the cheapest i have purchased. What I've found with rimmel nail polish is that the durability is amazing, when you apply it it says on for days without been chipped, and continues to stay shiny and fresh looking for days. The Application is as follows... It's Very easy to do I recommend that you that you apply the varnish by painting a strip in the ..." Read review

60 Seconds to pure gorgeous-ness Diamond review

AdvantagesColour, easy to apply, dries in the time it's supposed to, lasts well

DisadvantagesNone at all

"...but this is the only Rimmel product I own as I've always considered Rimmel as a bit of a 15 year old schoolgirls brand but this nail polish has changed my mind. Completely. Anyway, when I apply my nail polish it always irritates me that I have to sit around flapping my hands in the air while I'm waiting for it to dry. I can paint the nails on both of my hands in around three minutes so it bugs the hell out of me that I've got to wait longer than ..." Read review

Wear it maxx for 1 day!

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesChips after one day

"...shades available 'Velvet Rose' from Rimmel came closest to what I wanted. === The packaging === The bottle that you can see on the third product photo is small, round and has a handle of about the same size with a normal, thin brush. The black handle (annoyingly and misleadingly) says 'Up to 10 days'. The number 10 is exaggerated while the 'days' are in smallprint. (Now I see why.) === Application === This brush is quite small and is the ..." Read review

You give me fever... Fever! Review with images

Advantageseasy to apply, even, fantastic colours

Disadvantageschipped right on the second day

"...Coty Inc. The House of Rimmel was founded by Eugene Rimmel in 1834. The Rimmel product range is very wide, if you want to look at their products please visit www.rimmellondon.com One of the nail varnishes I have chosen was Lycra Pro in Hot Gossip colour. The transparent bottle contains 12 ml nail varnish. The manufacturer says that it has a maxi brush for mistake-free application. The Rimmel nail varnishes are available in 22 colours. The one I have ..." Read review

Lasting FInish? Maybe Not!

AdvantagesMetallic Finish

DisadvantagesChips and peels easily.

"...application and control. ☼☼☼ What does Rimmel say? ☼☼☼ ~ hardwearing ~ chip resistant ~ long lasting colour §§§ My Experience §§§ My nails aren’t in a great state of affairs but given that all but my little finger nails have grown over recent weeks and following a brief trip to the sunnier climes of Italy, I thought I would ‘encourage’ myself to continue with the nail growth regime, hence the purchase ..."

Blue Nail Purple Nail Blue Nail Purple Nail

Advantagespretty pretty pretty... oh and it's cheap!

DisadvantagesDoes not dry in 60 seconds

"...smaller than a standard size Rimmel bottle (12ml) and quite a bit smaller than other brands that are sometimes a bit bigger. There's the boring bit over. Now I can tell you about my lovely nails. Rimmel London (whose nail varnish is incidentally made in Spain!) is not a brand that I rate too highly in the cosmetics stakes. The make up is often a bit too cheap and "schoolgirly" although I know that they are trying to update their image! Basically ..." Read review

Excellent nail varnish at a good price

AdvantagesStrong colour, lasts ages, only needs 1 coat

Disadvantagesnone

"...really good quality. I chose Rimmel because I already buy some of my makeup from there and there was a 3 for 2 offer on in Boots on the Rimmel counter. I’d heard that the Lycra wear range is supposed to be really good and as well as lasting ages they prevent nails from breaking while it is on. It costs £4.50 for the bottle when you buy it from Boots which I think is a reasonable price. '''Packaging…''' The bottle is quite straightforward, ..." Read review

Lasts 60 seconds without chipping more like Review with images

AdvantagesIt does dry in 60 seconds

DisadvantagesChips very easily

"I got my 60 seconds extreme nail varnish as part of a gift set (with an eye shadow and a wristband). I received this product for Christmas. About the Nail Polish --------------------- I received an 8ml bottle, in colour 875 Zeitgeist. On the back of the Nail Polish it claims to give 'perfect coverage in one coat. Dries in 60 seconds. Flammable.' Did it only need one coat? -------------------------- Well I applied one coat and let it ..." Read review

My most favourite type of lycra!

AdvantagesEasy to apply, gives a lovely finish and the range has some lovely colours to choose from

DisadvantagesNone I can think of

"...silver writing that it is Rimmel 'London' Lycra Wear and that it lasts up to 5 days and is super durable polish and the colour is stated (in my case the colour is Grape Sorbet, 307). On the back of the bottle (now all in small white writing) I'm told it is chip resistant and flammable, some information is given in foreign languages, contact details for Rimmel are listed, I'm told it is made in Spain and finally the size is stated. nice enough little ..."

Dzien dobry, my little polish chameleon.

AdvantagesLovely colours, dries quickly, minimal chipping.

DisadvantagesI have yet to find any.

"...there it was – a Rimmel display (next to another cosmetics stand I’ve instantly forgotten). It was actually the lipstick I stopped to look at; there was a small promotional poster about their latest line, water-cooler-diamond-shiner-glitter-something-or-other, but I didn’t like any of the shades. Then I noticed this little bottle shimmering away interestingly among the other perfectly nice, yet bog-standard colours of nail ..." Read review

AdvantagesPerfect finish

DisadvantagesDifficult to remove

"...varnishes were Rimmels newer range, Rimmel Wear Maxx Nail Polish. The shades included in my little package were luckily shades I would wear; 'Pure Sin', 'Grape Sorbet' and 'Vintage'. I don't know about anyone else, but when I get new products, I tend to try them out straight away, and as I wasn't going out anywhere for the rest of the day, that is precisely what I did - different colours on each nail!! ******The Product****** This nail ..."

Professional looking nails.

AdvantagesLong Lasting, Bigger brush for precise application, Great range of colours

DisadvantagesNot all colours avaliable in all stores.

"...had to offer. I know Rimmel is quite a good, well known brand and their Lycra Pro Nail varnish was on offer for 2 for £7.00. I thought I could get her a nice coloured varnish and thought I would have the other one, seeing as I don’t have hardly any coloured nails varnishes apart from very light, sheer pink colours. ***THE NAIL VARNISH*** The Lycra pro nail varnish comes in the standard sized bottle as expected from a nail varnish, but the brush ..."

Professional finish with minimal time and effort

AdvantagesEasy to apply, great finish, lasts a long time

DisadvantagesNone

"...the bottle it has the Rimmel London in silver lettering, with Lycra Pro Professional Finish in white lettering and it claims the nail varnish lasts up to 10 days. On the back of the bottle it says it is a long lasting, chip resistant colour. It is very simple to apply due to the shape of the brush, it is a 'maxi brush', which is said to provide mistake free application. I would actually agree with this, the brush is flatter so you only need approximately ..." Read review
