Mr. Darcy, Disco Diva

Hi!

Alas, not a post about Colin Firth performing to the soundtrack of Saturday Night Fever.

I picked up a couple of Rimmel polishes towards the end of last year, including my first one from their Salon Pro range.

Oh, Mr Darcy! is a creamy beige colour reminiscent of Chanel Frenzy that promises a gel-like finish (which it delivers). It's a great staple nail colour, and I'd definitely recommend it for anyone who likes neutrals or clean-looking nails. It's very work appropriate and can be jazzed up really easily with a topcoat. It's a very, very flattering colour.


When I saw "Disco Diva", one of the Glitter Bomb colours, I knew it would be the perfect match for Mr. Darcy.


Disco Diva is jam-packed with glitters of varying sizes, mainly in rose gold/pink tones. There's also some holographic microglitter in there that adds a hell of a lot of sparkle. It's very similar to GOSH Girls on Film.


I used it on the tips of my nails after two coats of Oh, Mr. Darcy!.





I love the combination of colours, it's a great way to ease from Winter glitters into brighter shades for Spring.

Rimmel Glitter Bomb polishes cost €5.49 each. Salon Pro polishes cost €6.49 each or you can get 2 for €10 in Boots at the moment.

    1. Oh dear god here's your sister, the amount of polish I have bought solely for it's name is ridiculous! Any hint of a pop culture reference at all and I'm sold! This is a gorgeous colour, though. I did pick it up before seeing the name, which is unusual! x

    1. Ahh I used to do that all the time too, I would dab a bit of glitter on and think there wasn't enough! It's a lovely polish, I can't vouch for the claims of 10 days because I took it off after 3, but it has a lovely gel-like finish and the brush is great x

  4. They look great together! And I kinda like the idea of Colin Firth performing to the soundtrack of Saturday Night Fever, someone should make that happen. :)
