I'm nearly over the Spring Plague and felt good enough last night for a full manicure with Rimmel Salon Pro Hip Hop.
I swatched this one last year but had yet to wear it as a manicure. Then yesterday I saw Mars from Rimmel on Lucy's Stash and had to dig Hip Hop out and wear it. I don't have Mars but after seeing it on Lucie's blog, I may have to hunt it down.
Hip Hop is not the same color of red as Mars but still just as striking. Unfortunately, my top coat left some pretty hefty bubbles. Even with a second layer of top coat, you can see some bubbles there on my ring finger. Oh, well. The color is beautiful, the finish is shiny, a few bubbles aren't going to get in the way of the gorgeousness of this polish.
Application was so easy, I had very little clean up to do. This does have that flat, wide brush but it is neatly trimmed and really helped the polish go on neat and smooth. A dream to work with.
I'm going to enjoy wearing this red.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned.
