Adding shine with Rimmel’s top coat

If you are a regular reader of my blog you would probably know by now that I love Rimmel’s polishes, this time my review is about the Rimmel Finishing Touch Ultra Shine Top Coat. This top coat is one of the items I purchased for the free Union Jack handbag from Clicks when they had their Beauty Fair.

Why do you need a top coat.
Well a top coat has many advantages, it helps to dry your newly painted manicure, it gives a nice shine (mat top coats are available if you don’t want shine) if you did nail art it helps to lock in that design, it hides uneven brush strokes, gives a smooth feel to glitter polishes, it lengthens the wear time of your polish and it hardens your nails.

How to apply a top coat.
Shortly after you painted your nails or did a nail art design (it has to dry a little first, so that it isn’t too sticky) paint a layer of top coat over your nails starting at the base towards the tips, also apply some on your tips and under your nail for extra strength. Always apply your top coat first before cleaning up any polish that may have gotten on your skin, it helps prevent any damage to your freshly painted nails.

Rimmel Finishing Touch Ultra Shine Top Coat.
This top coat comes in a very sturdy bottle, it’s see through with a white screw on cap, and the best of all, it has a maxi brush for easy application. It paints on really smooth, has a short drying period and leaves your nails with a gorgeous shine while lengthening the wear time of your polish and hardening your nails.

I highly recommend this top coat!
