With more than 800 fine textured bristles, the brush is designed to adapt to any nail shape and require less strokes to apply, while delivering a super smooth finish and truly streak-free results.

FOR BEST RESULT
Even though it’s a lasting finish, I would still always, always suggest putting a top coat! I would never skip the top coat because it makes the polish last THAT much longer! So always put on a top coat!

WHY I LOVE THIS PRODUCT
I had purchased this colour right after hearing that this is the dupe for Sephora by OPI Metro Chic. I had read on many, many blogs that this colour is practical the same as the OPI one and the fact that it’s half the price of the OPI one, I had to hunt it down in a Wal-Mart. (Note: this is a very popular colour, most Wal-Mart had already sold out of it, but just keep checking until they restock!)

This is without a doubt, the “IT” colour for fall right now. It’s in the taupe family and even though it’s called Steel Grey, it has a purple undertone to it. This soften the colour and gives it a more sophisticated appeal. Unlike many people however, I really love the brush! I have read that some girls didn’t like it because it was annoying to put on or that it was too messy. But unike the regular tiny brush, I think this larger flat brush makes it easy to put on the polish because it doesn’t take as many strokes.

The colour did last for up to 2 weeks, however, it’s probably because I used a really good base and top coat. I really like the square bottle design of the polish; it makes it look really chic. Overall, this nail polish is a great formula and a great buy at only $6 CAD at Wal-Mart. Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Pro nail polish has 32 shades to choose from, so you’ll definitely find a colour that’s right for you.
