Rimmel's Salon Pro nail polishes have got to be my favourite on the highstreet. The formulas are always amazing, and they have a flat, fat brush which makes application that extra bit easier. So when I seen that Rimmel had brought out 'Velvet Matte' formulas in the same style bottle as the Salon Pros, my eyes were immediately drawn. I figured they must just be matte versions of the amazing formulas. They've brought 5 shades out to begin with, but when I was in Superdrug they only had 2 out of the 5, and I wasn't really a massive fan of the other one (Purple Opulence). I've never really had much experience with matte polishes, as I've always loved that salon shine of freshly painted nails, but nevertheless I was excited to give something different a go.

Sumptuous Red is a very vampy, deep burgundy-purple hybrid, aka the perfect autumn/winter shade. The formula is definitely different to the Salon Pros. I found this a lot trickier to apply. It dries very quickly so you've gotta be quick, and if you're not really careful, it will show every little brush stroke, I'd say it needs 3 coats for complete opacity, but acceptable with 2 coats. All in all, I think I do like the finish of this, and will a little bit of practice they'll look even better. I'll probs try the grey in the collection if I can get my hands on it.

Have you tried these yet?
