Making sure you have a good quality base coat and top coat is extremely important for your nails health and appearance.
Recently I have purchased Rimmel 5-in-1 Base and Top coat (left) and Rimmel Matte Finish Top coat (right).
Both of these have excellent formulas, not thick or gloopy and very easy to apply. The 5-in-1 polish dried to the touch in about 1 minute and was completely hardened in about 5, I am very impressed! I had used the Matte finish top coat before thanks to one of my uni flatmates and was very pleased with the result, pleased enough the go out and spend £6 on it! It hasn’t let me down yet, it dries almost instantly and the best thing is, you can use barely any and you’ll still get a perfect matte finish.
If you are in need of a good quality top coat that does not break the bank, I would certainly recommend Rimmel’s range!
