This is a post I debated on whether or not I should do. The Rimmel Lycra Wear line of polishes is long discontinued; I picked this up over two years ago at Big Lots. And unlike say a discontinued OPI polish, it’s not likely that this polish will be easy to find, even on places like Amazon. I decided to go ahead and do this post because I’ve been wearing this polish a ton lately. But please let me know in the comments if you like to see posts on polishes that are no longer available or if you’d prefer I not do these types of posts.
Anyway, on to the polish! Pop Apricot is a gorgeous coral jelly with gold sort of flakey glitter. The color is not what I would call apricot, it’s just not that orange! The shimmer is really what makes this polish. It’s not just your normal micro glitter but it’s not chunky either.
The color is gorgeous which makes the sub par application worth it. It is a jelly, so it’s a bit thinner than a normal polish, but I can’t get away with anything less than 4 coats.
The bottle claims this wears for 10 days without a top or base coat. Not so much! This only wears a couple of days on me before it chips. Though, I will admit, I have no tried it without a base or top coat but I have tried it with several different kinds of base and top coats.
As always, there are a ton more pictures below the jump. And just a reminder, you can still enter our July Julep Maven giveaway! It’s super easy to enter so check out Katie’s giveaway post if you haven’t already 🙂
