Rimmel Mintilicious

Rimmel MintiliciousWelcome back, Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish! Way back in 2010 Rimmel stopped selling their 60 Seconds Nail Polish in the States. At the time there were rumors of a relaunch but as time passed I began to think those were, perhaps, just rumors. Luckily Rimmel finally made good on those rumors! Recently the Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish line has started to show up again in US drugstores. The line has been repackaged and reformulated and I was super excited to give it a try.

Mintilicious fits nicely into my current nail polish loves. It’s a bright, not chalky mint creme with subtle blue undertones. It’s a flattering mint color and in the same color family as wet n wild megalast I Need a Refresh-mint.

The formula was good though I did need three coats to get an opaque color. But the formula wasn’t runny or difficult to work with. That being said, Rimmel claims this is a one coat nail polish that dries in under 60 seconds. That is definitely not true but this polish did set fairly quickly.

I really love this polish. The color is bright, fun and perfect for the warm weather! Plus it’s just fun to wear.

Below the jump I have information on the new packaging and brush as well as a comparison to the old bottle and brush along with additional swatches of Mintilicious. I’d love to know if you’ve tried any of the new Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish and what you thought about it. I’m definitely looking to try some of the other (42) colors!

I have to admit the new Rimmel 60 Seconds bottles are ADORABLE. The overall look of the bottle didn’t change much. The Union Jack sticker is a nice touch and the only major difference other than size. The new bottles contain just .27 fl oz of product where as the old bottles contain .4 fl oz of product.

The other major difference is the brush. The new bottles have a shorter handle as well as a shorter, wider, thicker brush. I prefer the new brush. It gives nice control and coverage.

  1. Really pretty!

  2. That’s a really pretty color. Isn’t today’s giveaway winner supposed to be announced? Will it be on this site or a social media site?

  3. I bought 710 “Sunny Days” It’s bright yellow Last week and I LOVE IT! I love the Brush but since I have little nails I had to be careful but It lasts almost as long as CG or OPI nail polish and now I want MORE!

    • I looked at Sunny Days but passed because I wasn’t sure about the formula. I’ll definitely have to check it out! I’m really impressed with this line of polishes so far 🙂
