Rimmel Peppermint: My Blog's Nail Polish...

Literally how much does this match my blog background!? I first saw this colour mentioned on Sophie's blog and picked it up the other day. Blues and greens are colours that I really don't have in abundance in my nail polish collection. I have always loved China Glaze's For Audrey but have never got my hands on it, I think that this is a pretty good dupe.

As you can see, it is one of those polishes which looks green when put with blues and blue when put with greens. It is such a pretty colour and I was actually asked what it was when I was at work yesterday, which surprised me a bit. 

Anyway, as I was saying, I first saw this on Sophie's Blog (which you should all go and have a look at as I love reading her posts) and here is a picture of both China Glaze For Audrey and Rimmel Peppermint together:

They're so similar aren't they (actually scrap that they're identical!) and I do love a good 'drugstore' dupe. The formula is great, in two coats it was completely opaque and glossy. The brush for these polishes is great too, really wide and so covers the nail in one swipe, fab if you're a little bit 'special' when it comes to painting nails (like me). 

This has gone to the top of my favourite polishes for Summer and I especially love it as it matches my Blog. I may have to pick up another bottle to give away as a part of my 50 Follower Giveaway.

What do you think?

Much Love,
