Valtentine's Day NOTD - Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish in Rapid Ruby and Ciaté Paint Pot in Serendipity

Hello Lovelies,

With Valentine’s Day coming up on Friday, today I have a NOTD for you that would be perfect for Valentine’s Day and my NOTD is Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish in Rapid Ruby with Ciaté Paint Pot in Serendipity on the tips.


This Rimmel Nail Polish is a gorgeous deep red and I have used this in a previous NOTD post, which you can find here. The Ciaté Paint Pot was one of the nail polishes that was in my Ciaté Mini Mani Advent Calendar and it is a gorgeous glittery pink nail polish.

I have tried gradient glitter nails before, which I posted about here and loved the effect, so wanted to try it again with different colours. I love these nail polishes and they are both perfect for Valentines’s Day so I thought I would try them together.

To do your nails like this with a gradient glitter effect is actually quite easy. First I painted my nails with a base coat of Ciaté Underwear Base Coat, followed by two coats of the Rimmel Nail Polish. You could probably get away with one coat, because it is quite thick and easy to apply with a wide brush, but I like to apply two coats. Then I put a thick line of the Ciaté Paint Pot on the tips and left it for a few seconds before gently pulling it down my nail, I did this twice because I wanted them to be really sparkly. I then applied a coat of Ciaté Speed Coat Top Coat, which left them lovely and shiny.

I love the gradient glitter effect and this colour combination and will definitely try this effect out with some different nail polish combinations.

Have you tried this nail effect? What colour combinations do you like?

Thanks for reading :)
