P&P Review Meter: Rimmel London 5 in 1 Nail Treat Base & Top Coat

Hi all pretty ladies here!
I’m here with a review about a wonderful product from Rimmel.
I was on a serious search of a good base coat and top coat for my nails as im too much into Nail art these days. While I was searching for it, I found this on an online site and voila, I started thinking “Why not try a 2 in 1 product instead spending on two different products?”
So I went ahead and ordered it. Read on to know how it worked out for me!

Price: 250 INR for 8 ML

What it claims:
Multi Benefit Nail Care - Rimmel London 5 in 1 Nail Treat Base & Top Coat is for smoother, stronger, longer, more moisturized and shinier nails.

What it contains:
butyl acetate, ethyl acetate, nitrocellulose, trimethyl pentanyl diisobutyrate, alcohol denat., phthalic anhydride/trimellitic anhydride/glycols copolymer, isopropyl alcohol, triphenyl phosphate, camphor, aqua/water/eau, diisobutyl adipate, acrylates copolymer, etocrylene, alumina, ascorbic acid, calcium pantothenate, hydrolyzed soy protein, hydrolyzed ulva lactuca extract, hydrolyzed wheat protein, maris sal/sea salt/sel marin, nylon-12, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, panthenol, persea gratissima (avocado) oil, retinyl palmitate, silk amino acids, tocopheryl acetate, bambusa vulgaris extract, aucoumea klaineana resin extract, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, d&c violet no. 2 (ci 60725)
[Uff! A very long list]

Coming on to the review, the polish comes in a regular round glass bottle with a white cap and golden prints. I really love the combination of white and gold on this. It is not so gooey or thick and not very thin as well – it has the right consistency being a top coat. The brush comes in white and is so soft that it is very convenient to be used. But when used on color nail paints, the brush does catch the color – so it needs to be cleaned often to have the brush white.

And as a top coat, this is one of the best top coats I have owned. It stands upto the claim and makes your nails look shinier. I used it on top of streetwear bronzed and the shine really lasted on for nearly a week (though I don’t do any hard work with my hands I was it many times a day). It didn’t dry so fast but the drying time was quiet normal as like all other regular top coats.

(sorry I forgot to click pics right after putting it on – this was taken a week later. I have very weak nails and no polish stands on it more than 2 days, it starts chipping :( but this one lasted without even a single chip for two whole weeks. So I guess the credits would go to the top coat)
And as a base coat, it did really a very good job helping my polish to spread on evenly. Also it prevents your nails from getting stained due to the intensive color of your nail polish.

The above pic is with the top coat on my bare nails. You can see how glossy it is :)

  • Works as per the claims.
  • Very affordable as it acts as a 2 in 1 product – cost effective 
  • Has no offensive smell – so no worries sensitive nose beauties :) 
  • Not very thick and the brush is so convenient to use
  • The bristles are white and needs a cleanup if you want it to be white
  • A very long list of ingredients, not sure if every other polish has such a long list of ingredients
 Repurchase\Recommend: Yes I recommend it to all who are in look out for a base & top coat duo at affordable price!
