Today I thought I'd show you my FAVOURITE ever polish (colour): Rimmel Black Cherries. I LOVE this polish. I love that it's a warm and rich, dark, vampy colour, I love that it's purple (which is my fav polish colour) and I adore the wine-red shimmer. It just doesn't get enough love; if you google swatches they really are few and far between, which is a crying shame! I actually thought that Rimmel were discontinuing this colour a while back, so I now have two or three backups lol.
Onto the pictures!
When on, I swear that this polish looks like a deep, rich, purple aubergine colour with a red shimmer (a bit like OPI Black Cherry Chutney/Oktoberfest), but in the artificial light it favours the red shimmer and it's really hard to capture the genuine hue. This polish really comes into its own in the sunshine and we haven't had much of that lately :(
The only real downside to this polish is the gloopy formula. Rimmel is normally pretty good formula-wise, but having tried several bottles of this polish I can safely say that it's the colour for some reason. This makes application and clean-up a bit trickier (and you're at risk of ruining the mani even hours later - serious dentage on my right hand!), but it's nothing that a good thinner won't fix. I think I'll add more thinner next time I use the polish so it drags less.
Finally, I have some exciting news! In honour of the arrival of my Xmas polishes from KBShimmer (YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY ehehe so much love for that brand!), I finally broke out my final untried from the autumn collection: Witch Way. Rather than do a full WW mani, I decided to use it over my Rimmel mani to spice up what I'd been wearing for the past few days (lots of pics - couldn't narrow it down any more than this!):

|Obligatory sun-shot: this pic makes the polish look browner than it really is... it is honestly purple IRL!|
Thanks for stopping by and until next time!
