Rimmel Drop Of Sherry

To my knowledge, this is the oldest polish I own. I got it in the early 1990s. So it's about that old, I must have been about 10 or 11 years old when I got it - hehe clue to my age ;-)

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (about 3 minutes for a coat - not bad for an older polish). Considering the age, it's in good condition. Not gloopy or anything. I usually take good care of my polishes hehe! The colour is okay. It is funny how my tastes have changed over the years! Lasted really well.

    I love seeing old polishes, and in my experience they work just as well as when they were new if you take good care of them, like you obviously did - thanks for showing it!

  2. I like watching older nail polishes. The Rimmel bottle looks so different and the nail polish looks well still.

  5. Whoa, Rimmel was around in the '90s? What a trip! It took them long enough to come stateside, lol. It's so fun, pulling out and wearing the oldies. I swear no one knew how to make anything beyond frosts for a while, though. lol.

      I'm still unsure about bar glitter - some of it can be okay. :-)
