Old School! Rimmel Mania

The sun is shining, the snow is melting, and it's the weekend! What better way to add to an already great day than to wear one of my favorite oldies, Rimmel Mania. This is from the "60 Seconds Extreme" line, so it not only dries quickly, but the instructions read "Perfect coverage in one coat." Deep turquoise, some teal, a golden veil of shimmer--and the best thing about it? A hint of duo chrome!




Is it just me, or is that not a gorgeous shade? This deep turquoise shimmer mixed with gold tends to look more emerald green in lower lighting. The turquoise is more prominent in brighter lighting, and the gold element just adds to this shade's perfection. Mania reminds me of peacocks and oceans. It's so lush and rich, and seems to have the appearance of a velvet texture with its ultra refined shimmer.

  1. Really pretty and quite possibly the inspiration for all the similar foils that came out last year. CMIYN, Charla, etc?

  2. OMG!!! This has been on my wishlist for so long and I really can't it. I did find Zeitgeist a while ago on eBay, but this seems to be a lot more HTF.

    Thanks for the beautiful swatch! *sigh* it's so gorgeous

  3. I am so lucky that I picked up this polish & Zeitgeist back when they were in stores, not to mention not getting rid of them during a purge. I see so many on-line that I had and then kick myself for getting rid of them.

  7. *sigh* Mania is hands-down my most favorite nail polish of all time and I can't find it anymore!!! I threw out my last bottle after like ten years because it was too thick to work with (before learning about seche restore). :(
