Rimmel Kate Moss Super Pro Nail Color Collection for Spring 2013

As a supermodel who claims to paint her own nails, it's fitting that Kate Moss has launched a new Super Pro home colour nail collection. "Nails are a huge influence now, it's part of the look now, it's as much as the hair and make up," says Moss.
Speaking about Rimmel polishes, for whom she is the face, Moss revealed that she'd always used the brand's pots: "the thick brush... it was always just really easy that I could do it myself."

"I'm really good at painting, and other people's. I like doing it. It's one of the things I like to do on holiday - a line up of all the girls and make their nails look nice."

But this time around, for her new Super Pro Collection by Rimmel, the colours have got better. Moss said choosing the shades came instinctively: "something would inspire me whether it's, you know, a band or a film or some kind of character - Debbie Harry, you know in Studio 54."

Moss revealed that her favourite colour in the collection was Soul Sessions (a pale beige-pink). "I do like punk rock" she explained, but I'm quite a neutral girl so I think the Soul Sessions colour I quite like, it's done but not making a statement."

As for Moss's nails tips?

Don't do matchy matchy lips and nails: "on a set it would be a big no no..it's always a clash."

how fast does it chip?

It's as strong as my Seche Vite...usually I take my manicures off after a week and it hasn't chipped.

However, it loses it's 'matte' look sort of after a couple of days...but if your nails are already dry and you just apply another coat it dries in less than 2 minutes.

just clean your nails and between each coat with vinegar. that makes a huge difference in chipping.

I'll try and find the NYC one as they actually sell it over here.

Thanks for the recommendation :)

Paint your nails with the base coat the day before, then do this topcoat. Your base needs to be COMPLETELY dry in order for this to work right.

If you try to do it on somewhat tacky nails (even if you let them dry an hour), the top coat will never fully solidfy and end up textured when you go to bed or w/e.

I had it happen the first time I used it. But the second time I used it, I did it on 4 day old nails and the matte topcoat dries in less than 2 minutes. It's really a weird phenomenon.

Unless you want to make ~textures~ in your nails, because if you do it intentionally, it could be really cool.

oooh i bought this like 2 weeks ago but have only used it once

Like I said upthread, make sure your nails are TOTALLY dry (like set for a whole day) before you use this topcoat. Otherwise it will turn the base into like...putty, and it won't dry.
