Anywhoo, the color I'm showing you is a color I've wanted for about three months now, when Alizarine posted this lovely manicure. I just about died. Then I tried searching for it, only to realize we don't have the 60 Second line here anymore. It made me sad. Then in walk in Miranda of Miranda's Makeup & More. She's currently having a blog sale (still has stuff listed too!), and I decided to check it out. I usually skip these kinda thinks cause....well, I just do. I happened to check this one out and there it was. Rimmel Hard Edged. I messaged her as quick as I could to see if she still had it, and yes! Hard Edged was finally mine!
I thought this might not be that unique in my vampy shades collection with the likes of OPI's Every Month is Oktoberfest and Ger-manicure, and might be similar to ChG Midtown Magic, but alas, this is different than anything I own.
This color consists of a blackened base with a dark burgundy shimmer with an almost green duochrome to it. Its got a very dusty quality to it. It was kinda dusty around the edges. (Ignore the topcoat bubbles....I'm still having issues with my topcoats bubbling!).
Are you lucky enough to have this hidden gem in your collection?
On an unrelated note, my guy found this video while browsing YouTube, and I couldn't help but smile. I love anything Middle Earth related (hey, I've always wanted to live there!). And I'm super duper excited for The Hobbit! I have to make sure to read it again before I watch the movie!
