Real Vintage Rimmel Nail Polish

While going through my Mum's nail stash I came across this old Rimmel polish and she let me keep it.
I think this is very interesting as this nail polish couldn't have been when I was around as I don't remember ever seeing this in the shops. I reckon it's from the 80's or early 90's?
The shade is 'Russet Flame' and is in a quite slim but broad bottle with a gold cap and a big 'R' logo embossed on the top of the cap.
To actually top this off, the product inside is in perfect condition and applies very nicely indeed and to be honest it's probably better quality then their range today.

A lovely warm red with little gold iridescence.
So anyone remember this polish or have seen it before? Let me know. :)


  1. I think it was from the 90's as I had a couple like that from when I was a teenager, maybe 12 or 13

  2. My word - that takes me back! Lush colour!

  3. Sarah x-Thanks I was gathering it was maybe from the early 90's. :)

    Mizzworthy- :D I find it strange that the product hasn't gone bad and I'm sure nail polishes have a shelf life. x

  4. My mum has one in her bedroom even older I think! i should take a pic next time I'm at my folks. I don't think it's useable though. :3 Thanks for sharing this!
