Rimmel Metal Rush Duochrome Nail Polishes Swatches

I have not seen this set in any other stores beside K-Mart, at least so far. But when I saw that they were supposedly duochrome and only $1.99 each, I was like what the heck, just get them all! 

These Metal Rush polishes are small, only 8 ml, which is about half of a typical nail polish. I'm totally fine with that. I don't think I've ever finished a bottle of nail polish anyways. 

Bronze Princess is no doubt my favorite of the pack and if I was only to get one from this set, this would be the one. Though I've seen other duochrome polishes that look similar, I don't think I've seen any that is a close dupe to it. The color shifts from a silvery smoky purple to an olive green. Bronze Princess also has the strongest duochrome between the three. All I needed was just 2 coats. The brush is a bit uneven but the formula is good and applies smoothly.

Gold Save The Queen has a really gorgeous antique gold color to it with some subtle green shimmers running through. It shifts from antique gold to a reddish brown dependent the lighting and angle of view.  It runs a bit on the sheer but I was able to get a fairly decent opacity with two coats. Same issue with uneven brush bristles but good formula that dries fairly quick.

Ok, so Pearly Queen is probably not that unique and I've seen many that are similar. It reminded me of Zoya Adina but more sheer. This is the sheerest out of the three and it shifts from a pearly pale lavender to shimmery light green. I did three coats on the swatches. Formula is consistent for all of these polishes and the brush could use some improvement but other than that. I can't complain much.

What do you think of this new set of duochromes? Will you seek them?


  1. Wow! I'm not used to seeing such a strong shift from cheapie polishes. Bronze Princess is definitely my fave of the three. Pearly Queen is okay but I've seen lots of other polishes that are pretty similar.

    1. Yes...I almost didn't want to get Pearly Queen but I guess with the price being small, I went for it for the sake of my blog :D

  2. Love these! Been thinking about buying them so your post was super helpful! Thank you :) xx

  3. Bronze Princess is beautiful. Since I have so much polish...I think that is the only one I'll look for.

    1. Yes that would be the better choice. The duochrome is so pretty
