Rimmel London Oh, Mr Darcy! - swatches and review

This is a polish I actually bought mostly for its name. I love Jane Austen and I love "Pride and Prejudice". Mr Darcy is one of the characters in that book. Hand on the heart now, who hasn't been a little bit in love with Colin Firth playing Mr Darcy in one of the tv series versions (BBC 1995)…? ;)

The color is a lovely nude color though. Unfortunately its no longer with me since it was a gift to my great friend Goldie who definitely has had a crush on a certain Mr Darcy ;)

This is three easy coats with a top coat.


Type of polish: Cream.

Number of coats: Three.

Formula: Good. A tiny bit thin but not runny.

Brush: Wide rounded brush.

Top Coat: Yes. 

Grade: 3+/5

I'm not quite sure why Rimmel chose such a dull color for Mr Darcy though… Ok, he's a bit boring and stiff in the beginning but in the end quite passionate actually ;) I would have chosen a royal blue color for a polish with this name. Or a dark navy blue ;)

How do you like Oh, Mr Darcy!?
What color do you see Mr Darcy as?


  1. I don't call this shade nude, because is too darker (and it has a little hint of grey). I think it's a taupe. Or, alas, my brain screams so. =) Nevertheless, is a very lovely color, just like Mr. Darcy is.

  2. Trist när lack inte lever upp till ens förväntningar på dem. Eller ja, dina förväntningar på hur Mr Darcy borde personifieras i ett lack då:) Jag tycker att det var fint men kanske inte så spännande, precis som My Vampire is Buff skulle det nog funka bra med nail art på det...

  3. Of course I fancied Colin Firth as Mr Darcy!!! And I have to admit, I quite like that color and find it even really matching to the name - like Mr Darcy I think this little number can look quite different with a holo topper or a glitter or stamped - like Me Darcy the passion shows not right away ;-) well of course we both KNEW instantly that Mr Darcy has the potential to be passionate, right ;-) puss, puss xxx

  4. Men gud snacka om telepati! Innan jag läst din blogg/insta hade jag tagit fram min Mr Darcy :D Å vet du Jezz, det här är den perfekta nude nagellacket ever! Lööööve it!Mmmmm Mr Darcy! ;) Tack så jättemkt kompis :-*

  5. It's not really my colour and probably wouldn't suit me! It does have a good finish for 3 coats though :-)

  6. Oooo I like that nail polish colour. I love nude polishes.
