Rimmel Lasting Finish Lycra Wear in 462 Milk Chocolate
I don't know about you, but I like my milk chocolate to be brown, not beige -.-"
Nonetheless, this is such a pretty colour. It required two coats for opacity, applied with a little bit of difficulty (as I seem to have with most light coloured cream polishes) and wasn't a particularly fast drier. The picture below is the best representation of colour, which is a pinkish beige cream. Nice neutral work-friendly colour!
I picked up Milk Chocolate at a discount cosmetics shop for AUD$4, because it looked so similar to another Rimmel polish, Beige Style, I had purchased THAT SAME DAY for AUD$9! If they accepted returns in Australia for cosmetics, I so would have refunded/exchanged Beige Style. I believe that Milk Chocolate is discontinued, and Beige Style is the new shade (according to the Rimmel Australia website anyway).

Milk Chocolate is slightly (very slightly) more pink than Beige Style, but other than that the colour and formula are pretty much a dupe. BUT, the major difference is the brush. Rimmel have decided that fatter brushes are better than regular brushes... I personally cannot use fat brushes, I end up with clumpy uneven application. I guess it is really just personal preference, or maybe I'm just not skilled enough. I've tried the Beige Style, and I had to even it out with a really thick coat of Seche Vite.
Description from Rimmel's website for the Lycra PRO:
NEW! The 1st professional nail polish from RIMMEL Professional finish effortlessly! “Ultimate” Maxi brush for an ultimate mistake-free application. The inimitable combination of the superior formula with Lycra® technology + Maxi brush innovation guarantees perfect coverage for superior shine & wear.
So, though they come in pretty colours I will not be purchasing any more of Rimmel's new Lycra PRO polishes because of the Maxi brush.
