After all the fireworks last week, you're probably ready for some quiet, safe manis, right? Heck, no! I got some fiery red-hot manis for you today!
Orly Cherry Bomb. Sometimes, the best polishes come to us in the most unexpected ways. When Orly changed their packaging, they tried everything to get rid of the old bottles. Sally was giving them away with purchases.. but you had to ask. And this was my freebie. Happy, happy freebie.
I love the golden shimmer!
Nothing goes better with red than black and white. Check out this microglitter from Mentality, Antisocial.
If I remember correctly, this was one coat on the ring finger, and two on the others. I'd bet with three, it would be pretty much opaque.
For my second redsplosion mani, I started off with Julep Nan. This soft brick red creme was Julep's homage to the Nantucket Red shade, and I knew I wanted it the moment I saw it.
Great shine, even without topcoat. I've never seen a shade of red quite like this before in a polish.
Rainbow Polish Lava Flows is a melange of red and pink holo glitters in a clear base. I think it just lit up Nan perfectly.
Is this a day-to-night look or what? Quiet, faded red to Kapow-fire red. I am red, hear me roar.
What's your favorite way to wear red? Are you a classic red creme, a new faded red, bright glitter, or shimmer red lover?
