Christmas Challenge Day 10 - Reds!


Day 10 – Your Most Festive Red

Hi Goddesses

Well it’s either double the delight, or double trouble – I have a double post for you today.  2 fabulous reds, which I will post separately.

The first is Rockin Rubies from Wet n Wild’s Ice Collection.  In the bottle, it’s pretty much the perfect red – a syrup of red glitter and holo sparkles.

On the nail, it looks lovely too – but there is a problem with opacity.  I used 3 coats for these pics, and I am still not happy – on some you can really see how “thin” the colour is.

I love how much this sparkles and dances and generally just is such a prima donna, but next time I think she’s going to be worn over a layer of red, just to give her that little bit more depth.

This is a lovely red glitter –personally I much prefer red glitters when the flakes are small, like in this one, and the extra little sparkles make a world of difference.

This WAS my favourite red glitter until something else landed in my path – stay tuned, Take 2 coming up very soon.

Enjoy !  xx  J 


Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
