NOTD: Ruby Reds

by - Friday, February 24, 2012

Just a really quick post today, to show you how I've been wearing my nails for most of this week. The main colour in this look, is actually a polish that I've been craving since before Christmas, and I spotted it in a Blog Sale recently, so obviously I quickly grabbed it. It's also a polish from a company that I've never tried before, so I was pretty excited to try it out. I started the week by only wearing the main colour, by itself, however my Mum thought that perhaps it would look nicer with a bit of glitter over the top, so I decided to give it a shot.

Anyway, this is what they're looking like today:


The red is a very shimmery red, that wasn't quite the kind of red that I'd been expecting, but it's a really weird shade, because under different lighting it look different shades. Sometimes it looks like a very dark red, whilst outside it is of course a much bright red.

In the images you can definitely see that this is a very shimmery polish, which you obviously can't tell on my nails, because of the glitter over the top, but it really is a pretty colour. It'd probably a bit better suited to the Christmas period, but heh who cares right ;)

The top coat was the exact same one that I used a couple of weeks ago, in my Mirror Mirror Pink Delight NOTD, but here is a better image of that polish, because the one on my previous post wasn't that good quality:

As I said last time, this is more like chunks of foil that glitter, and the chunks are definitely larger and more random in size than other glitter-based polishes that I've tried.

Overall, I don't think that I like this NOTD as much as I liked the Mirror Mirror Pink Delight look. And that seems really weird for me, because I'm a much bigger than of red polishes than I am of bright pinks, which I don't normally favour.

What do you think of this weeks look?
