I love red nail polish. Classic, sophisticated, never out of style. So I thought I would show you a few of my favorite reds. There are so many shades of red that I can't cover them all and I have so many different red polishes that I could probably do a years worth of "Red of the Day" posts. But I won't.
So I've pulled a few of my personal favorites.
Continued after the jump...
The lighter ones...
|Sooki - 3 coats / Dragon - 1 coat / Throb - 1 coat / Roja - 3 coats|
|Devious - 3 coats / 2 coats on the other three|
|2 coats on all|
|2 coats on all (Malice could be a 1-coater though)|
Metallic. There's only one of these (Perceval) because I am not a fan of metallic reds. This is the ONLY one I've liked so far...
|2 coats on all|
It's hard to say what my favorite red is though. Sometimes I want a lighter red and sometimes I want a full-on vamp!
Chanel Dragon and Illamasqua Throb are both one-coaters and the formula on both is perfection. I also love the candy apple red of Kiko 240. But they don't have that "crelly/jelly" look about them - they're creamier.
For that crelly look, I adore Chanel Lotus Rouge and the ever-so-vampy Chanel Rouge Noir.
For a vampy shimmer, Chanel Malice. Favorite sparkly red? Ozotic 621.
