In days of yore, there were no Holiday polishes. One had to just pull a red out of their minimal stash and call that the Christmas polish. There weren’t any Holiday makeup collections either. Yes, I’m talking waaaay back. Like when Santa was a baby.
This polish is not from a Holiday collection, but has come out during this season. Better than good enough, it is Holiday polish!
From a new Milani collection, One Coat Glitter, this is ‘Red Sparkle.’
Don’t judge the boring name, ‘Red Sparkle’, by the color of this HOT Red! Rich in pigment, this is a saucy blue-red that could not have any more red sparkles in it. And even though it says ‘one coat,’ I did two.
This is the nubbins swatching hand. The middle nail broke so I went a-whackin’. I was playing with some looks and used shadows to try a sexy look for this red.
I wanted to capture that sparkle-topia. You can see how rich it is. And it was ‘rich’ to remove. That’s no surprise with a micro-glitter, or, any glitter at all.
Even in the middle of Florida, this spells Christmas!
‘Red Sparkle’ was easy to apply. Boy, you better not get any on your skin because it was hard to clean this one up.
I’ve always loved to wear red; red polish, red suit, red shoes, red lipstick, red coat. (I feel like the ‘shrimp’ scene in Forrest Gump.)
How about you? Or, do you only wear red glitters for the Holidays? Got a favorite of all time red?
