I decided to showcase some of my favorite reds, I tend to look at them but never really wear them as full manicures so this was a good excuse to revisit some old favs.
OPI Love Is A Racket and Vodka and Caviar, China Glaze Ruby Pumps and Chanel Pirate
Chanel Pirate! Glossy red jelly perfection! To my eye this is a pink based red, but it is still deep enough that it doesn't look garish on. These pictures show the polish without base coat! Incredible shine! Chanel polishes are my weakness, you will see shortly as I am currently attempting to swatch all of my Le Vernis Nail Colors! Any requests?
The only draw back to these reds are the potential to stain. I swatched each color over OPI Nail Envy, no polish was on my nails for more than 10 minutes but I did have a noticeable tint to my nails and the surrounding skin.
