Hello, my lovelies!
I have something new for you today. Recently some friends of mine and I were talking about the red polish, OPI’s Smitten With Mittens (which for some reason, I always want to call it Smitten with Kittens). The conversation then evolved into one about red polish and how there are so many lovely ones. So I told them all to send me a pic or two of their favorite red and I would dedicate a post to red polish. And here it is!
First up we have the one of the Lauras (we have two lovely Lauras and I’m not using last names to protect the uh…innocent. *wink* )
Laura One is wearing one of her favorite holiday red’s here, Revlon’s Get Reddy. There’s a certain Irish Setter this group knows and loves that heartily approves of the name and color!
And Laura also sent in her Christmas mani, one coat of Sally Hansen's Gem Crush in Cha-Ching over a coat of Revlon's Fire.
Next we have our second Laura, wearing Spoiled's "I Tripped on the Red Carpet”.
Then we have Sue (of Ruby Tips & Toes) who sent in two beautiful red polish mani. Sue has an amazing collection of red polishes because it’s her favorite. Be sure to stop by her blog and take a look!
Here’s Sue wearing Julep Ellen:
And here she is wearing Julep Catherine and KBShimmer Candy Cane Crush. The KBShimmer smells like peppermint!
Now over here, Ryl is sporting Finger Paints Romanticism Ruby. I see sparkle in there!
And April is wearing Sinful Colors GoGoGirl with some cute white flowers stamped on it.
And here’s Mary, (remember Mary, who guest blogged for me?), who loves red polish so much she couldn’t make up her mind which one to wear, so she did skittles! Thumb – OPI A ruby for Rudolph, Index Finger – Zoya Diana, Middle Finger – Essie Limited Addiction, Ring Finger – Zoya Sooki, Little Finger – OPI Smitten with Mittens. Mary especially recommends Zoya polishes and I must agree.
Ruth is showing off Zoya Blaze here, with a quick dry top coat. One shot shows the glitter sparkle a little more clearly and the other shows off the holo effect better.
And here is Lindsay showing off her favorite red, Sally Hansen’s Unbreakable Heart.
And to wrap up our ode to red polish, here I am wearing the aforementioned OPI Smitten With Mittens. I have to Mary to thank for this gem (along with several others). Her bottle had run out and I found her one on Amazon not long ago for a decent price (being that it’s discontinued and Hard To Find without costing a limb). Then I saw it on her and thought it was just beautiful! Well, it can be quite expensive, but when it surfaced in one my swap/sale groups for a very reasonable price (used once), I snapped it up and boy am I glad! It really is a beautiful red polish, and I love the sparkle and shine it. Definitely a great holiday red.
I hope you’ve enjoyed our celebration of red polish! thank you so much to my lovely friends who joined me in this! I will probably get around to the other colors eventually too, because this was fun!
