Soooo, two things about red nail polish!
1. One is always looking for the perfect, flattering, amazing red polish. (And lipstick!)
2. People* are Concerned that red polish may make one look Fast, and, perhaps, Loose.**
That said, one of my oldest polish acquisitions is…
There’s a new post-reformulation red. I feel like I ought to try it, I guess. Because I am not completely happy with my existing, classic, vampy, and hot red.†
Anyway! There are only about 4, 5 “nail art” things I’d be interested in? The simple ones! So I am interested in the “glitter gradient.” Basically, you take a glitter polish with medium-to-bad coverage, and paint it in receding layers, so a gradient comes out. Which is my thing!
The glitter is two things: JANE Megawatt – which is the solid glitter on my index finger – and Pure Ice Bare It All. They are identical. Weirdly so – they are both gold glitter with random copper glits. The PI BiA has thicker coverage, so that’s a difference, the only one. I’ma get rid of one, probably the Pure Ice, because it’s less usable for gradients.
|My index finger is the Pure Ice. Less gradient-y but otherwise identical.|
But anyway: RED.
* To a certain Type of Person, don’t you know. (The kind that sits on hiring committees.)
** …why? Red? It’s a color? I don’t… even…
† Yeah, no, I really am.
