I have to say, I picked up the red here under the belief that it was a glitter. In the fluorescent store lighting, believe me, the shimmer was a lot more prominent. On hands? No. It’s a deep, shimmery, vampy red, but it’s not glitter. I do like it; I don’t much like the three-coat minimum for opacity, but I’ve heard it layers well.

And then, partly because I wasn’t really having a True Red day and partly because I had tip wear by morning, I did half-moons with Sinful Colors All About You:
This whole thing was just a mess. The red’s an insta-stainer, so where I got it on my cuticles, it stayed. (Usually I scrape it off before it sets; in this case it didn’t help.) The index finger flaked off about 20 minutes later (note clever pose above), and the gold is not remotely opaque at three coats. I like the idea of the red-and-gold combo, but… not this red, not this gold.
Nothing really terrible or hall-of-shame-worthy by itself, but I ended up taking the whole thing off pretty fast. :-/
