Hi there. I’m sorry for my long absence last week. I am busy with a large post that requires wearing polish for a long time to test its durability and I don’t have mani drafts lying around. I also felt completely uninspired to actually write something…so instead I just didn’t. I am back though! I went to a family wedding over the weekend (I WILL actually blog about that!) and I wanted to match my mani to my outfit. I wore the same outfit I wore to the CT Meet Up blogger event *gasp* the scandal! Let me show you what I came up with.
I started off with a Tip Top Nail Chic Strength and Vitality base coat to protect my natural nails. I then painted 2 coats of Sinful Colors Ruby Glisten on all of my nails. Ruby Glisten is a GORGEOUS red jelly-like polish packed with glitter giving it the most lovely sparkle. I hadn’t painted my nails for 7 days when I did this mani. I don’t know if it was me or the polish, but I flooded my cuticles like there was no tomorrow. It was so very bad, so I spent a long time cleaning this one up. Once my base was dry I used Tip Top Armour Plate and the bottom image of PUEEN 26 to stamp on all my nails and sealed it all in with Seche Vite. The results: Look at that! Look again! How gorgeous is Ruby Glisten? So beautiful! I really loved this mani. I got loads of compliments on my nails at the wedding. Ruby Glisten is really a stunning red. I have been lusting after China Glaze Ruby Pumps for a long time, but the shop I buy my China Glaze from doesn’t stock it and there is nowhere else that I know of that sells China Glaze to the public. Ordinary Misfit did a comparison of the two here and I’m pretty glad I found this polish!
