I think no one hates red glitters. So do I. It’s always nice shade especially for festive winter season, so today I decided to use some of red glitters I have - including two of this winter’s new release - and go for red glitter skittle mani :)
Now what I can say for this skittle is, “all different, but all good” :D All of them make me feel so festive and fancy, they’re all very shiny and pretty; simply make me happy to wear. None of them are dupe each other, which made me pretty happy too!
So let’s go for close-up of each; first, essie leading lady from their 2012 winter collection. Although first coat was pretty similar with first coat of ChG Ruby Pumps, leading lady is clearly much opaque and ends up as much dark, bold wine red as its bottle color. Two coats were already OK for full coverage, but I went three because with two coats I couldn’t apply enough glitters as I wanted.
Next, KIKO 405 Bold Red; Also from their 2012 holiday collection. Even it call itself “Bold Red”, actually it’s much reddish pink for me…both glitter and base color is lighter than what I call “red”. I think it’s able to say the color is pinkish red, but well…BOLD red? No :/ …Anyway def most sparkly shade in all four, mainly because of its bigger glitter size than others :)
Catrice’s Marylin & Me is a mix of rich red shimmer with a pinch of red glitters. I could notice good amount of glitter, so I included here…but sadly it did not appear well on the nail :( However it doesn’t mean it’s not pretty! Slight sparkle between shiny shimmer is so cute and sexy, I love it :D Coverage and formula is very nice too, I need to wear this by its own later :)
Finally…China Glaze Ruby Pumps. No need for explanation about this super well-known red glitter polish, right? One of my all-time favorite polish since I’ve used for first time…probably around 3 years ago ;)
That’s it! I think brands are doing great job to create their own signature red glitters, all very beautiful but no dupe each other which is pretty great; So…which one is your favorite red glitter? :D
ちなみに↑の中で一番気に入ったのは薬指に塗ったCatriceのMarylin & Meです。ラメが意外と少なくて、ラメポリっていうてええのかいな？という感じだったのですが、そのほんのちょっぴりの真紅のラメが同じく真紅のシマーの間からちらちらのぞく感じのかわいさと来たら！ちょっとした光の当たり方でチラリと来る輝きがなかなかたまらんで御座います。そのうち是非単独で塗りたいところ！アートのベースにも合うと思うんですよねー+（・∀・）+
