I am a huge fan of red polish. I think finding the right shade is key to completing any budding lacquerhead's collection and is the quintessential classic mani. Feminine and clean, a red mani dresses up any outfit.
So when it came to choosing a red manicure for today's Twinsie Tuesday post, I was completely overwhelmed. I lined up about twelve of my red polishes on my vanity, hoping one would call out to me as the polish for this post. In the interim, I decided to wear NOPI Kourt is Red-y for a Pedi, a gift from a Secret Santa. A bright cherry jelly, the NOPI applied smoothly and was semi-opaque in three coats.
As Tuesday approached, I had yet to pick out the right red for the TT post. Simply using the NOPI seemed a bit of a cop out, so I decided to layer Pure Ice Twist and Shout over it, hoping for the best. Surprisingly, I really loved this glitter! An otherwise, sheer red jelly packed with ruby red shimmer, I hadn't expected to love the larger blue and red hex glitter interspersed in the shimmer. However, Twist and Shout applies evenly and sparingly, leaving a pretty cool mani that would probably be better suited for July 4.
While not my classic red mani, I still really like this combination. What do you think, ladies?
