True Ruby Slipper Nails

I came thiiiiiiis close to being a normal person today.  I was so close to just applying a beautiful, strong red and saying "yes, this is sufficient, I am finished now".  NOPE, GLITTER EVERYWHEREREREREREREEEERRRR.

I've had Rimmel Stiletto in my drawer for a while now and oh how I pined for it when I had those horrible stains on my nails.  USE BASE COAT EVERY SINGLE TIME LADIES.  Even with a white base coat, the polish is just a jelly it just never looked right.  Now I'm being a proper person and don't have stains on my nails, I can use this gorgeous red jelly without issue!  Three coats is best with this one, just to make sure the finish is perfect.  Once done, I couldn't resist adding a little matching glitter.  I've had this red holo glitter for a while now and have been trying to find a way to use it, as it's tricky when it's so small.  Turns out, with a matching red base, glitter dots are perfect.  You don't really notice them until the light hits, and THEN you notice them. 







The Verdict: Gotta try more of this - matching the glitter to the polish but letting the polish show through more.  Yay sparkly!

The Polish:

  • Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro, Stiletto, drug stores.
