Pink Nail Polish

The Pinks

Here are my pink polishes.  To be honest, I am a little surprised at how much I have that falls in the pink category, because I don’t think of myself as a pink person.  But, a lot of them are on the coral side, and I do like that shade, especially in the summer.  🙂  Here we go!

Color Club Halo-Graphic

First is Color Club Halo-Graphic, which is a holo polish that I love.  It isn’t exactly opaque in one coat, but the shine makes it seem like it is plenty if you are in a hurry.  Other wise, two coats is perfect!

Mary Kay Lava

Next up is Mary Kay Lava.  This polish can look pink, orange, yellow, and a little red, depending on the lighting.  It falls in the pink category though because for the most part, that is what you’ll see.  It goes on easily in two coats and is such a fun color!

Xtreme Wear Strobe Light

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Strobe Light is one of my all time favorites!  It can be used on its own as a glittery wonder, or as a topper.  It is pink and holographic glitter, and the way it shines would stop traffic.  I highly recommend it!

Satin Glam Chic Pink

This next pink polish is Sally Hansen Satin Glam Chic Pink.  It needs about three coats to be all the way opaque.  On its own, it does dry to a beautiful satin finish.  If sealed with a top coat, it looks glittery.  I have not tried a matte top coat with it though to see if that keeps the satin look or not.

Diamond Strength Pulled Sugar

Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Pulled Sugar is an extremely delicate looking polish.  I typically use it as a topper, but can be sheer and beautiful on its own.  It is a very baby pink with sparkles in it, and makes it match any look all year round.

Xtreme Wear Fruit Ta Ta

This next polish is a jelly with white, black, pink, and red hex glitters in it.  It is a little tricky to get the pieces spread evenly, but it a cute topper for lots of looks.  (Especially at Valentine’s Day.)

Xtreme Wear Coral Reef

This one looks a little orangey in the picture, but it is more of a coral color.  It is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Coral Reef.  While this is beautiful to paint your nails with, I really like to use it for water marbeling.  When used to paint, it is actually good to go in one coat.

Triple Shine Water Melon

Sally Hansen Triple Shine Water Melon is a jelly polish that is very sheer on its own.  I like to use it for watercolor looks the most.  There is another one of these coming up.  Of the two, this is more pink.

Megalast Tropicalia

Tropicalia is the perfect name for this Wet n Wild Megalast polish.  It is a tropical, summery color.  It has a really wide brush that I am not such a fan of, but other than that, it is easy to work with.

Megalast Sophisticated Lady

This next polish is also a Wet n Wild Megalast, and is called Sophisticated Lady.  It is a metallic pastel.  It can be very pretty, but it is hard to get it applied without lots of streaking.  In addition, it has that wide brush that isn’t my favorite.

Miracle Gel Pretty Piggy

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Pretty Piggy is your basic pink.  These miracle gel polishes really do have that glossy gel finish and are very easy to apply.  Two coats of the color and one of the special top coat and you are good to go for at least a week.

Triple Shine Jell-ous?

Sally Hansen Triple Shine Jell-ous? is a sheer jelly polish that is pinkish-purple.  Again, these are great for watercolor nails, but can be pretty on their own or topping off other colors.

Fresh Paint Guava

This polish is borderline neon, but is absolutely gorgeous!  I love, love, love it!  It is Fresh Paint Guava.  It can look bright or calm, and is wonderful to bring a bright spot to any mani.  (It also looks great on toes.)  Two coats and you’ll look great!

Sparitual Improvisation

Sparitual Improvisation is a sheer polish that either needs to be worn that way or use many coats to get opaque.  It is interesting when it catches the light because of the way that sparkles.  There are pink and blue glitters in it that make it ver unique and a fun addition to any look.

Color Club Cloud Nine

This is the second of three holographic polishes that fall in the pink pile.  This one has a nice pink hue to it when the light isn’t on it.  But, like the other Color Club beauties, once it catches the light, look out!

Color Club Cherubic

Color Club Cherubic has a more neutral tone to it when the holo isn’t shining like mad.  This one works really well for stamping and adds a lot of spice to stamped looks.

Glosstini Bahama Mama

Covergirl Outlast Glosstini Bahama Mama is that perfect beachy color.  It is a summery coral color with silver sparkles.  You do need two-three coats for it to be solid.  I wish that I had this color in a larger bottle, since painting with the teeny square top is a little awkward.

Sally Girl Cool

Sally Girl Cool is a perfect neon pink.  You need about three coats on its own, or you can paint it over white and it pops a lot quicker.  If you are experimenting with neons, these Sally Girl polishes are great.

Funky Fingers Riptide

Funky Fingers Riptide is a sheer, barely pink, glitter polish.  It is a little thick, but isn’t a problem to work with.  In addition, this is a color changing polish!  (And it really does work!)  Indoors, it is the sheer, barely there mani, but outdoors it turns sort of brown.  It is fun to wear anytime you will be able to admire it in the sun.

Ulta Diva

Ulta Diva is just barely tinted pink.  It is a glitter polish that works better as a topper than anything else.  Since it is so sheer, you can pair it with anything.  The glitters are tiny and iridescent, and make for a nice eye catcher.

Sinful Colors TimbleberryAnd finally, Sinful Colors Timbleberry.  I haven’t had the best of luck with this polish.  It is very runny and makes it easy to fudge.  Other than that, the color is lovely, so I think that is why I don’t pitch it.  I keep thinking I can make it happen.  🙂

WHOA!  That was a lot.  Thanks for reading!  Do you have any faves?

Blue Polish 2

The Blues

Whoa!  Someone has the blues!  I had to split it up into two groups just to be able to stage all of the bottle and swatch pics.  I am a little disappointed with the lighting, but I think as we travel through the blues together, you’ll get a better view of them.  Enjoy! Magnetic Ionic IndigoSally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color Ionic Indigo is a fun one!  I actually like the magnetic polishes, because with very little effort, you have a unique look on every nail.  This goes on smoothly and I like the dark and light colors that come out when you use the magnet.  On a side note, I have never tried any of the other magnets you can buy that are supposed to make other patterns.  Have any of you tried them?  Do they make that much of a difference? Wet n Wild Up in the AirWet n Wild Megalast Up in the Air is a very sheer blue glitter polish.  With enough coats, you can get a blue tint, but I typically use it as a topper.  The glitter is that nice iridescent kind that adds a subtle flair to lots of looks. Color Show Blue BeatsThis matte glitter polish is a stunner!  Maybelline Color Show Street Art Blue Beats has different sizes of matte black and neon blue glitter pieces.  The pieces are dots, hexes, and lines that work together to form this great topper for eye catching looks.  It goes on easily and evenly and gives that dramatic pop you are looking for! Formula X BoomSephora Formula X Boom is another topper that I really enjoy using.  It is full of multiple sizes of hex glitters that have a pearly sheen.  This is really easy to spread out evenly and is such a versatile color for all kinds of looks. Salon Manicure Jungle Gem I really wish I could capture this color in the picture.  Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Jungle Gem is a gorgeous deep blue with a tinge of teal to it.  It is really an elegant, deep color that works for lots of holiday and winter looks. Miracle Gel CombustealbleSally Hansen Miracle Gel Combustealble is a blue-teal polish that shimmers with a purple glow.  It’s really unique and catches people’s eyes.  It goes on practically opaque in one coat, but two is guaranteed.  Used with the proper top coat, it wears like iron. Ciate Ferris WheelCiate Ferris Wheel is a very pale blue that is cute for looks year round.  It does need about three coats to be opaque, but goes on smoothly, so streakiness isn’t a problem.  This one came as a gift in the mail with some nail art stuff…bonus! Glosstini Blue HawaiianWhile the bottle looks a little fuzzy, the swatch looks just like the color.  Covergirl Outlast Glosstini Blue Hawaiian is like if you could mix neon blue, baby blue, and grey.  Weird description, I know…but it isn’t any certain type of blue specifically.  I actually like this one a lot for accent nails. LA Colors In a FlashLA Colors Color Craze In a Flash is a basic/neon blue.  It is pretty sheer, so you need a few coats to get it to be opaque.  Depending on what you wear it with will determine if it looks more primary or neon. Xtreme Wear Blue Me AwayThis is a ver bright blue, that leans toward neon.  Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blue Me Away goes on easily and is opaque in one coat.  It does stain though, so ALWAYS use a base coat (if you don’t already).  I like this a lot for water marbeling, but then the whole skin staining is a thing.  Oh well.  🙂 Crackle Wave BreakSally Hansen Crackle Overcoat Wave Break is one that I don’t use too often.  It’s great, it crackles nicely, easy to apply, and so on…I just never really got into the crackle look.  I do like that this one is so sheer.  It is less obvious, and with a little sparkle it just adds a nice touch. Xtreme Wear Breezy BlueSally Hansen Xtreme Wear Breezy Blue reminds me of a robin’s egg.  It dries with a bit of a pearly finish and is such a beautiful color in the spring.  (Though I have worn it for winter and summer looks as well.)  It needs two to three coats to be opaque.  I like to top it with a black and white polka dot polish and it makes this simple, yet stunning look. Xtreme Wear SplashThis blue and white speckled jelly polish makes a cute topper on lots of colors.  It is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Splash.  With the variety of blues and the little bit of white, this is a versatile polish.  It can be a little hard to spread the pieces evenly, but I have found that it can take a little shoving around without any damage to the overall finished look. Xtreme Wear Pacific BlueSally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pacific Blue is a pretty, basic blue.  It is not a jelly polish, but seems to have more of that feel than just a cream.  It does take about three coats to be opaque.  It goes on easily and is great for all kinds of patriotic looks. Color Club Blue HeavenThis gorgeous blue based, holographic polish is by Color Club and is called Blue Heaven.  When the light catches it, you cannot take your eyes off of it.  It shines so many beautiful colors!  When it is not catching all of that light, it is a shiny, kind of metallic pale blue.  Either way, it is wonderful!  One coat works, but two is best for this one. Wet n Wild I Need a Refresh-Mint I Need a Refesh-Mint by Wet n Wild is a summery, wear it to the beach, blue.  It is totally opaque in two coats.  I have a love/hate relationship with the wide brush in this bottle.  Sometimes I feel like it makes painting easier, and other times I feel like I just slop paint everywhere.

OPI Dining Al FriscoThis polish with hints of silver and little blue sparkles is a subtle showstopper.  OPI Dining Al Frisco goes on easily in two coats and gives a great pop to any set of nails.

Broadway Nails Space FlightBroadway Nails Space Flight is a steal!  You can pick up Broadway Nails at Dollar General stores for $1.  This is a jelly polish, that on its own is kind of dark.  When I paint it on top of white, it is a vibrant blue!  Either way, it is easy to use and too good of a deal not to try.

Complete Salon Manicure Batbano BlueSally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Batbano Blue is a bright, primary blue with a blue, pearly shine.  It goes on nicely in one-two coats.

Zoya SunshineZoya Pixie Dust Sunshine is a textured polish that dries a little matte.  It has silver glitter in it that adds some spice.  It reminds me of denim when it is dry.  This polish goes on evenly and is opaque in one coat, which is a total bonus!

HD SpectrumSally Hansen HD Spectrum needs two-three coats to be opaque, but with the shine of it, you can get by with less.  At first glance, it is a teal/blue, but it shines purple.  This is a gorgeous color, especially in the summer sun.

Diamond Strength Something BlueIf you are looking for a shiny, sheer topper with a tint, this is it.  Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Something Blue can be painted on to be a sheer beauty or in multiple coats to be darker.  While it is barely blue in the base, there are light blue glitter pieces in it that catch the light.

Essie Blue RhapsodyEssie Blue Rhapsody reminds me of a cloudy day on the water.  It is a gray-blue polish that is really beautiful.  It takes two-three coats to be solid.

Color Show Emerald CityI could not capture this one in a picture the way I wanted to.  Just trust me on the shine and glory of it.  Maybelline Color Show Emerald City is a blue/teal and holographic glitter topper that shines like there is no tomorrow!  The colored glitters are just little circle pieces, while the holographic ones are hex and diamond shaped.

Triple Shine Ice TintSally Hansen Triple Shine Ice Tint is a sheer jelly polish.  I like to use it mainly for watercolor looks, but it can be painted on to just be a sheer blue on its own.

And those are my blues.  Thanks for reading!

My Collection

Green Nail Polish

The Greens

Green Polish

The Greens

Green is used for so many things throughout the year, and I apparently have the shade for every event.  🙂  Here are my greens!

Sally Girl DoupThis is Sally Girl Doup.  It is a muted grass green color.  I used it once for a camo nail, and honestly, haven’t used it much since then.  These little Sally Girl polishes are good for things like that though.

Glosstini AppletiniThis Covergirl Outlast Glosstini Appletini really is the color of a green apple.  It looks darker in the photo than it is on a sunny, spring day.  This makes for a nice accent nail more than a full manicure in my opinion.  But, for a nice spring accent, it is great!

Butter London Wellies

Butter London Wellies is a very bright, spring green.  It almost looks yellow at times.  I got this polish on clearance at T.J. Maxx, and was all excited thinking that a polish that costs $15 will be awesome to work with.  Maybe it’s just the shade (light colors can be harder to work with sometimes) but I was not thrilled.  It took a lot of coats, and was hard to make it not streaky.  That said, it does make a nice background for a flower manicure.

China Glaze Turned Up TurquoiseChina Glaze Turned Up Turquoise leans more toward the blue end of the green spectrum, and in the picture looks very blue.  I promise it is a turquoise, greenish color in person.  It isn’t bright enough to say it is neon, but is definitely a summer color.  On its own it dries to a sort of satiny finish, as you can see in the swatch.  I have a handful of China Glaze polishes, and find them a bit runny and hard to work with, but the colors (if you are patient enough) are typically worth it.

Funky Fingers Partly CloudyFunky Fingers Partly Cloudy is a beautiful, calm, teal color.  It is a color changing polish that really does work!  It changes to gray in the sunlight.  It goes on opaque in two coats and is easy to work with.  If you wanted to try color changing polishes, I would recommend the Funky Fingers.  I have a couple and they both work great!

Miracle Gel Super Charge

Super Charge is an appropriate name for this Sally Hansen Miracle Gel.  It is a bright green, with a lot of shine.  Something that did not show up in the picture is the pinky pearlescent shine that it has.  It gives this polish a very unique look, and whenever I wear it, I get tons of compliments.  I know that the Miracle Gels require the special top coat, but they do stay on really well if you are as hard on your manis as I am.  🙂

Color Club Angel KissThis holographic polish by Color Club is called Angel Kiss.  It catches the light in such a stunning way, you may have to cover your fingers while driving.  If you are in a place without the light that will make the most of this polish, it is still a metallic looking green that is lovely.  It only needs two coats to be opaque and goes on really smoothly.

Wet n Wild Atten hutWet n Wild ATTEN hut is a dark, glittery green.  I like this one in the fall.  It goes on opaque in one coat, and makes for a quick, easy look if you are in a hurry.

Xtreme Wear SambaThis is a Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear jelly polish in Samba.  It has green and blue pearly hex glitters in it.  The polish is very thick and makes it a little tricky to spread evenly, but I like this color combo so much I make it work.  It is a great topper for so many things, and makes a great accent nail or two.

Xtreme Wear Jazzy JadeThis is another one that leans toward the blue end, but is a beautiful shade.  It is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Jazzy Jade.  I love, love, love this one for water marbeling.  It is GORGEOUS every time!  I have used it just to paint my nails, and it is one that goes on smoothly and quickly.  It has a bit of a shine to it, and is a great summer shade.   (though I have used it other times)

Xtreme Wear Mint SorbetAnother Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear for you!  This one is Mint Sorbet.  This is a beautiful pastel green that is great for Easter, spring, and even summer looks.  You do need about three coats to make it opaque, unless you have white underneath it.  If you can’t tell, Sally Hansen is definitely my go to!

Parfumerie WintermintRevlon Parfumerie Wintermint is actually a bit lighter than it looks in the picture.  It is shiny green base with blue glitter in it.  It is kind of sheer, so you need quite a few coats to make it opaque.  It does actually smell minty though when it is dry!  I use this one for all kinds of things since the color is pretty basic, and mint is my favorite scent!  (Though, people probably will wonder about you if you sniff your fingers all day long.  LOLOL)

Xtreme Wear Tan LimeSally Hansen Xtreme Wear Tan Lime is my basic green color.  If you are going for just a crayon green, this is the one.  Is is kind of sheer (if you can tell from the swatch) and takes a few coats to get all the way green.  It is easy to work with, so even though you need a few coats, you don’t drive yourself cray doing it.

Triple Shine Sea Through

Sea Through is a Sally Hansen Triple Shine polish.  It is kind of jelly-ish, but not at the same time.  It looks great layered over other colors or in a watercolor look.

Zoya ChitaZoya Pixie Dust Chita is a green, glittery polish that goes on in one coat and dries to a textured finish.  The little sliver flecks in it makes it a gorgeous holiday shade!  I really love the one coat thing, so I use it when I don’t have a good idea and just want some color on my nails.

China Glaze In the Lime LightChina Glaze In the Lime Light is a very bright green with a blue sheen to it.  It dries to a satin kind of finish.  It is a bit thin, and does take quite a few coats to get opaque.  If you are willing to work with it, you won’t be disappointed.  It is a beautiful summer color!

Ulta JadedThis polish looks very green in the pic, but in life it reflects the light to show hints of blue and purple.  It is a very unique polish.  It goes on opaque in two-three coats and is fairly easy to work with.

Fresh Paint HoneydewIf it is possible to have a pastel neon, that is what Fresh Paint Honeydew would be.  It is this beautiful, mint ice cream color that I love in the spring and summer.  I really like that it is so bright without being neon.  It goes on smoothly and is opaque in two coats.

Sally Girl Spring GreenThis Sally Girl polish did not have a name on it, and I have been calling it Spring Green.  It is the quintessential spring color and is great for any spring look.

Sally Girl PeaceSally Girl Peace is a neon green.  It takes two-three coats to be solid.  It is very bright and makes for a great summer accent nail or full set of ten nails!

GOOD GRIEF!  That’s a lot of green!  Do you have a favorite green polish?  Let me know.

My Collection – The Oranges

Orange Polish

The Oranges

The Oranges

The Oranges

Last week I featured the red polishes that I have in my collection.  This week I move on to the oranges.  Some of these shades were really hard to place, whether they would be more red or orange, but you can clearly see where they fell.

I will begin with my favorite orange.  It is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Crushed.  It has a reflective, pearly kind of sheen to it, and can almost shine with a bit of a coral/pink hue.  I really like to use this one for water marbeling.  It adds a nice touch every single time.

Xtreme Wear Crushed

No particular order from here on out.  Just the rest of my orange shades.

Sally Girl Crazy is a bright neon that is opaque in two coats.  It is cute for summer time or for accents.

Sally Girl Crazy

Next up is a polish that I use a lot in the fall, but can be a deep summer color as well.  It is Ciate Beach Hut.  It is an orange base that has a golden metallic shine to it.  There are also some red tones that flash in the light here and there.  It takes quite a few coats to get it to be opaque on its own, but can be a beautiful sheer topper to other polishes.

Ciate Beach Hut

Orly Melt Your Popsicle is another neon orange.  It is brighter than the Sally Girl, but takes three or four coats to seem solid enough, but still can be seen through.  I only use it for an accent nail for that reason.  I have never painted all of my fingers or toes with this.

Orly Melt Your Popsicle

Another mini polish I like is a Covergirl Glosstini.  It is called Flamed Out and I believe it was part of the Hunger Games set from the second movie.  Flamed out is the perfect name for this.  It is a shimmery orange with yellow.  It goes on nicely and I think it is a real eye catcher.

Glosstini Flamed Out

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sun Kissed is a more mellow orange.  It isn’t necessarily pastel, but isn’t your basic orange either.  It kind of reminds me of mac’n’cheese.  I like this one for water marbeling, and for spring and summer nails.

Xtreme Wear Sun Kissed

Zoya Pixie Dust Dhara reminds me a lot of the Glosstini above.  It has the orange and yellow glow that I really like.  It dries to a more textured finish and goes on opaque in one coat.  (Who doesn’t love that?!)

Zoya Dhara

The next one I found on sale and thought it looked great in the bottle.  It is China Glaze Flying South.  It has coppery glitter in it, and autumnal colored little straight pieces.  (I’m not sure what the technical name is for them.)  It looks really feathery in the bottle, and I thought it would make for a cute set of nails.  I was not the biggest fan when I painted it on.  It is difficult to make even and just didn’t have the same soft look as it did in the bottle.  I didn’t get rid of it, but I am not sure how to use it in the future.  Any thoughts?

China Glaze Flying South

I’ll put another China Glaze in next.  It is Pool Party.  When it is in the summer sun, it has that almost pink, hot orange look to it. I really do like the color of this polish, but it takes about four coats to get opaque and in all those coats it gets hard to keep it from getting streaky.

China Glaze Pool Party

I’ll tone it down with this next one.  It is a Sally Hansen Triple Shine in Vitamin D-light.  This is a very, very sheer orange that I have mainly used for watercolor looks.  It doesn’t seem thick enough to be a jelly polish, but isn’t thin enough to be normal, so it can get a little tricky to work with at times.

Triple Shine Vitamin D-light

My last orange is a true orange, just like it was out of the crayon box.  Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Poppin’ Paprika.  When I do things with basic colors, this one usually makes the cut.  It goes on opaque in a coat and dries to a nice shine, even without a top coat.

Insta-Dri Poppin' Paprika

That wraps up my oranges.  Do you have a favorite?  Is it one I have, or one I should try?

My Collection – The Reds

Nail Polish Swatches

My Collection

The Reds

The Reds

The Reds

The Reds

I have a collection of polishes that I am really happy with, and I am going to share them with you, one color grouping at a time.  I will begin with the reds.  Not all of the polishes were easily categorized, and there are tons of different ways to categorize them.  I went with color grouping, and did it the best I could decide.

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pucker Up

I will begin with my FAVORITE red polish.  It is Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear Pucker Up.  It is the PERFECT red.  It is bright, not hinting at pink in any way, just flaming red.  (Red is my favorite color, so finding this and saying it is perfect, really does mean something.)

The order from here on doesn’t really hold any meaning.  I like all of them, and wear them pretty equally.

Ciate Espadrilles

Next is Ciate Espadrilles.  It takes a few coats to get the full red effect, and looks a teeny bit pink in the swatch.  I actually like this one for the fall, because it has a nice golden shimmer to it.

Zoya Channing  Zoya Channing does not take as many coats, and has an orange/gold glow to it.  This was one I scored on a clearance rack for $0.75, and it became a fave!

Essie Russian Roulette Russian Roulette by Essie is a nice, bright red.  It takes about three coats to get to the opaque red color.  I don’t own a lot of Essie polish, but overall, I am not too impressed with the colors.  I feel like it takes a lot of coats to get there.

Miracle Gel Red Eye Miracle Gel Red Eye is close to being a favorite red polish.  It is a nice vibrant red, and with the special top coat, does last for quite a while.  Needing the special top coat is what takes it out of first place, because it isn’t just a polish you can throw on and cover with anything.

Gem Crush Cha-ChingI keep this polish on hand because it is beautiful for a couple days of wear.  Sally Hansen Gem Crush Cha-Ching is thick, and easy to chip.  For the holidays though, it adds a nice pop.
Broadway Nails Hot and Sexy    Broadway Nails polish can be found at the Dollar General, and some are real hits, while others are kinda icky.  But, I think this one is a hit!  It is Broadway Nails Hot and Sexy.  It seems like it has a pinkish hue in the swatch, but a couple of coats of this, and it looks pretty red.  I will say that it rubs off easily though.  Bump up against a wall, papers, whatever, and you’ll probably leave a streak…even with a top coat.

Xtreme Wear Fiesta   Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Fiesta is a jelly polish, and takes a little bit of work to evenly spread out all of the pieces.  It makes a nice topper to other polishes, and it even looks cute on its own, if you want a low maintenance mani.

Finger Paints Stardust Blush  Finger Paints Stardust Blush is a glitter polish full of red and gold sparkle.  It dries textured, and has a lot of shine.  This is another holiday go to, but is fine whenever.

Revlon Colorstay Velvet Rope  This deep, sexy red, Revlon Colorstay Velvet Rope, is a beautiful polish.  It is a rich color, that doesn’t get too dark.  (In other words, you can still tell it is red…it doesn’t look brown or black once it is painted on.)

Glosstini Rogue Red  These teeny little polishes pack a lot of punch.  Covergirl Glosstini Rogue Red only takes two coats to get the full color, and has a really fiery look to it when it catches the light.  There are flashes of orange and yellow that make you just want to stare at it.

OPI Visions of Love  OPI Visions of Love is a really, really deep burgundy/red color.  It is perfect for date nights and when you want to feel a little secretly spicy.

Sally Girl Golden Burgundy  Sally Girl polishes are a nice way to get a little sample of something without going out and buying a whole bottle of something that might just be a fad for yourself.  This one doesn’t actually have a name on the bottle, but it is a burgundy polish with a golden sheen.

Orly Star Spangled     Orly Star Spangled is very similar to the Broadway Nails polish above, but does not have that pinky hue to it.  It is a very sparkly, beautiful red, and makes for a nice mani or accents.

And those are my red polishes.  Do you have any of these?  Do they make your favorite list?  Any that I am missing that I should look for?

Thanks for reading!
