Sally Hansen Neon Crackle

I have been back to school for a few weeks now, but just now did a back to school look.  I used Wet ‘n’ Wild Megalast Whipped Topping for the big toe, then one neon toe each of orange Sally Girl Crazy, green Sally Girl Peace, and pink Sally Girl Cool, topped with Sally Hansen Crackle Snow Blast.  On the big toe I used a waterslide decal that says ABC, 123.

I’ve been working hard not to apologize for pics, but I am going to say something about the next one.  I couldn’t get a good shot, it’s blurry, I apparently didn’t clean up as well as I thought, and I have tons of dry skin from being outside.  So, please know that in person this is actually cute and fun, not a hot mess.  (And, I have swollen summer feet.  Ugh)

Neon Gradient

Neon Gradient

There is sun here today!  So, I snapped a couple of pics, and I don’t even care if it is too much light, since this summer has been almost literally rain every single day!

Sally Girl Neon

LA Colors Color Craze

To begin, I painted all of my nails pink with Sally Girl Cool.  After that dried, I used a make up sponge to make the gradient with LA Colors Color Craze In a Flash, Sally Girl XOXO, and Sally Girl Cool.  Once that was done, I painted over it with Wet ‘n’ Wild Kaleidoscope.  (This is one of my fave glitter polishes.  It is tiny, and just catches the light.)

Gradient Nail Art

In the end, I think I got a decent neon look.  With a white base, I would have gotten brighter colors, but I like not having to worry about not having any of the white peeking out.

Wet n Wild

Thanks for reading!  I hope the sunshine lasts!

Easter Spots

Easter Nail Art

Tomorrow is Easter, so I did my nails in some fun spring colors.  Please excuse and remaining sloppy edges, since I wanted to get some pics in the daylight.  🙂

Pastel Polish

I did each nail in a different spring shade.  From left to right I used: Sally Girl Simple, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Breezy Blue, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Tickled Pink, and Fresh Paint Honeydew.  Since all of these are light colors, I needed about three coats of each to feel good about them.

Polka Dots

I topped off all of the nails with a coat of Maybelline Color Show Polka Dots Clearly Spotted.  This polish is made of of different sizes of black and white dots, and I wish I had another bottle, because I can’t find it anywhere now.

Robin Egg Nails

I thought these colors looked really fun together, and they will make a cute look for Easter.  The remind of me the Robin Egg candies.

Easy Easter Nail Art

Polka Dot Nail Polish

Spring Nail Polish

This was easy, quick, colorful, and perfect for a sunny day!  And, it will match whatever I pull out of my closet.  🙂

Have a very blessed Easter!  Thanks for reading!

Better Late Than Never

St. Patty's Nails

So, this week has been ridiculous, and that is why I am just now able to post my St. Patrick’s Day nails.

Sally Hansen

I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Tan Lime for the green on most of my nails.  Then, for the accent I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On.  To top it off, I used Sally Hansen Big Glitter Top Coat Goldi-Flecks on top of the green.  This has gold and white glitter pieces, which is perfect for that pot of gold look.  Then, for the rainbow touch, I used Sally Girl C U L8R.  This one has all colors of glitter in it and catches the light nicely.

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear

St. Patrick's Day Nails

While I did not put a lot of effort into this look, I was pretty happy with it.  I hope you all enjoyed your green day!

My Collection – The Pinks

Nail Polish Swatches

My Collection

Pink Nail Polish

The Pinks

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?

Purple Polish

The Purples

Purple Nail Polish

The Purples

We are finally at the end of the traditional rainbow.  After this, it’s on to the pinks, whites, silvers…you get the idea.  So, let’s get to it.

Sally Girl SimpleSally Girl Simple is a pastel purple.  I picked it up for ten cents! I use it for Easter accents, and things like that.

Miracle Gel Hunger FlamesSally Hansen Miracle Gel Hunger Flames is more fuchsia than this picture shows.  It does have a beautiful shine to it, and if you want nails that will make a statement, this polish will certainly do that.

OPI Just Busta MauveI wonder what the deal is with all these dark shots?  I must have thought it was okay at the time.  Anyway…moving on…the next one is OPI Nicole Just Busta Mauve.  This is a glitter polish that actually paints on pretty opaquely.  With purple and blue glitter, it catches the light and is very versatile.

OPI I Sing in ColorYou might be thinking that this looks brown or red, but I can guarantee you (from the spot I have on my carpet) that it is purple, just a very deep purple.  It is OPI I Sing in Color.  If you want drama, this will bring it.  You need two-three coats, but it is worth it.

Salon Manicure I Lilac YouThis pale pastel is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure I Lilac You.  It goes on surprisingly solid for such a pale color, and for any delicate look it is a beauty.

LA Colors Nuclear EnergyLA Colors Color Craze Nuclear Energy is a basic purple that leans toward being a neon purple.  It is a bright shade, but not shocking, so it can be worn with all kinds of looks.  You do need quite a few coats to get it opaque.

Satin Glam Taffeta

Sally Hansen Satin Glam Taffeta has just a hint of sparkle in it, but dries to a lovely satin finish.  Two coats will get you completely covered with this one.

Xtreme Wear

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Violet Voltage is one I like to use for water marbeling.  It is honestly not one I have used for a full on manicure yet.  I guess I haven’t had that perfect idea for it.

Xtreme Wear Pep-PlumThis is another one that works well for water marbeling.  Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pep-Plum is a bright shade of purple.  I have a set of microbeads that match it really well too, so that is always a fun combo.

Xtreme Wear Pink SatinThis one I struggled with, trying to decide if it was more in the pink or purple category.  In the end I clearly chose purple.  It is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pink Satin.  It is a metallic purple that really catches the eye.

Magnetic Red-y ResponseI love, love, love this polish.  Sally Hansen Magentic Red-y Response.  The way it swirls with the magnet, to bring out light and dark shades (almost black) is gorgeous.  I usually lay down one coat, then on the second I use the magnet.  I have never been disappointed with this polish.

Xtreme Wear Deep PurpleSally Hansen Xtreme Wear Deep Purple is just that, a deep purple.  It has a teeny metallic sheen and goes on pretty well with just one coat.

Triple Shine Grape JellySally Hansen Triple Shine Grape Jelly is an ultra sheer purple jelly polish.  I like it for watercolor looks and to add a touch of purple to other looks.

Essie She's Picture PerfectThis pale purple is Essie She’s Picture Perfect.  You can see a bit in the picture that it is a pastel purple, but the shine is bolder.  This one does need a few coats to be solid, but other than that, it is fairly easy to work with.

Sally Girl XOXOSally Girl XOXO is definitely in the neon category.  I use this one a lot paired with black, or other neons.  It adds spice to any look.

And those are my purple polishes!  Thanks for reading!!!

My Collection – The Greens

Nail Polish Swatches

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

My Collection

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!
