So I am continuing to try my new polishes, and today I decided to give red a chance.
I don't exactly know why but for some reason I almost never wear red on my nails. It's not that I don't like the color. I do! Honestly! I think red is a gorgeous color, it's sexy, it fits pretty much EVERYTHING I wear... But when I'm standing before my polish collection trying to think what color my mood is in, somehow, red is usually not the one I look at.
Today however, I looked at the red i got from Liz and figured I needed to try it on.

At first I thought I could try some gradient nails with it. But when I put it on, all I could do was sit and stare at it... I LOVE THIS POLISH!!! It has a very pretty color. It's not exactly red, its somewhere between red, dark pink and dark orange. It has a gorgeous foil texture and when the sun falls over it.... WOAH!! It just bursts into sparkles and sparks and spray of light!
Of course, taking pictures that will actually show you the beauty of this polish was impossible. My camera simply could not deal with the sparks this polish produced, no matter what...
Outdoors, direct sun
Application was easy. I read about this polish before and many bloggers said it was thin and needed several coats to get opaque. Surprisingly, in my case two coats were enough. In some of the fingers there's still a bit of VNL if you look closely but the light that this polish returns makes it almost invisible. One coat of Essie's Good to go - and I was good to go!
 None of my pictures really managed to capture the real beauty and the way this polish looks on my nails. This polish also makes me decide that I need to save some money and get a decent macro lens for my camera! But in the meantime, this is what I managed.

It's not very focused but you can't miss the sparks!

What do you think? Do you like the foil finish? What's your favorite red?
