My friend shared this quote recently, and I loved it so much, that I thought I’d share with you, too.
It is about red. Red, is truly the most beautiful and mesmerizing colour. My love for it is endless…
“The symbolism of red is made up of life, death, femininity, virility, violence, happiness, evil, saintliness, holiness, luxury, destitution, euphoria, and laughter. The murky red of brothels. The sumptuous red of theatres with their rich velvet curtains. The colour of the devil’s robes and the cardinal’s vestments. The red of idealists and madmen. The red of Fellini, Kurosawa, Picasso, and Caravaggio.
I love red lipstick, I really do. I often wear red, and I have converted some of my close girlfriends to red, too. In fact most of them tried it for the first time because I made them. I literally put it on their lips, ha!
This is why I’ve decided to look back at some the post about red lips that I wrote in the past and share them with you!

How, what and
Regular readers know that I am a huge fan of red nail polishes, and I am actually very picky, there are not that many that I truly like. My favourite is actually Revlon’s Red, it is a bright true red, not dull, but not neon, not warm toned, but not too cool – it’s a timeless classic.
But I’ve managed to find another red which I love as much, as Revlon. It is Marc Jacob’s Nail Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Lola. You can see it, freshly applied, here.
But on the photo below is manicure with Lola after a week, that’s why it doesn’t look i’t best! It is with a top coat, since without it the nail polish doesn’t last for the whole week. But still impressive, right? There are very few nail polishes that last that well on me.
I love this nail polish so much that I would talk about it with everyone who would listen, ha!
- Look at that design! It’s the coolest nail polish bottle I’ve ever seen. When I saw the promo photos for the first time – I knew that it had to be mine.

I have always loved red but lately I have been obsessed with it more than usual(if that is even possible), I have been pinning and saving beautiful and inspiring pictures on Pinterest and buying red clothes, lingerie and accessories.
I am still on the hunt for the perfect red shoes though! But hopefully will find a pair soon.
Here is a little mood board that I put together after hours of Internet browsing. Which is your favourite picture?
Apparently, I don’t know such thing, as “too much black”, or, for that matter, often “too much red”.
I have been drawn to red lipstick and nail polish combo for years and years now. But lately I’ve been wearing it non-stop, almost.
While I’ve started “doing red nails” just when I started wearing polish in general, it took me some time to get used to red lipstick, and thank God. A teen with an (often badly applied) red lipstick is not the best sight ever, you know?!
Yes, I do wear it all with a red shirt. Did I mention
