It seems like I did not write about red in quite some time… This is why today I want to share about my top 3 red nail polishes. I love red nail polish so much that it is even my Twitter’s header photo.
So what nail polishes are we talking about?

This is probably my all time favourite red! It is a hot tomato red which is opaque with only one layer, it is glossy and shiny and last pretty well on my nails. Whenever I am in doubt about my manicure shade – I go for this one. And how gorgeous is that bottle?

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 used to be a bit obsessed with all the different nail polishes. All those out-of-this-world stunning shades and innovative finishes really rocked my world. Of course, I am no way even close to the real nail polish fanatics, but I do have several shades of yellow, for example.
But recently something changed and I’ve been wearing classic colours all the time, think red/berry/plum. I don’t know why, but every time I paint my nails with green or brown, I’m not feeling it. It’s been like this for about two months. Back to the basics?
The only shades that
Today I am wearing Revlon’s Revlon Red, which I had to get after seeing the swatches of it online, and I have mixed feeling about it. I like a lot of products from Revlon and I really wanted to like the nail polish, too, especailly after reading some great reviews.
So why do I have mixed feelings? First of all lets start with the positive things about it!
The colours are really beautiful and there are quite a lot to choose from. I have 2 Revlon nail polishes and they are both very beautiful! The colours are very pigmented and are opaque with only one layer (but two layers give a even better coverage).
Now this swatch is just UGLY! I know. But I just wanted to show what I mean by saying that I can’t manage to use this brush – the nail polish is all over the place as you can see and I can’t manage to paint my nails near the cuticle. But the colour however is stunning! I am showing you only one nail because all the others look the same unfortunately.
And what I don’t like about it. For some reason Revlon nail polishes don’t stay for a long time on me even after I’ve used a Seche Vite top coat. I am also not sure if I like the brush, maybe I just need to get used to it but that is obviously my personal preference. I am not saying that it’s a bad brush but for some reason I can’t use it without making a huge mess.
I will try to experiment with these nail polishes more and I really hope that they will stay on for a longer time. It is such a shame that it starts chipping on the second day as the colours are SO beautiful.
And for how long does the Revlon nail polish stay on your nails?
