Red Nails: Essie Russian Roulette

Eyeliner + mascara and red nails are the most “me” makeup products. I feel my best when I am wearing good eye makeup and a good red nail varnish.

I have had a few favourites during the years, such as:

And now it’s time to share my favourite red of 2021 so far!

And it is…

Beauty Inspiration: Red Nails, Lips, Shoes, Dresses

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?

party dressesAs for red makeup, I have been a fan of red lips & nails for years. And red eye makeup ? Or red eye liner? Sure, why not!

 

Nails Of The Day: Dior Pandore. Forever Red.

I am the biggest red manicure fan ever, and quite frankly red nail polish is one of my favourite makeup product, it feels very me. And while I have been a huge fan of Max Factor Cerise, and used up 3 bottles  of it, I’ve decided to treat myself to some  high end red nail polishes.

So please meet these beauties: YSL  6 Red Dada and 754 Dior Pandore.

I would say that Dior nail polishes are probably my favourite high end ones, I love the wide and thin brush, the formula and the application. Below I am wearing

Nails Of The Day: Marc Jacobs Nail Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Lola

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.

Too Much Red? Red Lips and Nails Of The Day!

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?!
