Today we have a review and swatch of China Glaze – Red Pearl. I have to admit that when I first looked at the bottle upon arrival I thought, “great. ANOTHER red polish.” But once I started painting my nails I had a complete 180. In my collection I already have a dozen red polishes. This is by far, the sexiest red I have ever had on my fingertips. I kept thinking it was such a wet shiny sexy red. It’s a totally hot Valentine’s Day polish. Va-va-voom!
The color is true to the name. If you were to make a pearl red, this is it. Silky smooth red. As pretty as it is on its own, I had gone a few days without using a Konad plate. I’ve actually (sadly) woken up in the middle of the night to make notes for Valentine’s Day nail designs – and I had wanted to do a sexy fish net. This was the perfect base coat and kick off for a few weeks of Valentine’s designs. I’d seen the fish net design done with nudes and golds as the backgrounds but never a red. So glad I did it because I love it. I even had a lady at work today tell me that my nails were sexy. Yeah, baby.
I used my special Konad polish to do the fish net. This is just the beginning on my Valentine’s day designs. I have about 8 ideas so far. If you have anything you’d like me to try, I will give it a shot! Just leave me a comment.
Konad special polish purchased at a mall kiosk. Konad M57 plate received as a gift. xoxo
