I am not a fan of red. It has to be a very specific deep whine red for me to like it. Having said that, I found all of these reds in my untried pile and thought, "HEY! I should have a battle of the Christmas reds!" These five were all untrieds...
First up, is China Glaze Ruby Pumps. Yes, this one is an oldie, and I had a mini bottle of this long before I even got into nail polish! But technically, THIS full-sized bottle was untried. I swapped for it, so I could have a real one in my stash. :)
Red Dog Designs called The Engineer. This took two coats for opacity and layered evenly and smoothly. This has that wine color that I love as well!
Smitten Polish Fire and Ice. This is more of a pink red with glitters in it. It isn't quite as opaque as The Enigneer, but it still went on smoothly and easily in two coats.
Alter Ego's Savors Strawberries. This is also a jelly polish, but with tiny black matte glitters. It leans more red-pink as well. I think it is very reminiscent of strawberries! I used two coats of this one and it was thicker than your average indie glitter polish. I used two coats of top coat to smooth it out as well. The glitters all came out easily and spread well.
Which was your favorite?
