To me, red is a classic manicure color. Perhaps it’s because red is my favorite color, but I’ve always thought it makes for a great polish choice. The difficulty though is in finding the right shade of red. Not too pink, too orange, too sparkly, too dull, etc. These are my 4 current favorite shades of red nail polish:
I Love You Cherry Much – Nicole by OPI. This sparkly red adds a pop of color and shine. You might need a few coats since the base is fairly sheer, but it leads to a great look in the end.
Sangria – Covergirl Outlast. This pinky-red is a perfect shade if you’re hesitant to try out a red manicure, since it’s bright and fun, but not too overpowering. Also, this small sized bottle is great to take when you’re traveling!
Ruby Ruby – Sinful Colors. I’ve had this shade for a long time and it is still one of my favorites. It’s a bright red with just a hint of shimmer.
Divine Wine – Sally Hansen. This shade is a bit darker than the others and comes with a subtle sparkle. Great for date night!
What are your favorite shades of red polish? Got any to recommend?
