NOTD: Red with a hint of Sparkle

I've never been a huge fan of red nail polish...shocking I know as it's probably one of the more popular colours to sport on your nails. I'm not sure why it just never appealed to me until lately when I started to crave red, possibly due to it just being the festive season.

Anyway I gave in to this new found temptation and purchased a dark red polish as well as a red glitter polish and decided I'd give it a whirl.

The polish I went for is the Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Colour (phew thats a mouthful!) in 90 Brick Wall which is a deep blood red colour. These are my favourite polishes in terms of application and staying power. They have a wide flat brush which makes application so simple, even for those of us that aren't the best at applying polish. They also last a long time on the nails without chipping, the longest of any brand I have tried.

The glitter I added to my ring finger is an Ulta3 Nail Colour in Disco Fever. This glitter has all different sizes of red glitters and applies evenly on the nails. There is nothing I hate more than a glitter polish that deposits barely any glitter to your nail! grr Ulta3 is another brand of polish I love, they apply well and best of all are super cheap and come in a tonne of colours! (I got this one for $2AUD)

I love how this looks with my new ring!! :)

What do you think of red polish? Love or Loathe?

Such a stunning ring! I almost bought this colour yesterday because it is on sale at Priceline for $3.95, it is so pretty on I think I'll have to buy it. I've been keeping my eye out for the new Ulta glitters, bought gold and green yesterday :)

Great combination - I love the red-on-red look!

The red is gorgeous! I love red nail polish, and the glitter top coat looks so pretty. I saw some ulta3 nail polishes in my local Target the other day but nothing that nice! I am digging glitter polishes right now.

Ultra3 nail polish is pretty good but mine dried up :( still, not bad for $2.

Hannah said...

@Candice Thanks! It looked even better in person too the glitter shows up a lot better xo

@Emma I love these sally hansen polishes, so good for so cheap!

@Vita Thanks :)

@Anna Yeah, sometimes you have to dig through the big bins of the Ulta3 polishes to find the goodies.

@Darlene aww that sucks, I haven't had that problem with any of my colours
