Festive Fingernails: Best Red Nail Polish

✯✯✯

Red nail polish is a constant around the holidays. This bold color is festive, classic and timeless. However, not all reds are created equal. To find a red hue that complements your skintone follow these simple rules.

✳ For dark or golden skintones:  bright, true reds look best.

✳ For pink undertones: lighter, orange-reds – will make skin look less ruddy.

✳ For pale skintones: the contrast of a blue-red is striking.

Red nail polish has a tendency to stain your nails. Apply a base coat first so your nails are protected from unwanted and hard to remove stains.  Here are five red nail polishes, every girl should own:

Chanel ~ Dragon: $25.00
OPI ~ Big Apple: $8.50
Revlon ~ All Fired Up: $4.79
China Glaze ~ Ruby Pumps: $6.50
Nars ~ Jungle Red: $17.00

TOP Coat: Seche Vite

✯✯✯

Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat is acknowledged as the world’s finest top coat. Its patented formula allows it to penetrate through the nail lacquer all the way to the base coat forming a single solid coating. It leaves nails strong and durable, no chipping or peeling, and provides the highest gloss of any product on the market.

When this product is applied it naturally thickens, coating the nail lacquer. It magically repairs any minor mistakes of a manicure, quickly and perfectly. The drying time is fast and flawless and it will never yellow.

This is truly the best top coat (or I would not dedicate an entire post to it). The only downfall is over time the product gets gooey and stringy. Seche makes an additional product, Seche Restore, to fix this problem. Just add a few drops into the bottle and – voila – a brand new bottle.
