Oh...my...gosh!! I am so glad I received this in a swap (hence the one lippie for price). Essies 'Trombone' used to be the red I reached for when I was in a 'red' kind of mood. After all, once I discovered that I wear orange based reds better I figured Trombone was all I needed. After receiving my package today I removed all traces of last nights pedicure and began anew with Ruby Pumps. I was hooked after just one coat. Then I applied another and I was shocked! I haven't loved anything this much since I gave birth to my sons. Finally I've found something worthy enough to be a holy grail!
This colour is sinfully delicious! A wicked vamp ruby red, with glitter shimmer. Very sexy. I am in love with this polish.
Application was smooth and drying time was very fast. The only thing I could flaw with this polish was that chip wear occurred a day after application (*but* *but* I am starting to think this might be old evil Sally Hansen's insta-dry drops working their diabolical chipping mischief).
Overall I j'adore (or does that mean I I adore??) this polish!!!! My HG shimmer red!!! xxx
I was hesitant with the first layer, but after the second I was hooked. Such a lovely red -- sparkly goodness. I cannot stop staring at my toes, and I can't wait to get it on my fingers. I'm sure I will blind someone.
I tried this for the first time yesterday I found the product fairly watery and was worried it would dry in streaks but after I applied it was dry in seconds. I love the colour and after 24 hours of wear there is no chips.
WOW! I really love this red! I didn't expect for this color to be as great as everyone says..I am usually not a red polish wearer but this color definitely made me change my mind! It is a gorgeous red sparkle color. Very pretty! I am wearing it tonight with my sexy devil halloween costume :)
Let me begin by sayin I love love love China Glaze. I've been using China Glaze polishes for over 6 years now. But I have to say I'm underwhelmed by this polish. Yes it's red and yes it's sparkly but I guess I was expecting more. I reminds me of the cheap nail polishes from the mid 80's. I like red polishes for my toes but this one just doesn't do anything for me. Sorry
I can't fault the staying power or quality of this nail polish, however for some reason, it just turns pink on me.
Everyone seems to make it looks like a lovely rich red, but when i wear it, it is too pink, especially only after one coat. It is improved when i put the second coat on, but i much prefer Red Pearl, which is instantly ruby red without too much pinkness.
Great Color. Unique as well. Online swatches don't do this polish justice. You must truly try this on in person to appreciate all that this polish has to offer. Great price, great packaging.
I love this color! It is the nicest red I've found in a long time. The red is stunning as well as glittery. If you love dramatic, glittery colors, you'll love this. I wear only China Glaze and OPI colors generally and find China Glaze just as good or better than OPI. The staying power of this polish is great, especially with a topcoat.
It's pretty but I'm not blown away by it. It's a very "teen" color. It is not a professional red that you can wear to work in my opinion. I'll wear it on weekends but I wouldn't buy again.
