Review of China Glaze Ruby Pumps by impishnature
This is a must-own for all women, all ages, all skin tones. Ruby Pumps is a sheer melted Luden's Cherry cough drop (as someone alluded to) + oodles of very fine ruby red glitter. Three coats is necessary (on me) to get good coverage on the cherry cough drop sheer and to layer that fine glitter to impossible depths. It's not blackened like a vampy color, but it's not tacky hooker bright red because of the amazing fire and depth that just bursts out...wow. Your nail looks three inches deep and blazing with ruby red fire and yes, it's Dorothy's ruby slippers in polish form.
Note: if you love this color but have always wished it was half a shade deeper, you need to snag Savvy's Ruby Slippers (avail. at Sally's Beauty Supply). It's got all the depth and red glitter bling of Pumps, but half a shade deeper red. Absolutely spectacular.
A great thing about Ruby Pumps is that not only is it great on its own, but it pulls double duty -- one coat Ruby Pumps over any black or super vampy blackened red color is drop dead gorgeously INSANE..guaranteed or your money back. ;)
