Bold, sparkly, versatile red polish. It's a classic red, slightly cooler than neutral, and SUCH lovely glitter! This was originally part of a Wizard-of-Oz themed set, so imagine Dorothy's ruby slippers, but with super-fine microglitter. If you're a fan of OPI's INRAW, but you want shimmery sparkle, this is your jam.
Note: I say Ruby Pumps is versatile b/c it can be painted over other colours to drastically alter the shade and tone of red. Craving a deep rich RV red with shimmer? Start with a layer of your fave purple or wine. (OPI's Skyfall is SO lovely.) Want to go gothic or space-aged? Start with a grey-blue or teal. Want a light, tinsel-y effect? Apply 1 coat of Ruby Pumps over metallic silver or pearl! (This is a great way to use tricky silvers shades that get streaky on their own. The red holo-glitter hides imperfections.) Added perk of this strategy is that you avoid staining your nails, and your 1st layer of polish is WAY more forgiving of imperfect application. This is my favourite way to use Ruby Pumps, finished wth a super-glossy topcoat.
TLDR; Ruby Pumps is a versatile red with fine red sparkle. The sparkle is dense. The base is more jelly than cream. If you're not sure what kind of red works w/ your skintone, this can be painted over top of any other polish for amazing control over undertones. It does require a topcoat to feel finished, and like all sparkles, removal requires extra patience. But I love this polish! It's the most lovely and versatile red I own.
