Red on red on red

Red hair, lips and nails

Now that I’m embracing my fiery side with a bright red mop, I’ve decided to ramp up my makeup and nails to match. No nude or complimentary colours, just clashing reds all the way! Go hard or go home, right?

The nail colour is Lacquered Up by Essie, a very recent discovery. It’s the most amazing tomato coloured red with a crazy sheen that seems to be chip-free and super long-lasting. There’s a distinct possibility that this will be the nail polish I will use for the rest of my life. Dramatic I know, but it is beautiful!

On my lips is Rimmel Apocalips in Stellar. I blogged about this before and I like using it so much that I’m now on my second tube (unheard of). It’s in-your-face-bright and extremely shiny too, so there’s no chance of blending into the wallpaper.

Are you a red lips and nails person? I have to admit that red nails always make me feel quite ladylike. There’s something very classic and glamourous about them.

    Born to be red! Love it when you find *the* nail polish – I feel that way about Essie California Coral. I could never get sick of it.

    I’m not a red nail polish kinda woman, BUT I’m currently completely in love with “Red Pumps” by China Glaze, you should definitely try it.
