Below: These photos were taken outdoors in the shade without a flash, and I love how the glitter flashes a slight bit of gold and seems to glow.
Essie's Ruby Slippers is a classic shade that is one of my favorites. It can be a little difficult to locate, but it does show up here and there. I believe I got mine from Victoria Nail Supply quite a while back, and I've heard that they're showing up in the mini's at TJ Maxx stores as well. This is a very pigmented polish for a glitter, and I used my standard 2 coats. It has an abundant amount of red glitter in a darker red polish, with the slightest hint of a blackened background. In certain lighting it throws a flash of gold glitter as well. While I think it's stunning in the sunlight or brighter indoor lighting, I actually prefer it in darker lighting. The red glitter almost seems to glow, and the darker lighting causes the background to have a darker cast as well.
I wanted to remind you that there's always a coupon code for VNS available if you click the Codes & Contests tab above. You can add Color Club's Vivid Top Coat or Color Club's 0-60 Top Coat free to your order by using the code MBS1356. I seldom use a top coat simply because I swatch so much, but I always add one to my order for Frankening purposes. The code is valid through the end of the month, and as I said, there's always a code available in my tab every month for something free from VNS!
