StrangeBeautiful – Red, Volume I

Monday, 14 June, 2010

This shade of red is…flawless. I rarely wear red nail polish because…well, um. Because. I have no excuse now. Actually, let me clarify – I do wear red nail polish. Just not OPI. There we go. I’m a bit tired of OPI always having some shade of red in their collection. I was pleased that OPI didn’t have it in their Shrek Forever After or Flutter collections.

Jane Schub doesn’t give nail polish color names. Instead, she tends to tell you what her influences were when she produced the color. In this instance, it’s a red Valentine Typewriter. In case you do not know what she’s referencing, here is a link to it.

It’s a beautiful red. It’s shiny. It’s pretty and looks fabulous on me. Formula was great – quick drying and opaque. Two coats were needed. Woo hoo!

    Love reading your posts on red nail polish – I still am looking for the best replacement on Chanel’s Pirate…funny, the reason this colour name caught my eye is because I HAVE that typewriter (I collect vintage Italian plastics…) anyway, I’ve got to go hunting on eBay and get a bottle of this polish just so I can reference my typewriter at home! thanks again, Jan
