I know my red is lateâ€¦itâ€™s very late. I hate it when Iâ€™m behind, but I was all over the freeways today. Mostly driving from here to Pleasanton to go to a Gem Faire. It was meh. Iâ€™ve been to much better and I wish that my gem guys had been there. I found a new vendor and yay for me!
Anyway, the color I present for this Fridayâ€™s red is a bit gorgeous, if a bit moody to work with.
I have to admit that this bad baby is a gorgeous crÃ¨me â€“ itâ€™s a pretty red with gorgeous blue undertones. I love that the beautiful shade looks pure and unfettered on my skin tone. However, it had a big flaw â€“ application. Ugh. It was thin. It was runny. It didnâ€™t do a nasty cuticle pull on me â€“ thank goodness! However, it wasâ€¦ugh. It was/is a beautiful red, donâ€™t get me wrong.
Two main problems:Â It was thin. So thin I had to do 3 coats. It took forever and a day to dry. See the picture? 3 coats. It took 3 hours to dryâ€¦and even then that drying was not guaranteed. So I put my hands in my hair after three hours and then BAM! There were marks in the polish FROM MY HAIR. What the hell? Three hours later? I was really annoyed given that I paid $21 dollars and I couldâ€™ve had a better drying time from a $1.99 polish from the drugstore. Yea, I went there.
Anyway, enough of the bitchery and enjoy the end result â€“ a gorgeous, vibrant red that really makes me happy despite the drama.
