Red Glitter

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day! I did. I ended up keeping my Nicole I've Got The Power topped with Love Your Life mani from my previous post. I love it so much, I'm still wearing it. This polish wears like iron- I did my mani with no basecoat or topcoat and three days later it barely has visible tipwear and is still smooth and shiny. I'm impressed!

I was thinking about doing a red glitter manicure for Valentine's Day. I am not really a red person, but I love red glitter. There's something about it that's just so pretty and interesting.

One of my favorites is actually a Maybelline polish: Red Comet.

Isn't it pretty? You might need to view it in full size to see the glitter.

Another favorite of mine is Color Club Ruby Slippers:

Not to be confused with another lovely red glitter, Essie Ruby Slipper:

Most red glitter polishes seem to come out around Christmas time, but this one was made for Halloween:

Fright Night Claw Polish Spellbinding Top Coat in Voodoo.

Some of my most favorite red glitter polishes take it to the next level with holographic glitter instead of red glitter in a red base.

Ulta Jingle Bell Rock.

L'Oreal Bijou Crystals B. Daring.

Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Golden Tourmaline. Technically it's a straight holo and has no glitter, but it's sparkly so it counts, right?

These are just a few of the red glitter polishes in my collection. They're just so beautiful, I can't resist them! They look like fire on your nails, or glimmering rubies. They're fascinating. If you're like me and not really into plain red, you might feel differently about red glitter.


  1. WOW! Pretty. Very Pretty. Thank you!


  2. i know JUST how you feel!

    i'm not a red/pink/berry person at all, i'm more into blues and greens.
    however the day i decided to put on china glaze ruby pumps i was just like "okay, you are the exception"

    i <3 red glitter

  3. You forgot about China Glaze's Ruby Pumps! But I'm loving the Maybelline one, I'm thinking I'll have to get it. :)

  4. Wow @ the Essie one. I might have to track it down now.

  5. The Sally Hanson Nail Prisms is gorgeous. So are all of those ;)
    Ruby Pumps from CG is my favorite.

    Anonymous, Isn't it weird?? I love it! I can't stop looking at them when I wear them :)

    Faith, that's definitely one of my favorites! Sadly, I don't have a very good picture of it so I left it out :) One of the best polishes ever!

    Linds, it is spectacular, totally worth hunting for!

    Phyrra, I loooove Prisms, I can't believe they discontinued them! I love Ruby Pumps as well, it's so wonderful!

    This is a personal request, not for any other purpose(marketing etc.), but as per the issues with picture stealing i thought it to be appropriate. I would just like to ask permission of all of you (my favorite nail bloggers) to save pictures to my personal lemmings list, I have narrowed it down to the easiest form of keeping a list of what i see and love on all of your blogs. I will not be posting them, the only people who would see them are friends, so I would only be advertising your sites if anything :). Just thought I would ask. Take care everyone and keep up all your hard and BEAUTIFUL work.

  13. For some reason, my favorite red is Pretty and Privileged! I don't know =T I just like it out of all the glittery reds =_=;; Lame, huh?

  14. Ish, it was seasonal, I think it was limited edition, but they have been very plentiful at discount stores lately!

    Lina-Elvira, awwe thank you :) It's so hard to capture! Every picture I take of it is bad, I need to practice!

    Mary, hehe thanks! :)

    Shannon, welcome! And thank you :)

    Danielle, just be sure to read the Terms of Service, FAQs and remember to use the search function first :) I have no problem at all with you using my pictures, go right ahead <3

    Anonymous, that's not lame at all! Everyone has their own favorites and their own individual tastes :) I think Pretty and Privileged is gorgeous!

  15. I had that Maybelline Red Comet but decided to give it to my G-ma to try because she thought she couldn't wear any other colors than maybe, brown? But I told her NO take this, it is so pretty! I gave it to her before trying it now I can see how beautiful it is on you kinda makes me miss it but I love my G-ma :)
