Wishing you and yours a Happy Holiday, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa and all that!

Here a peek of my Christmas manicure.

China Glaze Ruby Pumps, Cleopatra

I just bought the coveted China Glaze’s Ruby Slippers and Cleopatra (as well as Nova and Medallion) at Sally’s.  They were having a 2/$10 special.  I must say, I don’t own a lot of reds but this one is GORGEOUS!!!!!!!! It’s even more beautiful than everyone has made it out to be.  I usually stick to deeper, wine/burgundy reds, but this one is straight on red!!! A very vivid, intense, semi-jelly ruby red with fiery red shimmer ( the particles are larger than micro glitter).  The shimmer seems to disperse itself all over at varying depths so they look almost 3 dimensional.  Very cool! 🙂  I also added Cleopatra which is a beautiful 18K gold small glitter with a few silver holographic glitters mixed in.  This is all suspended in a clear base.  I used 3 coats for full coverage and I experienced no application problems.  The polishes are available at e-retailers and Sally’s Beauty Supply.  Another cool polish.  I added Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen in Honeydew on the toes.  It’s the perfect pedicure colour for the 90 degree weather I’m experiencing here in Trinidad.  Hope you enjoy!!
