H&M red nail

22 May


This is red nail from H&M.. not the most creative name in the world, but it describes it really well! Again, you can see the rift in my nail 😦 poor nail, but it hung in there for a long time! Anyways, the nailpolish is a jelly, and it takes three coats to make it more or less opaque! I keep buying reds in the hopes that they will be a creme finish, but alas, they never are! The colour is great on this one though! True red, and what you see in the bottle is what you get on the nail, unlike a few China Glazes i own!

This was a bit messy, but i’m feeling a bit all over the place today 😛

I used H&M latte 2 go as the base, China Glaze White Out for the white stripes, China Glaze Ink (with a thin brush) for the stripes and i thiiink China Glaze Revolution for the red.. but you can use any red really… Would you like me to do a tutorial on this one???

My camera was actiong up while i was doing these swatches (i need me a macro lens), so the picture is not the best ever, but the colour is accurate!


This is a jelly, and it needed 4 coats, but it really is an amazing red colour! it looks way better on the nails than in the bottle!

This is a bit hastily applied, so it’s not that even, but i really love this polish! It’s a quite sheer red, and i had to use four coats to make it completely opaque. I bought the holidays box of mini polishes, and i really love them all 😀

This is truly a true red. it is however a bit more on the blue side than on the orange/yellow side.

I am sorry about the chipping on the tips, but i had to take this after work, and i had a tough day (nail-wise).

Anyroad, this is a red glitter polish. It has a transparent jelly base in a deep red tone, and some truly gorgoeus red glitters in it. I really love this polish! This is a part of the Wizard of Oz collection!
