Good afternoon. I have another post for you today - featuring a few other polishes that are releasing tonight! I am very happy to announce that Red Dog Designs is officially back with 2 new Valentine's Day polishes for us all to oooh and aaaah over! I have greatly missed Gina's creations and think you're e going to love what she's been working on. You can pick up Wine Time and Cherub Rock tonight (1/30) at 8pm EST. Each will be $10. So I am eager to know which is your favorite of the 2. So plese leave me a comment, let me know!
The first polish I have to share is Wine Time! Inspired by the Panteone Color of 2015, this is a gorgeous redish-marsala polish full of holo shimmer and sparkle. It actually dries to a suede finish which is very pretty and unique, although I forgot to take a picture of it that way so check out this post from Pointless Cafe to see Wine Time in it's natural suede state. I was actually too eager to topcoat it and see that sparkle pop - and wow does it! With every movement of my hands I saw sparkles and bling. Formula and application were both good, Wine Time covered completely in 2 coats. Be sure to let each layer dry fully before adding the next - especially if you plan to wear it with the suede finish. But if you want the glossy finish use topcoat like I did!
The other polish Gina has for us is Cherub Rock. Glitter bombs are her thang so I am happy she created a fun one for us this coming holiday. Cherub Rock (yes inspired by the Smashing Pumpkins song - listen to it HERE) is full of metallic pinks and silvers (circles, triangles, sequins) and matte black (hearts and stars). Of course it has her signature touch, a nice dose of holo sparkle. It's an awesome blend and will look great over all kinds of base colors - pinks, reds, white, silver, grey, etc... I used Barielle Grey Skies as my base and fell it showed off all the glitters and holo sparkle. I actually used the sponge method again with this glitter topper - brushing glitters and base onto a cosmetic sponge and dabbing it on my nails. This helped get maximum glitters and less base. I sponged on 2 coats of Cherub Rock and finished with a thick layer of topcoat.
