China Glaze Ring in the Red

* I just started a Facebook page for my blog! You can find it on the sidebar to join! *

From the 2011 Winter Collection, I found this baby at Sally’s Beauty Supply for only $1.99 after the Holidays! Even my husband (who doesn’t like red nails just like me) was like “Wow, great deal!”

For me, red nails are boring even though they are supposed to make your hands look sophisticated and gorgeous, I still like trying out colors from other spectrums of the rainbow and beyond (as you may have noticed – this is my FIRST red polish swatch for you! And, I do have more red polishes, which of course, I will eventually share with you!) My grandmothers ALWAYS had red manicures or even plum, maroon nail colors, and I always found it pretty, but I always wanted to experiment with “crazy” colors! This one was similar (and MAYBE identical) to one I had before – Milani Ruby Jewels (and loved), but it dried out, so I was happy to see this one, and I instantly bought it. One of these days, I will see if I can get a comparison of the two. It reminds me of Dorothy’s ruby red slippers (from Wizard of Oz), and I was obsessed with them! I always wanted ANYTHING that shimmery and shiny in red, and there you have it – I found it and was so, so, so pleased! It may also be a dupe to China Glaze Ruby Pumps, but I do not own that one, so I can’t do a comp for you. Sorry! 🙁 Anyways, Ring in the Red is spectacular in the sun!

What’s also nice about this polish is it’s made for layering AND/OR wearing on its own. P.S. PLEASE WEAR A BASE COAT! THIS BABY STAINS BADLY!!!! In one coat, it sits in a clear red polish with red glitter in different sizes. I did  3 – 4 coats to make it opaque and match the bottle color. I love it! It’s one red I really enjoy!

  1. This is a really pretty red. I, like you do not like red polish normally. The reason behind this is because it was the only color my mom deemed wearable. I don’t think I will ever forget the day in fifth grade I came home wearing purple nail polish. She was livid! She made me take it off and of course the next day I painted right back on at school. She always said it was SO trashy to not wear a red or pink on my nails. And then hot pink came out!!!

    • I remember those times! In junior high, I would always wear wild and wacky polishes! My grandmother very politely asked me, “What happened to the good old pinks and red?” and I answered, “I like forest green!”

  2. It really reminds me of dorothys slippers too, love this red so sparkly!
