This week I am dedicating to my favorite color, red.  Red may be my favorite color, but I am not a fan of it on my finger nails.  I love it on my toes, though.  I love the way it looks on everyone else, but I just get sick of it really quickly when I am wearing it.

Essie has some great reds.  Fishnet Stockings is a red creme, slightly falling into the dark red catagory.

Cherry Bomb is a perfect name and description for this color.  It is a bright red creme.

I can't believe I am going to show you my toes, but you have to see the chemical reaction that occured the other night when I polished them.  I used one coat of Essie, Plumberry and topped it with Zoya, Astra.  I used Seche Vite top coat and Nail Tek 10-Speed qiuck dry drops.  The Seche Vite and quick dry drops did NOT play nice.  Check this out~

Crazy, huh!

That is a bizarre reaction! Your toes are cute. You can show them any time. That's crazy that you don't like red on your nails. Your nails look so pretty. I have to get some of those reds. Enjoy your holdiays.

I agree, I don't care for red on my fingers usually. I get bored. That's weird what Seche and the quick drops did. I don't have many Essies because their selection is like all red and pink and boring sheers.
