Red nails stir up mixed feelings in me. Red is a timeless, classic nail polish colour. Everyone has (or wants to have) the perfect red in their nail polish collection. But this also makes it extremely common; and common is not what I go for when it comes to my nails.
Choosing the right shade of red is also trickier than one may think. After years of experimenting, I've realised that blue-toned reds are an absolute no-no for me, and the neutral ones don't do much for me either. Warm-toned reds that lean heavily towards orange, dark vampy reds and bronze-red shimmers flatter me the most.
Today, I'm showing you the red nail paint that I picked up in my birthday haul - Revlon Colorstay Nail Enamel in Velvet Rope (130).
Price: INR 350
Quantity: 11.7 ml
Colour: Velvet Rope is a dark red creme/jelly. I didn't love it on my nails at first, as there's nothing very interesting about the colour. But after I had worn it for a couple of days, it grew on me. It's the kind of shade you can wear all week long without worrying about your nails going with your outfit. So I don't mind having this nail polish in my stash.
