Nails – Ruby Ruby

Ruby Ruby is my favorite red polish and I figured if I threw in a nude accent it would really bring the color out. Unfortunately, this manicure did not come out as I had envisioned it would but I wanted to share it with you guys anyway.

Main Polish: Sinful Colors in Ruby Ruby

Accent Polish: Sephora by O.P.I in Leotard Optional

I’m going to try using the colors opposite, I think it might look excellent with Leotard Optional as the main color with an accent of red. I also want to note that I am a big fan of Sinful Colors – the polishes are very affordable at $1.99 and a majority of them have great wear. There is always a few exceptions though, for instance – their mattes aren’t the best and Ruby Ruby while it is my favorite red…. peels so easily. I am constantly having to re paint a nail or do touch ups but since I haven’t found a red to be as true of a color as this one, I stick with it.

      I agree, a lot of red’s are red/orange and I hate that inbetween color. This is perfect

    Love the boldness! Now come up with some magic using my favorite, Cobalt Blue, and we’ve got ourselves a party! (Wish I could post a picture of my nails on this thing!)

    Such a gorgeous Valentine’s Day color! I have a color that looks a bit like the Leotard Optional one, simply beautiful, I adore that color although I’m more into pastels lately. xo

      I love pastels too! Last year Essie had one called Turks & Caicos which was gorgeous – I’ve seen a lot of brands coming out with a similar shade this year so I’m sure they will be big again 🙂

    I agree Sinful polishes are great for the price! Goes on really well.

      I’ve paid over $5 for polish before and once I discovered Sinful Colors… I wonder why! Such a great value

      thanks! You def should be, sometimes it doesn’t work out but that’s when I’m thankful for nail polish remover 🙂

    I think you did a great job …. the nude and red polish is really pretty. A nude moon-bed and red nail would be really pretty as well. 🙂

      thank you! I love the moon-bed accent, you can do so many color combos with it.

    ❤❤❤ the nude/red combo

      thank you!!! I wish the accent was just a cleaner line – I have to really press down that sticker next time lol
