Red Hot Mani!


I'd been wanting to do a Red Hot Manicure for some time, and it took all my strength not to add some kind of glitter top coat! With so many glitter polishes in varying shapes, sizes and colours (including several multi-coloured bottles) combined with a severe Glitter Obsession, I think I displayed enormous courage and restraint in keeping this mani glitter-free. Pretty sure my next one will resemble a fucking Christmas Tree!




Products Used:
Bourjois 1 Seconde Gel Texture Nail Enamel in Rouge
Max Factor Nailfinity Glossy Top Coat











Disclaimer: Bourjois was won by me and Max Factor I paid for.

  4. Oh, that looks great - I am a hardcore glitter addict and am currently trying to wean myself off using it all the time, especially as it is so freaking hard to take off! Your blog looks interesting, am going to follow :)

    1. Awesome, thanks so much! I agree - someone needs to invent a hardcore remover specifically for glitter polishes. Takes forever to get the glorious stuff off! LOL

    1. Thanks! I had to do a fair bit of prep to get them the same length and shape beforehand. I'd been putting it off for ages, lol.

  6. I love it, looks brilliant! I love glitter too but I do wear red a lot too. I've never tried a gel finish- are they difficult to take off? Tell me as I'm tempted to try it.

    1. No problems whatsoever removing this (wasn't sure so just removed it off 1 nail just then lol). I don't think its the same Gel that you get in a Nail Salon then - they are meant to last 2 weeks longer than normal polish yet this one has started chipping after a few days (applied the polish a few days before writing the post).
