Manicure Monday: Red-y for a Pedi

July 01, 2013

Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians! It's an amazing day weather wise here in Edmonton, and I couldn't be happier to spend the day outdoors in the hot sun. What is everyone up to today? For my American readers - your holiday is coming up soon! Anyone have plans?

Fittingly enough, I have a red polish to share with you today to go with the Canada Day theme! It's an older polish from Nicole by OPI, part of their Kardashian Kolor line. Red-y for a Pedi is a gorgeous red polish, that leans a little orange. From certain angles, it can read as a darker coral polish, but it mostly looks like a classic red that can be worn on any skintone. The formula is a little watery, but spot on in terms of opacity, colour payoff and longevity. The thinner formula was very easy to work with, and was so pigmented that I could get away with just one coat. However, I did go with two very thin coats just out of habit and to ensure that everything was even and levelled out. With up to 5 days of wear chip free, this is a wonderful colour to wear on your tips for days!
