Happy day after 4th of July! I hope you all had a wonderful day celebrating our nation’s birthday! I had great ambitions to do a 4th of July-themed mani, but time and lack of organization conspired to prevent those plans. Oh, well!
Today I’ve got vamp on my mind. Not really summer colors, but vamp can be worn year round, given the right outfit and occasion. Two of my Rescue Beauty Lounge polishes are wonderfully vampy.
First up is Black Russian.
This is a black polish with lots of red shimmer. The top photo was taken with more of a direct flash (both were with flash), and so you can really see the red shimmer. On the bottom photo, especially on the ring finger, you can see how the black base color stands out when not in direct light. This is another one of those ‘turn your nails this way and that to see the different color’ polishes. That’s exactly the kind I love!
Next up is Killa Red.
This color is so aptly named. It is the perfect vampy red. I couldn’t capture the exact shade; it’s slightly darker in real life.
The formula is fluid but not too runny. I needed three coats for opacity.
I hope you’re enjoying my Rescue Beauty Lounge series. Next will be sheers, white and glitter. Have a great night!
