There’s something iconic about a red manicure. It’s reminiscent of old Hollywood and slightly dangerous in its boldness. It is indisputably the sexiest nail polish color out there, so every girl should have at least one go to red in her arsenal. Here are my favorites:
Revlon Cherries in the Snow is my number one, mainly because of its history. My mother and grandmother both wore it regularly, and it reminds me of them. It’s a great blue-red for cooler skin tones and is definitely unique.
While that one takes the award for Best Red Polish In My Cabinet, there are a number of honorable mentions. Formula X’s X Loves Rouge is what I consider to be the runner up. Developed exclusively for Sephora’s VIB Rouge clients, it’s is a fantastic neutral red with intensely saturated color – you can get by with just one coat. Luckily for you there are people on Amazon who will sell this awesome color to non VIB Rouge members.
Another favorite of mine is OPI’s Red Hot Ayers Rock. It’s great with any skin tone and extremely chip resistant. If you’re an OPI fan but want a bit more sparkle, try out Crimson Carol- it’s especially in season around Christmas. For a deeper, darker, more dramatic red check out Royal Raja Ruby.
