Revlon Cherries in the Snow

Happy 4th to all my Americans!!

On the day to celebrate the red, white, and blue, I have my focus on the red!

I've been searching (obsessing) over red nail polish lately, and realized
(alot don't look good on me) but I won't give up!

Today's holiday is the perfect reason to use a nice red on the fingers.

So my search for the HG red comes to it's first contender


I bought this last year, and never tried it! I have the corresponding lipstick which I love, and the nail polish is a spot on dead ringer for it.

Sunlight


It's a very 50's red (which I believe is when the color was created! aka classic!)
It was very difficult to show in photos because in sunlight and artificial light it looks warmer but it is a cool blue based red with a shot of fuchsia pink in it.

Indoor Lighting
(better representation but more fuchsia pink and darker in real life)


Pros: Outstanding formula! This is 1 coat to complete opacity. I love the 1 coaters!! and no top coat!it dries glossy enough. No streaks, and easy to apply

No real cons, but it is not my HG I want something blue toned but with less pink in it, but this is an excellent one for the collection and I think I will be wearing it all of the winter holiday season!

What is your favorite red?

  6. Ah, a classic. I didn't know there was a nail polish version to Cherries in the Snow! I'm wearing L'Oreal's Apple (?) on my toes today which is a nice red jelly. I like my reds a bit darker. NARS Jungle red is probably my favorite; I find it to be really balanced

  12. Ahh, Cherries In The Snow, a classic. My favourite red is Chanel Pirate, I wore it every day of my final year at university and went crazy when it was discontinued. I own lots of reds and none of them compare to my beloved and much lamented Pirate.

    *cries*
