And so, I went on the hunt for this red. Everywhere. Reds with blue undertones and reds with yellow undertones. Pinkish reds. Reds of all stripes.
It's not that I wanted All Reds. I wanted My Red. The one that would work with, as opposed to against, my skintone.
And so it was that I came to approach my considerable stash, with an eye toward unearthing that polish.
Here's the bottle that found me; the one that called out ....
The impossibly beautiful Pekin.
Pekin of Nubar's Finest Silks Collection.
It's a luscious color.
Very glossy. And the application? Smooth as silk.
Pekin, like all Nubar polishes, is free of formaldehyde, phthalate (DBP), and toluene. It's also vegan and cruelty free.
But, I can never leave well enough alone.
One day later, here's a shot of Pekin, brushed with a layer of China Glaze Fairy Dust.
I sure do love me some holographic glitter magic.
Micro holographic shimmer. Makes me giddy. It should be a controlled substance.
Like Pekin above it, Fairy Dust is free of bad toxic stuff.
What's not to love?
Happy Friday, ladies.
