New Manicure

My poor China Glaze Ruby Pumps manicure finally gave up the ghost and I couldn't do any further touch ups. So, it was time for a change.

Can I just mention here what a pain in the ass removing glitter polish is? It took me forever to get every last trace of that polish gone. I think I need one of those remover jars with the brush thingies in it for getting glitter polish off. Especially since I plan to get my hot little hands on more of them. :D

Today's mani is OPI An Affair in Red Square. A beautiful red with a deep red and gold shimmer. I love this colour so much. It is just stunning. And, like Ruby Pumps, kind of hard to capture the true depth and shimmer and all the different shades that live deep in this polish.

I did the best I could. :D

Indoors with flash.
Outdoors in shade with no flash.

Outdoors in direct afternoon sun. No flash.

Outdoors, direct sun. No flash. This kind of shows the gorgeous shimmer. Kind of.
This mani was done with two coats of China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base, the first coat allowed to dry before the second went on. Two coats of OPI An Affair in Red Square and one coat of Seche. I need to do a second coat of Seche... I'll do it later when I am done for the evening and can just let it dry and cure. :D
Here is hoping for a mani that will last nearly as long as my last one did. :D I was amazed at how long my last mani hung in there, looking good. If I get three solid days out of a mani, I am happy. I think I got a full five, out of the Ruby Pumps. :D :D :D
What is with stupid Blogger? It isn't making my paragraph breaks as it should, again. Gah!!!
