Gates of Ruby

I am trying for a Thanksgiving-themed week…although I am not doing my thanksgiving mani until Wednesday or Thursday night! Which really means you won’t see it until next week at the earliest (sorry). Enjoy these in the meanwhile!

I have bought surprisingly few new nail polishes this year…it is already November and I think I have maybe 20 new ones from the entire year? Which given how often I want to buy one is actually impressive. This is one of my recent purchases, Ruby by KBShimmer from their overwhelmingly sparkling Birthstone collection.

Ruby was opaque in two easy coats, and incredibly glittery. The saturated reddish-pink jelly means that the silver flecks glow more pink than silver, but it is quite pretty! Unfortunately, this is definitely a pink-leaning red polish, rather than a true red. I like it anyway. Suuuuuper sparkly! Honestly, I like the other one I bought better (Sapphire), but this is quite a pretty color and I don’t have any light red glittery monstrosities in my collection yet! I almost want to buy the green (Emerald) as well, but I hardly wear my green glitters as is, and I own like 5 of them. At least I wear my blues and my reds!

For the design, I started with just a geometric black stamp with the intention to matte the final pattern, but the result didn’t tickle me. So I added the gold and I love it! I still matted the finished design, and I am glad I did. I also bough the Oy Matte top coat from KBShimmer because my matte (a Sally Hansen) just wasn’t getting the job done. Oy Matte is wonderful!
