Manicure Monday: Red Carpet

Hello All! The second to last manicure monday for 2014 is here. Today’s Manicure Monday features Red Carpet, a clean and basic red nail varnish from Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear line. Since Christmas is just a few days away, I wanted to stay true to the holiday season. Plus even if it wasn’t the holiday season, you can never go wrong with a red nail polish for everyday wear.

If you haven’t picked this up since I started my manicure monday series, other than the color, I love a nail polish that dries quickly, lasts on my nails for at least a week, and is affordable. With that said, Sally Hansen’s Red Carpet fits all the above criteria and is now on my list of favorite reds. There is a subtle hint of glam in Red Carpet, as the glitter specs are reminiscent of sequins. For me, I applied three thin layers of Red Carpet with a top coat.  

However without a top coat, Red Carpet has a different feel and look. If you decide to not add a top coat, your nails will look and feel like a glittered ornament. Regardless of which option you chose, your nails will still be glamorous for Christmas and perfect for a red carpet event.

Come back to the Crystal Avenue on Wednesday and Thursday for two looks. See you then!
