Monday Mani: Deborah Lippmann Ruby Red Slippers

I have found a new way to fight my Monday blues away..... it is to have freshly painted manicure on every Monday morning. Today I'm going to show you guys my Deborah Lippmann in the color Ruby Red Slippers.

In total, I have collected approximately 120 bottles of nail polish. By now, it is quite an impossible job to impress me with nail polish. But, I have recently fell in love with Deborah Lippmann's Ruby Red Slippers. The color is amazing!!!!

When you buy Deborah Lippmann, it comes in a clear box. I find it very neat and chic...

Deborah Lippmann nail polish is really easy to apply. It has a sleek and thin handle and the brush is firm, yet soft. It is quite easy to maneuver.

The Ruby Red Slippers is a black lacquer with red glitters. The black lacquer is a bit sheer in single coat. Well, it has to be sheer to be able to bring out the blings from the glitters. To achieve an opaque black, you need at least 3 coats. The red glitters are made of micro fairy dust and chunky hexagon flakes. To make it more gorgeous, apply a gel top coat. It will make your nails pop. Or you can apply a matte top coat, which will make it look subtle.

Here are the swatches for Ruby Red Slippers:

To be honest, the photos don't do justice to the real thing. The most gorgeous thing about this nail polish is that, the glitters shine like diamond when reflecting sunlight. The effect will draw a lot of attention to your nails.

Like every other glittered nail polish, it is quite difficult to remove. That is probably the only downside of this nail polish.

And just as a side note.... During the Ming Dynasty, royal brides had to paint their nails in red and black. This would be the most perfect color for such royal wedding.

I absolutely love this color. I think I just found the only nail polish I ever need in my life! What do you think?
