Hello lovelies! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and although it has passed, I know a lot of you are still on holiday, so that's still great. Today I have for you the last of the China Glaze Let it Snow collection swatches. This was my Christmas manicure so that's why I'm posting it so late.
|China Glaze Ring in the Red, 2 coats over Nailed by Sleek in Geisha's Seal, artificial light|
Ring in the Red is a red glitter in a clear base. There are small glitter pieces along with some larger pieces, but the size is still pretty small making it a very subtle glitter that can be worn by anybody. All in all, this is pretty sheer. I think it would take around 4 coats to make it opaque, so I decided to layer it over a red base.
I didn't have a good red in my collection so I purchased the base color (Nailed by Sleek in Geisha's Seal) to use for Christmas manicures this year. I was hoping for this red to be more cool toned, but it's still pretty warm so I wouldn't wear it on its own just because I think it doesn't go well with my skin tone. It's really hard to find a good red, in my opinion. These pictures came out a tad more orange than the mani was in reality.
While I really loved how this combo looked on the nail, I didn't really like it on me. I just prefer cool toned colors and darker colors on my nails.
I'm not sorry I got this because it's such a beautiful glitter and I'm sure I'm gonna use it for layering and nail art in the future. I'm still sorry I didn't get Twinkle Lights. That is my biggest regret for this collection. Here's a recap of the other Let it Snow polishes I've swatched and reviewed:
