China Glaze Ring in the Red

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:
