The red adventure part two: Rapsodi 326

Hello again! Second post for today featuring another red. This time with a happy ending! 

A week ago I was browsing some shops in the city just to see if there was any new stuff in. I saw this new brand that was very very cheap (less than 1$ per bottle) and then it hit me. I should look for a blue-toned red since the price was right for me to experiment and there were a lot of red shades to choose from. I chose one that looked ok in the light of the shop (although you can never know with these). I was very pleased with the outcome!

This red is so yummy! I'm not a red wearer myself but I crave one from time to time. This is the perfect blue-toned red crelly. It has the opacity of a creme with the amazing shine of a jelly. The sun pictures are all without top coat and look at that shine! I just love how this looks on me! 


There is a drawback of this polish however, namely the durability. It shows tip wear after one day of wear and it needs top coat badly to make it last longer. I don't mind because it's not a color I wear often and the price is right. It's almost as getting it for free.

I'm pretty happy with this red and I'm sure I won't need another one in my collection anytime soon. It's nice to know that if I want to have red on my nails, I have the perfect shade in my collection.

    1. This is very bright too. Just not the type that looks orange.

  3. Just one question...Does it dry fast, this Rapsodi brand? That's very important to me...and which brands are cheap & dry fast, could you recommend some?

    1. This is the only one that I tried from this brand and it did dry very fast. Another cheap brand that dries very very fast is Gabrini. I would say the Golden Rose ones (Paris line with the pyramid bottle) also dry fast and they are as cheap as Gabrini and easier to find.

    2. Yeah, Gabrini is good, cheap & dries fast...Not satisfied with any Golden Rose stuff, though, it takes ages to dry, especially if you put 2 or more coats on to make the color stronger...
