Manicure Monday: China Glaze Ruby Pumps9:00 AM
Hey everyone! Today I have another holiday-perfect manicure to share with you that has consistently been one of my favorites through the years. In my eyes, every woman should have a perfect sparkly red to wear during the festive season and this is my highest recommendation: China Glaze Ruby Pumps.
It's one of those classic polishes that every company tries to replicate, but Ruby Pumps is the original and does it best. Trust me, I've tried so many dupes that left me dissatisfied every time. If you are looking for a red that is truly flattering on everyone, definitely try this one out!

This medium red is a true crimson with glowing red glitter which catches the light beautifully. I know not everyone is a glitter polish lover like I am, but Ruby Pumps has a special place in my heart as one of my favorite polishes all year round, not just Christmas time, because the balance is just right. Not too much glitter, not too sheer, not too dark or light, and certainly not too boring.
Here I used a base of CND Stickey Base with 3 coats of China Glaze Ruby Pumps, topped with Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat to give it a slick, reflective surface. I do recommend at least 3 coats since the extra layering really brings out the glitter particles in the polish and will give it an opaque, slightly jelly finish.
Check out how drop-dead gorgeous the glitter specks are on the polish brush! This brush is not flat or rounded, but I never seem to have any problems with application using China Glaze polishes.
If you are looking for the perfect red to wear to those holiday parties, definitely check out Ruby Pumps over other sparkly reds. Others just don't compare to the depth this beautiful polish has! It's my #1 recommendation this season! :)
