Last week wore I Love Nail Polish’s Birefringence, and as much as I gushed about it and although I was sad to take it off…cause let’s admit it, it’s a fantastic nail polish, and
Challenge Red-y is a blue toned from special made for a promotion for Special K made by Nicole by OPI. The Shine Brighter campaign was introduced to encourage women to show off their confidence through color. Based on how many codes you were able to accumulate you would depends on the number of polishes you receive the entire collection include My Sol Shines Brighter and Live in the Momentum. I ate a LOT of Special K products this summer, so much so that now it’s the only cold cereal that I ate…. but thanks to my cereal eating I was able to get 6 polishes.
This crème polish and formula was smooth and very easy to apply. There was a bit of VPL after two coats…. so depending on how you apply it make take 2-3 coats. This polish is better described as a candy apple red , when you picture those old Hollywood vixens and movie stars this is the color they would be wearing. I felt super glamorous wearing this polish… I loved it so much I put it on my toes as well. You can’t go wrong with a red polish, and this one works really well on people with tan and dark toned skin.
Even though I love red, it’s not a color that I wear often, and now that my nails have gotten longer I think the red is a bit more noticeable. I had a lady at Wal-Mart walk up to me and ask me if my nail were real when I replied that they were , she scrunched up her face, looked at my nails and “politely” told me that I shouldn’t wear that color because hey make me nails look fake. I’m sure I won’t be the first one to get a rude, opinionated comment about my nails…certainly I won’t be the last. (sorry for the lack up clean-up… I was super excited about this polish)
As soon as I sat this nail polish on the bed Tsuki wouldn’t stop playing with it I want to say that she was in a playful mood (but she’s always like that ), but not only that she wanted to do some sort of acrobatics…. she’s such a show off… like me, she knows a good thing when she sees it. And she knows that red looks as good on he r as it does on my … so because of the color, the easy application and the fact that some felt the need to tell my my nails looked fake I can’t help but give Challenge Red-y a 10 out of 10.
