My Favorite Reds

August 27, 2019

Ah red nail polish. A love of mine that can never be tarnished. Like coffee and Vogue. Bright red, orangey-red, brick red, you name it I have a shade of it. What's funny is that O.P.I is known for their red nail polishes, yet I didn't choose one that is "iconic" like Big Apple Red or I'm Not Really A Waitress. Probably because those are such staple O.P.I colors and I do respect them, but there are a few other red nail polishes I have lost sleep wondering whether a salon had them.

O.P.I Meet My Deco-Rator
This shade is from one of my favorite collections, Breakfast at Tiffany's. I wish I would've bought all these colors back when this collection was still around. My nail salon has all these colors in gel so I'm not completely lost. This is a poppy red and in some lighting it almost looks orange, but its a beautiful red. What's funny is I actually gifted this color to a friend but needed to borrow it for a photo shoot and have yet to return it. I just need to find her another bottle haha. This color is so lovely in gel too.

O.P.I I Stop for Red
This is an older O.P.I color from the 2015 Brights Collection. This is another beautiful red. Bright! It has an orange tint to it but very much a bright red. It definitely blends right in with the red shades in the O.P.I family, but trust me I spent a lot of time picking this red out.

O.P.I I Love You Just Be Cuosco
This brick red is from O.P.I Peru. Truthfully I'm not a big brick red person, but this one is just so pretty! It applies smoothly. It has a beautiful sheen to it.

O.P.I Adam Said "It's New Year's, Eve"
This is a beautiful, bright apple red. I love the name its such a funny play on words, no surprise for O.P.I. It also happens to be one of my favorite Infinite Shine colors.

O.P.I Got the Mean Reds
Another shade from the Breakfast at Tiffany's collection but such a classic I swear and not because I say, "I got the mean reds" everyday. My mom has said that this is her favorite red on me.
Barielle Nails Restorative Hand Cream*
Besides the essential red nail polish hand cream is a must for me. I have been loving this kind from Barielle. This isn't an overly scented hand cream and is great for both men and women. The coconut oil in it replenishes your nails and smells lovely!

  1. Those are stunning red polishes! I got the breakfast for Tiffany OPI Mani month collection for Christmas when it came out and I love using all the colours in it! You're right it has some fab reds! :) My fave OPI red has to be a metallic one though - I can't remember the name right now though!

    Hope that your week is going well so far :)

  2. These are all great reds. My first red OPI was "i'm not really a waitress."

    Effortlessly Sophisticated

  3. When I used to paint my nails I loved doing them in red. All of these shades look beautiful! The more true red ones are my favorite.
