Reds for Christmas

I can´t think of a better color for Christmas than red :) I while ago I showed you some creme reds in a comparison, so If you like creme reds more, have a look here. Today I want to show you some of my favourite sparkle reds. So the polishes I have here are Zoya Lisa (L), OPI Ali´s Big Break (ABB) which was the only three coater out of these, OPI Smitten With Mittens (SWS) and Zoya Sarah (S). So hard to say which one I like most! Maybe Zoya Lisa, it is so bright :)


I thought it would be fun to try these matte. It is a nice change and your mani looks different. I used my favourite matte top coat, which is ManGlaze Matte-Astrophe. Look at the result (yes, there is some cracle, I applied it on wet polish)!


Now which one do you like most? And is it better matte or not? :) I would love to hear what is your favourite red for this time of the year.

  1. I like Zoya Lisa best, Sarah also looks great, and I think they look great both shiny and matte! The Matte version brings out the color better I think!

  9. They're all gorgeous !
    I think the one I love the less is ABB, and my fave is definitely Sarah. They are also pretty matte, but I really love the sparkles in the "normal" versions :)

  15. Great post! I like both, the shiny & the matte versions, but if I had to choose I'd always go for shine :-) Smitten with Mittens is my favourite from your picture.
    My favourite red polish is Chanel Fire. It's bright, but still very wearable. MAC Concubine would be my choice for a darker red.

  16. I love The Zoya the best. The matte gives it a more muted look. :)

  17. OPI, OPI :-) Aneb Smittens with mittens vyhrává a jeho zmatněná verze je dokonalá!

  19. Matting my manicures has become a new love of mine. I'm so surprised by that because I love lots of glitter and sparkle. I'm going to say I like Sarah the best.

  20. I prefer Smitten With Mittens as a non-matte version.
    But my favourite red christams polish is definitely Ruby Pumps by China Glaze: http://ulkaspulka.blogspot.com/2010/11/notd-china-glaze-ruby-pumps.html
    To me this is the most beautiful red glitter polish! :)
