Hello gentle readers.
It's the weekend. And I am up far too early and gulping coffee and trying to clear the cobwebs from my brain. So, I figured it is time to write a post here. Because brain fog and blogging go hand in hand, you know.
Today's swatch (I am wearing just clear base coat, at the moment) is Color Club Resort to Red from their Fall 2010 Untamed Luxury Collection. This is a beautiful dark red jelly base packed with micro shimmer. It is similar to OPI An Affair in Red Square in concept and colour, but Resort to Red is deeper in tone and shades a bit more burgundy. This polish is lovely and rich and velvety in look and feel. I dig it.
Photos were shot in my lightbox under my OttLight.
Color Club Resort to Red has a lovely formula. It is well behaved, complies with all requests to sit down where placed and is smooth and dreamy. I may have used my cleanup brush once when applying this swatch. Gotta love that! This polish self levels very nicely. It is a tad brushstroke-y. 'Tis the nature of the beast with a polish of this ilk but careful application and a good top coat minimizes that effect very nicely. Dry time is a tiny bit slow but not slow enough to make you late for the opera.
Would I have purchased this polish were it standing alone on a shelf? Probably not. Not because it isn't lovely, it is just that I have several very similar polishes in my collection, already. If you are looking for a beautiful, rich shimmering red polish, this one could be a lovely addition to your polish family. It is available at various e-tailers and you can probably find it in beauty supplies that carry Color Club and on sites like Amazon and E-Bay.
Thank you so much for popping in and spending a little of your Saturday here with me. Have yourself a terrific weekend and may your polish never bubble.
