Okay, all you red lovers- are you ready? Today I am posting swatches of all the red creme polishes I own. Some of you may wonder why I am posting swatches of nail colors that debuted years ago. The reason for this is that I have seen some of these swatches- on lighter skin tones. I have often wanted to know what a color might look like against my own skin tone, not to mention the fact that various nail shades can pull different undertones depending on the person wearing it (and you will see this happen when you scroll down to the photos). I also believe that it can’t hurt to add another swatch to the batch of nail polish porn that’s available on the web (and don’t tell my grandma that I used the word “porn”). So to assist all the tan skinned folks out there, here are the swatches.
I divided my reds into two categories: creme and shimmer/glitter. This makes it is easier for me to swatch them, and easier for people to find in Internet searches. I will swatch my blues, purples, greens, browns, golds, pinks, and neutrals sometime soon, but I may not categorize them by finish the way I did with the reds. Just warning you. I will have to figure out if I have so many of each color that they have to be divided as such. I am also including red-toned burgundies in today’s category.
