My Favorite Red Nail Polishes


Seeing as Valentine's Day is today and you've probably been inundated with Valentine's Day makeup looks, I decided I'd do something a bit different and talk about my favorite red nail polished for V-Day! I've never entirely understood the premise behind wearing a red lip on Valentine's day because although it is festive, it's not exactly practical if you're going to go out on a date with a special someone and you're going to kiss. Therefore, I'd prefer to paint my nails red to at least be somewhat festive.

The Bright Red - My favorite bright red nail polish is OPI Big Apple Red, a gorgeous bright cherry that reminds me of nail polish women would probably wear in the 1950s. Part of the reason why I love this red so much is because it is very opaque so you could just opt for one coat!

The Black Cherry Red - If you have been reading my blog for awhile you will know how much I love dark nail polish, and more specifically dark reds and burgundies. The Sephora Formula X Polish in Obsessed definitely fits the bill if you want a deep blackened cherry, and this shade is super glossy if you're into that whole gel-nail look.

The Classic Red - This is my most recent red nail polish discovery but is quickly becoming my favorite of the bunch. The Revlon Gel Envy polish in Red Heart is a beautiful classic medium red and much like the Formula X polish, it has a very glossy and long-lasting formula.

The Orangey Red - Last but certainly not least in the Rimmel Salon Pro nail polish in Hip Hop, which is a gorgeous poppy red. I love how bright this shade is but it surprisingly goes with a lot of different outfits and as an added bonus the formula is impeccable, the brush is super wide (which makes application super quick), and its super cheap coming in around $3!

What's your favorite red nail polish?
