China Glaze - Ruby Pumps

Today's red glitter polish is none other than China Glaze - Ruby Pumps which is the loveliest red glitter polish ever? I know I say that a lot but how can you blame me? This red is the bomb.

It is as fierce as it is stunning and from the name of the polish itself, you can kinda tell what is characteristics are. Judge for yourself:


It's a wonderful red that doesn't look gaudy at all. The glitter is embedded in the polish so no grittiness at all! I love that about Ruby Pumps. It's almost a jelly but not quite.

Also, it is THE perfect holiday nail color. It's the perfect red for Christmas nails. You can use it for nail art or you can just wear it as it is and it'll look fab either way. Christmas is in 3 months but I still make excuses to wear this color all year round. In fact, I'm wearing Ruby Pumps right now haha.

The first coat of Ruby Pumps goes on half-sheer so you definitely need two coats. Apply top coat and you're good to go. I've tried using a matte top coat over Ruby Pumps and the effect is quite fascinating. The flatness of the red glitter is unique so you might want to try that.

Bad cuticles, sorry!
Ruby Pumps isn't really flashy in sunlight though so don't expect it to be one of those sparkly glitters. Its beauty lies in its subtleties, really.

Go pick it up at your local Sally Beauty Store. Or order it online.

Let me know if this is the kind of red you dive for the moment you see it in stores.

Thanks for reading!
