I’ve rambled about Red Carpet Manicure in dribs and drabs over the past few months. I love it. It’s awesome (a quick rave incase you missed its appearances). Though today I thought I’d give one of the shades in the range a bit more attention. Red Carpet Reddy – see what they did there? – is actually the shade that comes included in the Starter Kit and is one I snubbed until festive season when I deemed it a more than appropriate colour to brush on.
The colour is a doozy. A straight-up red, not too warm nor too cool and it fits the bill as a ‘I mean business’ shade. Two thick coats do the trick, though a third one ensures full opaqueness. It lasts a good 10 days before things start to look chippy and then I tend to leave it another five by making full use of my pockets before I finally give in and admit it’s time for removal.
So the ‘RCM Hall of Colour Fame’ is up to two shades: I Own the Runway and Red Carpet Reddy, but what’s next? That’s the one downside of such a range is that the line-up is seriously lacking in non-shimmer laden neutral shades. Any suggestions that I may have missed in my search? Suggest away.
