Mani Monday : Orly Star Spangled Nail Polish

Red nails attract me the most. Be it on me or on other people. There's something about red polishes that make nails and hands look striking, sexy and sophisticated. Yes, add up all the S adjectives you can ever come up with. :)

So, here's one of my favorites! Orly's Star Spangled nail polish.

PRICE : Php 350 in the Philippines / Around $4 in the USA

SHADE : Star Spangled

Star Spangled is a really pretty shade of red with tiny red glitters. It's in deep red color that looks really flattering on fair and even in dark skin. What makes this polish special is the tiny glitter dust that makes your nails really shiny! It's even prettier when you finish it off with a glossy top coat! 

Here's how it looks when applied on nails :

What I like :
  • Pigmented
  • Makes hands appear lighter 
  • The shade is rather sexy  (unlike other overly-striking red polsihes)
  • Orly is available in the Philippines
What I don't like :
  • Pricey
  • Doesn't last too long (mine lasted for 4 days)
  • I noticed that some Orly nail polishes leave yellow stain on nails

If you like red nail polishes but tired of the usual hot-red shades in the market, then you should try this.  I love how it's also in the shade of wine red, which is really hot these days.

It also makes hands appear lighter and brighter, which is a plus point especially for a morena person like me.

Do you like red nail polishes? Which one is your favorite?
