Milani ~ Red in another red and black mani


Milani ~ Red
Clear base with red glitter

...and a couple of other polishes!

I just love red and black together! I usually say that purple is my favourite colour nail polish, but I am not sure that’s entirely true. Red is not my favourite either, but red and black together, now that’s just yummy!!

So here’s another red and black mani for ya!

I started out with black on two nails and red on three. I used Essence “Black is Back”, which is my favourite black crème – and a one coater too; and H&M’s “Berry Love”, which is a red crème. That’s usually also a one coater, but I have some green spots on my nails from a previous mani, that peeked through the red, so I gave it two coats to cover that up. I’m looking forward to my nails growing so I can cut the green spots off, LOL!

Anyway – here’s the base for my mani:

  
Then I used Milani’s “Red” over the black crème. Red is such a boring name for this awesome blingy glitter – it could have had an awesome name instead, like umm… “Bond Babe” or “Bling it on!”. But no; Red it was. No wonder that the marketing guy was fired from OPI’s team and replaced with a girl! :D Just kidding!!


I stamped on the red nails, using a black no name stamping polish and the stamping plate KD3, which is a fauxnad plate, but it works brilliantly!

I couldn’t find my faithful Poshé top coat, so I topped this with NYC fast drying top coat instead. And that little b*tch pulled on my designs, grrr!! Fortunately it shows more on the pics than it did in real life :) 


(In the meantime I found my Poshé – she was exactly where I left her…)

Do you like black and red manis? Or which colours do you return to?

  1. I love that burnt orange - almost gives a halloween-vibe. You know I'm not much of a glitter person, but this one is beautiful...

    1. I think we should send them suggestions about what they should call their polishes in future! :D

  4. Lovely work.

    i Do love red and black manis, but I must admit, I tend to go to Purple almost every time. When I don't Red is next. :-)

    1. That's funny that we tend to chose one colour as a favourite. When I look in my stash, I can see that I tend to go blue :)
