Xtra special, huh? I thought about this challenge for a bit now, not really sure how to interpret it. I mean, we’ve had unusual recently, so I wanted to think differently with Xtra special.
I decided to pick a polish that is extra special to me: Color Club’s “Ruby Slippers”. You probably know it: It’s a red jelly with red microglitter, and it’s related to other polishes with names after red footwear: Ruby Pumps, Ruby Red Slippers, you name it. Scooby dooby ruby booby newbie gooby red slippers. And so on. The Color Club version is my ultimate favourite. I got it from my boyfriend a long, long while ago, which obviously makes it more special to me. I love that he supports my hobby the way he does.
So Ruby Slippers is the base for this mani – which I made for the challenge today. Here it is:
It’s two coats of Ruby Slippers, a layer of topcoat, and when that was dry I taped my nails and painted the black with Golden Rose Matte #12, a plain black one coater. A little red nail stud completed the look.
Just to prove that Ruby Slippers is special to me, I am going to show you what it looks like on its own. Here’s two easy coats and a layer of topcoat. I adore this polish; it’s perfect!
Now, how would you girls have interpreted this theme? What would your extra special nails have looked like?
You should definitely check out what the other girls did this week too! I can’t wait myself!
