My Top Red Nail Polishes for Valentinesday ...

Hi guys ! Hope you had a fun weekend. This weekend we celebrated my Gran's birthday and had a blast. (Just had way to much cake the last two weeks ... hee hee hee ) 

So with Friday being Valentinesday .. I will be showing some of my favourite red nail polishes with you guys. To be honest .. I'm not the biggest fan of rocking red nails personally, but red nails are perfect for Valentinesday ..  so in no particular order .. Here are my 12 favourites...

All of the polishes are two coats with topcoat (the textures without topcoat of course)

1.China Glaze Cranberry Splash  
China Glaze Cranberry Splash is a metallic shimmery red. 
2. China Glaze With Love -
This is a fire red polish with the slightest orange tint to it. 
3. Loreal Rouge Pin Up
A classic red nail polish . I love how this is a deeper red polish 
4. China Glaze Don't Make Me Wine
This is a dark magenta coloured polish.. But in most light is looks like a deep wine red colour. As I mentioned when I posted the swatch of this colour.. This will make gorgeous date nails. 


5. OPI The Impossible -
I love textured polish and this is no exception. The colour is amazing, the polish won't chip easily and the texture gives it an added edgy look . This is more of a fuchsia toned red .
6. OPI Magazine Cover Mouse
This is another red liquid sand with pink and golden shimmer. Swoon... This one is really really gorgeous. 
7. Tip Top Cherries in The Snow -
A classic fire red blue toned nail polish.
8. Essence Me & My Lover
This is another texture polish , this one is the same tone as OPI Magazine Mouse cover with a golden shimmer. And it's under R20 ... So if you're not a big fan of red polishes.. This will make a not to expensive date night nail polish. And it's texture. *Swoon ...*
9. Revlon Cherry Crush -
A gorgeous wine red nail polish with the most gorgeous shimmer. 
10. Revlon Red -
Another classic red. This one now comes in their mini nail enamel versions .. So as I mentioned if you want to try it out.. The smaller one would really be a fun addition.
11. Tip Top Nail Addict Boston Lights
This is another of my favourite favourite reds... gorgeous wine red colour with shimmer.
12. Tip Top Traffic Lights
This is a metallic polish with a stunning shimmer. I adore this colour for nail art . 

So I hope this helps you out a bit. What is YOUR favourite red nail polish to wear ? How was your weekend ?

  1. I really love the idea of this post Lynn, I enjoyed reading the comparisons, and I'd say my favourites are: don't make me wine, cherry crush and boston lights. some make your nails look longer, the brighter ones look fab on you. it's an evergreen classic, and though my mother wears red all the freaking time, so i grew the idea that it is banal and almost never wear it despite i love the color in general and how i look in it, you made me change my mind here.
    i have always thought that red would make my hands look longer and thinnier and make my veins stand out. do you feel the same when you wear it?

    1. I feel red makes me feel to grown up on my nails.. So I tend to skip them except for an accent nail perhaps.

  8. You've chosen beautiful shades of red. I have to say my faves are the textured polishes and the china glaze one's :)

    I feel the same about red nail polish and don't often wear it- haha, makes me look too mature. I prefer fun, bright exciting colours to make me feel like a child haha :)

    1. I totally agree.. I dont mind red in a texture but wearing red is a little bit too mature for my liking too.
