December and particularly Christmas is the time of the year when I reach for red nail polish quite often. It's such a classic, glamour colour and just perfect for the Holidays, just like the red lipstick. I have a few red nail polishes in my collection and I wasn't planning on buying any more but then I came across the Models Own stand in Superdrug and saw the range of the Diamond Luxe nail polishes (apparently they contain real diamond dust) and just couldn't leave without the shade called Marquise Maroon :)
For me it's a Christmas in a nail polish!
Marquise Maroon is a deep true red colour with tiny speckles of red and golden shimmer. The consistency of this nail polish is a bit of like liquid jelly but the pigmentation is great and two coats are plenty enough for an opaque and even finish. It stays well on the nails, I've been wearing it for three days already and there is not a sign of chipping!
It's a gorgeous shade and I'm sure I will be wearing it for Christmas this year :)
Do you tend to wear red nail polish during Christmas time?
