Lady In Red

There is a special place in my heart for red sequins. <3 Way back when, in the Dark Ages (1997), I wore a red sequined dress to my Senior prom. Red is definitely my color, and I looked fab in my dress, if I do say so myself. :) That night was special, and filled with many wonderful memories of friends and times gone by.

Today I have for you a mani that, for me, evokes fond memories of that late Spring evening with my boyfriend (now husband) as we danced to "Lady In Red" by Chris DeBurgh, and it seemed we were the only people in the room.

I started with 2 coats of OPI Wocka Wocka from the Holiday 2011 Muppets collection. It's my go-to red polish - OPI makes some fabulous reds, no? I love the shimmer in this cerise shade.

Then I added 2 coats of Jordana Glitters in Sequin, a clear jelly base with fine red microglitter and larger hexagonal "circus glitter" throughout.

Wocka Wocka applied beautifully, and I had no placement problems with the glitter at all.  I'm so pleased with this look! This is definitely a twist on the standard red mani, and it's so shiny and sparkly!

What do you think? What is your "go-to" red polish? How do you dress it up?
