I love the color red. I admit it’s my favorite. I have red shoes, red bags, red lipstick, red dresses, red coats and jackets. Red jewelry abounds in my collection. I LOVE red. It’s such a bold color. Every time I wear it, it makes me feel strong. I even have red furniture. I have a small red leather side table, a red toile chair and ottoman, and a vintage style red corded phone in my living room.
Because I have so much red in my wardrobe and accessories, I try and steer away from reds in my nail polish collection. Or so I thought. I took inventory yesterday and realized that I have 15 polishes that would qualify as red/berry toned.
I suppose because I love red, I can’t get away from it. Oddly enough, I don’t find that I wear it that often. I just pick up the occasional bottle of red because it’s pretty. I had 3 of these shades before I started painting my nails regularly in November last year. I kept them specifically for pedicures. I would never have thought of wearing them on my hands. Now, I love wearing a bold color on my fingers. Oddly enough, red isn’t always bold enough. I love dark blues, bright yellows, punchy oranges, vibrant greens and shiny metallics.
I think it’s funny that I have 15 shades of red that I will never use up. I suppose I can always try.
Do you have a overwhelming shade of nail polish in your collection? I’d love to hear about it.
