Sparkly red manicure

Hi everyone!

After a week of neutral nails I desperately needed more color... so I went with red and sparkles :)

indoors, no flash

On all of my nails I first painted two coats of OPI Natural Base and after that one coat of Illamasqua Throb, a beautiful medium dark red that is a dream to apply: perfect formula, no dragging and opaque in one coat!! Also its finish is very glossy so top coat isn't necessary.

To add a little sparkle I applied one coat of Illamasqua Untold on my middle and ring finger, a polish with a gazillion tiny red glitters in a clear base that seems to be set on fire when the sunlight hits it. Of course there has to be sunshine to see that, but my flash helped out a little to show the glitters without nice weather. Untold dried a bit gritty so I finished with a generous coat of Seche Vite to even out everything.

These are the polishes I used:

What color do you pick when you want something not-neutral?
