With the changing of the seasons we’ve been doing alot of talking about nail polish trends for fall 2012 around here. As much as I love trends there is something so chic about a classic red manicure and it never goes out of style. I have quite a few red polishes in my collection that fall in that classic red category but I’m always looking for that inexpensive perfect red that will work on literally everyone’s skintone has a good formula and wears well. I may just have found that polish.
I Red a Good Book is a neutral red creme that falls ever so slightly into the dark red category. I love this kind of color for fall and winter though it really is a year around appropriate red.
The formula is wonderful. I used just two coats in my swatches. I’m a huge fan of the brushes from the megalast line. They’re wide and make applying polish easy. For several pictures of the brush check out my post on I Need a Refresh-Mint.
In my post on 5 polishes every girl should own I talked about how difficult it can be to find an appropriate red polish for any given skintone. It really is just like finding the perfect red lipstick. What’s great about I Red a Good Book is that it’s a neutral red. There’s no need to worry about whether it has yellow or blue undertones. No matter your skintone this red will work. I promise!
If you are looking for a slightly more pink neutral red wet n wild has a good option for that as well from their Wild Shine line. You can check that out here.
As always, there are more swatches below the jump.
I’ve become a HUGE fan of the wet n wild megalast line. If you have any favorites I should try let me know!
