This may be the most perfect holiday polish ever. No, really. It actually matches the ornaments on my tree!
You may remember way back in September I reviewed deborah lippmann Pseudo Silk Kimono. It was from the (then) new Silk Shade collection from deborah lippmann. Red Silk Boxers is also part of that collection. I’ve been dragging my heels on trying it simple because when I looked at the bottle I immediately thought HOLIDAY. I’m glad I waited.
Red Silk Boxers is, as deborah lippmann describes it, a come-hither crimson that dries to a silky matte finish. I adore the finish of this polish. It’s matte but it’s got a slight sheen to it.
The formula on these can be a tad tricky. As with all matte finish nail polishes the polish dries quickly. I used 3 thin coats in my swatches and was happy with the result. If you have trouble getting the polish to look even apply one coat of a matte top coat after the second coat.
While I do prefer Psuedo Silk Kamono, Red Silk Boxers is a great holiday polish that’s a bit unexpected.
There are swatches under the jump!
