I was going to wear black and red to an event… was getting ready to change my mani …. and talking to my mom on IM. I thought about something like Cut the Cake …. and when I showed her someone’s swatch online, she suggested layering over a red. So that’s what I did. Since Rimmel Stiletto is such a great neutral red creme, I went with that.
I thought the Orly would just kind of give a sheer wash over the red, but it did not turn out as I imagined at all! It turned the red into a sparkly pink – entirely. Now, all that disappointment aside, I do think it’s a beautiful combination, albeit not what I expected.
