Manicure Monday: Indian Red

It's an extended long weekend for us since we don't have classes last Fri and event today. Today marks Mt. Pinatubo's anniversary and our governor declared it a s holiday. Good thing because I wasn't able to paint my nails yesterday and just finished this earlier. 


I was actually looking for simple nail art to do but failed since I am seeing complicated ones and I can't allot more time in painting my nails because I have this huge paperwork going on so I just grabbed this glitter polish from OMG's Gems Collection which I have bought and swatched months ago. It's nice and lively and I feel that the color helps me work fast. I'm kind of cramming for the paperwork actually plus I have a lot of blog posts to finish. 


I swatched it twice and it gives off a redish look. It's actually more close to a mauve color I think. I topped it off with a top coat to avoid it chipping, I've blogged before that my sister was complaining on the pink shade on this collection as it chips after a day even with a top coat. Let's see what happens with this on my nails. By the way, this was also shot after I immediately finished painting my nails.   


I'm not really sure why there's a hint of the "Indian" word on it's name. I guess it has something to do with their culture, color, or some historical event. Anyway, I love how the look was on my nails. It's almost the third week of school so I am slowly showing my students some colors. I guess, the next few weeks will be a puzzle for them on what color will I wear next. :) 

What do you think of the color? I hope this will last for a long time and it won't chipped easily. If it does, then I have reason to also rest my nails for a few days and keep it nourish. 

Suggest more colors you want me to polish on my nails next. Would love to hear your thoughts always! XOXO ♥

  2. I love the color and it even is shimmery on its own. Indian red reminds me of a kind of ink, hehe!

  14. I think it was named Indian Red because the tint resembles the red dot placed in the forehead of Indian women. hehehe
