Maybelline Mystery Red...

After the crackle disaster, I wanted to go back to something simple and classic, so I went with red. I always think red is an underrated nail color. People always say it's really old-school and boring, but I think red is always beautiful, classic, and elegant.

The red I chose was a Maybelline Express Finish polish that I got way back when, and the sticker with the name has fallen off ages ago, so I wasn't sure what the name of this polish is. I remembered it being something like Hawaii Red, but I Googled it and couldn't find anything. This is a long shot, but if someone randomly happens knows the color of this polish, please be a darling and let me know! :)

Lately, my pictures, including these, have been really bad, sorry. They really haven't been representing each polish well.

Maybelline ___ Red is a basic medium-dark blue-based red with shimmer. It's less warm than shown in the pictures. Like all Maybelline Express Finish polishes, each coat went on really smooth. Opaque in two coats, but I did three because I thought the color would *pop* more. It didn't.

I'm a few days behind on my posting; I've added some nail art to this mani since taking the photos and I am SO loving it!! I'll be putting up the post soon :D.

Little thing to smile for today: going back to the classics :)

  1. This is a pretty color, but I'm not in love with it. I love reds; I don't think they're boring at all! But I'm picky because I only like the slightly dark and somewhat vampy reds. :P

    I hope you find out the name of this. Maybe it's just me, but I'd get frustrated not knowing. LOL

    Yeah, I'm not too crazy about this color either...I agree with you; vampy reds definitely look better! More of a mysterious-elegant-sexy vibe, lol ;P. I'm glad to know not everyone thinks red is boring :D. And yes, I'm almost going crazy from not knowing the name :P! I think I'm going to try Googling some more, lol! ;)
