Revlon Ruby Ribbon

Hey there!  Merry Christmas!

I know I have been totally out of touch, but I've been working like a mad dog at work and I've been too tired to post.  I haven't even done any Christmas shopping, and only two days till Christmas... oh well, it was kind of like this last year too.

Anyhow.   Today, I have a matte suede polish to show you called Ruby Ribbon, #863, by Revlon.  I bought this last year and it sat in my untried pile till now.... crazy.  Below is two coats with no top coat and it dries pretty fast.

The glitter is China Glaze's Party Hearty, from Christmas 2011.   Ruby Ribbon, its a deep, deep ruby color with some silver shimmer in it....sometimes the shimmer kind of makes it look dusty.

Above is with a shiny top coat - Revlon's quick dry.  I think I like it better shiny.

It's okay... not too exciting.

Well, that's it for now.  I somehow have to get back into the swing of things here in nail polish world.

Jessica - Crocodile Crackle

Tonight I have a cool croc-crackle polish to show you from Jessica.  This is called Brown Croc and it is one coat over a sheer called Beautiful.  The two polishes come together as a kit, I found this at Marshalls. 

Above is my left hand and has one THICK coat of brown croc which makes the cracks bigger/wider.

Now here is my right hand with one THIN coat.  This to me looks more crocodile like.  I know I have major tip wear here.  I wore this for three days.  I normally take photos right after painting but lately I've been lazy... and totally thrown off schedule.

The instructions say to wait for the first color to dry before applying the crackle polish...which I did.  I don't know what would happen if you didn't wait... and I noticed this took a bit longer to crack than regular crackle polish too.  When I started to wonder if I got a bad bottle, it started cracking..... cool huh?

Here's what the bottles in the kit look like.

That's it for now, until next time.....
