Valentine's Day Nails | Our Favourite Red Nail Polishes

Today's post is a quick one on our favourite red nail polishes as it's Valentine's Day on Saturday. Red is my favourite colour to wear on my nails and they're are a lot of red polishes to choose from. As a complete nail polish addict, I've got thousands of polishes but here are my favourites!

Rimmel Salon Pro Nail Polish in Mars - Ever since last year, I've absolutely loved the Salon Pro collection by Rimmel. It's long lasting, easy to apply with the bigger brush and doesn't take too long to dry which is vital for me. I always end up smudging my nails but not with this polish. It's really shiney too so you don't even need topcoat! This red shade is my favourite and has been my go-to red for absolutely ages now! For the perfect red you only need two coats.

L'Oreal Colour Riche Nail Varnish in Femme Fatal - I used to love buying these L'oreal polishes but I haven't bought one for a while now. However, I do love this red in the collection. It doesn't chip and the shine is gorgeous! Almost gel like. The brush isn't as big as the Rimmel one. I really don't like the size of this bottle though! It's so small but it is good quality.

OPI Nail Lacquer - I don't know the name of this shade but it's a really nice red. I do have to say that I don't reach for this one as much as the others. For such an expensive polish it chips quite a lot. I don't think I'd ever pay this much for a nail polish again as the quality is no better than a highstreet polish. Then again, the pricey things in life always make nice treats :)

Max Factor Colour Effects Mini Nail Polish - I think this is called Ruby Tuesday and it's a lovely bright red and lighter than the other shades in this post. I love this red. It looks a little like MAC's lipstick Ruby Woo for the nails! For such a mini bottle it is over-priced at £4.99!

WAH London in Love My Team - I wore this polish on Christmas day and it's so gorgeous! The first thing I noticed was how fast this polish dried! It's a true red in my eyes and I'm really impressed with WAH London on a whole. It's a great nail brand and their nail art kit is absolutely amazing! You can read about WAH's nail art kit here (x)!

I hope you all have a lovely valentines day! I'll be watching horror movies instead :) What is your favourite red polish?

  30. For some reason I don't like the way true red nail polishes looks on me, but I think if I were to find the right tone of red I would give it a shot :) I think darker reds or red-orange nail polishes are fun to wear though! Lovely post, ladies!

  44. OPI really chips for you? It's one of the only nail-polishes that don't chip quickly for me! Nail polish is generally the only thing I don't mind spending money on so I love Dior & Chanel nail polish because it easily stays for 5/6 days. So worth spending a tad more on!
