Seeing Red!!!

So yesterday, I think I had a little too much fun swatching that I decided to do it again today with some of my reds.  I have a SLEW of Zoya's reds and I thought today on this perfectly gloomy day, I would dive in. 
Tosca...I bought this red because this is the name of one of my favorite operas.  LOL  The red is more on the pinkish side and it has a hint of gold shimmer. It went on very smooth and in 2 coats.  I love it, but not as much as a couple of the other colors.  I know when the sun starts shining on the regular and I get a tan, I shall love it more.

Next up...Delilah.  It is a nice red jelly with sparkles.  I don't even know if my camera caught the full effect.  I was a tad disappointed because it took like 4 coats to get the look that I wanted, but once I got the look...I loved it.  I think it is my favorite out of this group.

Kamilah, nice frosty and pinky red.  LOL  I didn't care for it much, but it is really beautiful.

To break up the super shiny thing, I found Posh in the stash.  It is a beautiful matte red from the Matte Velvet Collection.  It is even prettier when there is a top coat on it.

My second favorite out of the reds is Isla...makes me want to sing La Isla Bonita.  LOL  It reminds me of the Nubar's Torrid Red that I swatched yesterday.  Wow...

Last of today's Seeing Red....Chelsea.  I bought it because that is one of my favorite sections of NY.  LOL  It is a great orange frosty red.  This is more of my mom's flavor and I am going to drop it in her purse when I catch up with her.  LOL  She loves a good red and a good frost.  LOL

So happy Tuesday....oh...and my last pic is yesterday's manicure.  Gargantuan Green Grape by OPI and Sweet P by Hard Candy.  Oh so perfect!  I had to help out one of my mother's friends who teaches high school and the girls were asking me what color I had on.  LOL  Gotta love the teens!
