– Essie Nail Polish in Lacquered Up
Think of this polish as your dessert red. Equal parts appetizing and vivacious, this creamy shade can be worn all year round. The high-gloss finish makes it pop even more—and is also resistant to chipping and fading. All you need are two coats of this pigmented red for a truly dazzling manicure.
– Christian Louboutin Nail Colour in Rouge Louboutin
Discover the infamous sole’s red shade encapsulated in a unique bottle, fashioned after the shoemaker’s Ballerina Ultima heel. Although it looks like a piece of art, inside you’ll find a precise brush that delivers even color. Apply a primer before brushing on one or two coats for a super glossy finish.
