This series is also going to be very helpful because I have a big chore coming up: My husband's job sometimes requires that he travel and soon we are heading to California until next year! It's a long trip this time, but I'm definitely looking forward to it because it's where my friends and family all live. I love being close to them again, but this year I have a, uh, problem. Traveling with my entire stash isn't possible! I have a large OPI travel case that I am going to completely fill with just polish, but I have to narrow it down to what really must come with me!
It's so hard! Hopefully, going through my favorites will help me decide what to bring!
Another thing that I love about Red Zin is the formula and brush combo. I didn't snap a picture of the brush for you unfortunately, but it is a wide, flat brush with curved sides. It isn't for everyone, but it is for me! It's a high quality version of this shape too and the polish applies perfectly smooth with it. I can generally paint my nails in two swipes with it (one careful swipe on my pinky!) and get a pretty clean, rounded edge.
This color also wears spectacularly on me. The Complete Salon Manicure commercials always claim that these polishes can be worn on their own, without base or top coat, but I have never tried it. Instead, I top it with SV. These pictures are pre-top coat because I was layering glitter over this. It took me two coats to get this look.
And like I mentioned, I do have a few dupes or very near dupes of this shade, so it's not super special, but it is nonetheless my favorite shade of red. It's fairly easy to find something similar. I love it because on the off chance I do want to wear red, I have my perfect color.
Thanks for reading!
