Revlon Firefox & Stylish Blogger Award

Good afternoon. Today I'm wearing my Revlon Matte Suede polish in Firefox. You might have noticed that I'm not a big red polish wearer; I prefer blues, greens and purples. For some reason I always feel like there is a spotlight on my nails when I wear red and it makes me self-conscious. I could wear a glitterbomb or the brightest neon and not bat an eyelash, but for whatever reason, red gives me a slightly uncomfortable feeling. Maybe it's just me?
Revlon Firefox, 1 coat.
Revlon Firefox 2 coats (clear polish sandwiched in between the 2 layers.)
Firefox with Essie To Dry For Top Coat
I like the matte suede finish, but the shimmer that shows through when the topcoat is added is amazing. (Enlarge the photo's to see what I mean!) Lately, I have been having problems with my mani peeling off. Literally half of the polish would peel right off like an orange peel. As I said in the photo caption, I layered a clear polish (Color Club Vivid Top Coat) between the two layers of Firefox to hopefully help keep my mani in place.

To finish, Kassie from Unique-Desire nominated me with the Stylish Blogger Awrd. Thank you Kassie, you're so sweet! :)

  3. I also don't wear red polish a lot, but sometimes it's nice to try different shades of it :)
    I really like the one you used, and I absolutely prefer it with top coat! The shimmer is beautiful :D

  4. That looks so good with topcoat! I skipped this because I felt like I had too many reds already (I, too, rarely wear them) but now I'm rethinking that.

  6. I totally agree with the wearing red thing. It just feels so intense. I really like the way it looks but they make me so self conscious!

  7. I'm glad that there are others who are (as Rebecca called it) "red-shy", I thought I might be alone in that.

    KarenD, I've seen Firefox in the core Revlon collection at a couple locations, so it's probably still available where you live. ;) The shimmer is beautiful!

  9. Do you know if Revlon makes this color in a gloss? I'm looking for something with a polish - without having to add a top coat.
