[China Glaze] Free Bear Hugs

I love bears and so I could not resist Free Bear Hugs, which is, moreover, in the Rouge Noir or Nuit 1947 range, a dark cherry red with a slightly jelly-leaning formula.

[Dior] Mystère (991)

Mystère is a dark (burgundy) red, darker than it seems in the bottle, and probably containing the slightest hint of maroon.

Mystère

Two coats for opaqueness and more depth regarding a deep dark and vampy red; this tends to have a jelly-ish finish. So shown below is two coats.

[Essie] Leading Lady

This has been the signature shade of Essie’s Holiday Collection of last year, Leading Lady. It’s a berry red with a jelly base containing glitter particles of different sizes.

Two coats. Leading Lady actually reminds me of the varnish I’m wearing right now, China Glaze Ruby Pumps (although the latter is more red-based and has smaller glitter bits.)
