Scarlett is a red base filled with red shimmer, red, silver and purple micro glitter and scattered holographic particles. The load of purple and pink micro glitter actually turns the color into crimson red and adds an incredible depth to Scarlett:
I applied two coats of Picture Polish Scarlett over my regular Base Coat. The formula is perfect - it is everything you ever wanted a polish to be. Dry time was on the quick side and the finish was shiny and smooth. Given the overcast weather I could not really catch the holo effect but what you see in the above pictures is what Scarlett looks in normal winter weather - spectacular - no?
I cannot remember where I read that reference but it was suggested that Picture Polish Scarlett might be worth a comparison with A England Rose Bower - well, read it and obeyed:
Ring: A England Rose Bower
Index: A England Briar Rose (I threw that one in for good measure)
Summary: While I would say that they belong into the same range of reds they clearly are only distantly related. And while Rose Bower comes close with regard to the base color, the finish is very different as it doesn't hold Scarlett's shimmer. I hope this comparison is helpful to those of you interested...
Final thoughts: I am so into reds and pinks lately and bordeaux and purple lately so I am sure you can fathom my excitement over Scarlett!!! It is discreetly spectacular and I just can envision Scarlett wearing this red along with her green velvet dress made of the curtains, can't you?
I ordered Picture Polish Scarlett with Pshiiit Boutique.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
