A few months back, I ordered a few nail polishes from Illamasqua while they were having free international shipping promotion. Two of them are Untold and Throb pictured above. Illamasqua Nail Varnishes have never disappointed me and I am so glad I picked up Throb.
Untold is a red glitter suspended in clear base. To wear it on its own, I suggest applying 3 coats for full coverage. Throb is a blood-red in cream finish, very opaque – one of the most pigmented colours from the bunch, can easily pass off as a one-coater if one has no time for the second.
I intend to wear this combination for Chinese New Year. Red doesn’t get any brighter than this and it immediately reminded me of The Wizard Of Oz – Dorothy’s shoes thus the title of this post.

What is your favourite red combination and what are you planning to have on your nails for Chinese New Year?
