Fierce Friday: Deborah Lippmann Ruby Red Slippers

Fierce Fridays is something fun I want to do for my blog. What I'm going to do is post a fierce polish, stamp-icure or whatever I might come across that I believe is to die for. Now this polish is nowhere near new and has been on a lot of blogs, but I had to have it. I have been dragging my feet on purchasing Deborah Lippmann (because its pretty expensive $16-$20 per bottle), so I chose 4 amazing ones when I was finally ready to and this was one! Today I have Ruby Red Slippers which is fabulous! It has a black jelly base with red regular and hexagonal glitter! The sun was out so I swatched it and ran outside to take pictures so that you can see how amazing it looks on my skin tone in natural light!

It took 3 thin coats to reach opacity. I've seen others say that it was a difficult paint, but I thought it was amazing for it to be a jelly polish that has so much hexi glitter. The formula wasn't thick at all, it doesn't dry to a rough or bumpy finish like some jam packed glitters (its smooth so I used a regular top coat), but you should definitely be careful around the cuticles. Dry time was pretty good which surprised me because jellies usually take a bit more time in my opinion (OPI Guy Meets Gal-veston), but I don't have many jellies so I will find out along the way. Here are a few more pictures from different angles for you:

I hope you enjoyed my Fierce Friday babes!
