Reader’s Choice Monday ~ Stripes with China Glaze Ruby Pumps

Hey dolls! The winner of last week’s poll was stripes with 54% of the votes. I decided to go with a festive candy cane look using striping tape. China Glaze Ruby Pumps, a red jelly packed with red glitter, was used as the main color. Most of you know that I’m not a red fan, so I didn’t buy this shade all on my own. My stepdaughter picked it out for me last summer. Since she will be here soon for Christmas, now is a perfect time to wear it. Ruby Pumps’ formula was easy to use and opaque with two coats. For the double accent nail, I started with a base of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On. I then applied the striping tape diagonally and a coat of Ruby Pumps.

Simple, cute, and just a little bit festive is how I would describe this look. Hopefully the little one will like it.

For this week’s poll, I have three Deborah Lippmann polishes that I recently got for you to chose from. Please take a second to vote!

    Pretty, I need to pull out my Ruby Pumps. My vote is for all 3 try to incorporate a design with them. :)

      Thanks! You definitely should pull Ruby Pumps out. Don’t be trying to challenge my limited skills by asking me to use all three. lol

    I also need to get my Ruby Pumps out. I wore my old fav OPI Dear Santa this past week, but Ruby Pumps is another top fav for holiday with me.

      This is definitely the time for shimmery reds. :)

    I was planning to do Ruby Pumps next week. So, this confirms that decision. I love this combo. You are not a red fan? How come? This shade looks good on you.

      I would love to see what you come up with. I’ve just never been a fan of how red looks on me. Thanks for the compliments! Stop trying to challenge me by saying use all 3!!! lol

    Every time I see Ruby Pumps I fall in love with it even more. I can’t even find any China Glaze polish here in Alaska. You did a beautiful job on this candy cane manicure.

      Thanks love! No China Glaze in Alaska??? That is not a good thing!

        Tell me about it! Maybe I’ve been looking in the wrong places.

          You don’t have Sally Beauty supply in Alaska?

            Not in Wasilla. I’d probably find it in Anchorage…somewhere XD
