First of all, I ran out of stockpiled posts, so I'm actually posting this the same day I applied this - and there's no sun in my area today (for once). The last photo is under a desk lamp.
I don't know how old my bottle is, but I know I've had Dorothy Who? for at least a year, if not longer, and I had Ruby Pumps WAY before that. My bottle REEKS, y'all. It actually reminded me of Kleancolors, it smelled so bad.
Anyway, this application was awesome - not too runny, not too thick, no bald spots, nothing. Cleanup didn't even suck that bad - sure, I had some glitter left on my skin but it wasn't superglued there like some other glitters tend to be.
I actually debated between this and Nubar Fire Sparkle, which is untried, but I just didn't want to mess with that much topcoat today. I thought about Orly Star Spangled, which is usually my go-to Rangers Red, but decided I've already shown that a couple of times on the blog, so I went with Ruby Pumps. If I do a playoff manicure I'll probably go with Nubars, but if the Rangers don't pull their heads out soon it won't matter. :)
