A Red?? Again?!

Yes, it's true! I have on a red! Again! Who am I?! Although it isn't really much of a deviation from my last red. It's actually a dupe! Today I have on LA Girl Rockstar Addict, a wine jelly with crushed gold flakies.... just like Sally Hansen Fireberry Red! Would you look at that? So this isn't so much a normal post, but more of a comparison.

One coat.
Index and ring fingers: LA Girl Addict.
Middle and pinkie fingers: Sally Hansen Fireberry red


Addict is a little lighter in color with bigger, more visible gold flakies.
FbR is deeper, but not as blingy.

So can you guess who won my showdown??



........... Addict!! Because it's just more sparkly, and I'm basically a magpie. I put Addict on right after I took the comparison swatches off, but I totally forgot to take a picture of it before putting something on top. But trust me, it's gorgeous now too:]

  2. Haha, I love that you describe yourself as a magpie--I think I am the same way when it comes to sparkles! I like the more visible glitter in Addict as well. Red and gold are such a classic combo. Also, I've nominated you for the Cute Blog Award! :)
