Onana inspired nails

Well, Saturday night wouldn't be Saturday night without a nails of the day post don't you think? Onana inspired nails? Let me explain... I borrowed this nail polish from a friend: The problem is that it's a very old nail polish from Urban Decay. The bit where the name would be written has fallen so I don't know its name. unknown name > what's my name from rihanna > onana
*badum pssh*

A bit of research on internet and some help from my twitter chums, we think this might be called 'kiss' from Urban Decay but I couldn't swear that it's its real name. Application could have been better, the formula was a bit on the gloopy side but it was manageable, which is quite amazing considering how old this polish is. 'Onana''s colour is stunning: some very chunky sparkly red with a hint of blue running through it. I love this polish: it's in between a micro shimmer red and an all out glitter red, without all the removal drama a real glitter polish would cause.

Would I pay for this polish full price and new? Nah, I already have 2 polishes very similar: red velvet from Elf at £1.50 which was an absolute bargain, and a little cute mini polish from opi part of a halloween present.
Do you own this polish? do you know its name? let me know :)

Lovely colour, I would say kiss is the closest I've seen to that colour too.

No.7 Speed Dry in Cherry Tang is very similar, although very sheer, it's a steal at £2 with the £5 off voucher and looks opaque if you use a nude base! One of my favourites xxx

This looks lovely :D
I'd recommend No7s 'Sugar' as if you pay with a voucher and buy something else at the same time, you'll get another voucher ready to buy 'Spice'; I should've thought of that before I'd left Boots! Hope this helps ^^ x
