Little Red Riding Hood Sparkly Red Nails

I am really excited to present to you this little beauty of nail polish. As part  of their brand new 'crystal' collection, Superdrug owned brand 2true has  released 4 gorgeous ultra sparkly and ultra festive nail polishes. Ditch the 'crystal'  name, they scream 'party' all over, so much so that I have decided to rename this  collection, the 'party' collection as I feel it's much more appropriate and more fun.

For those of you new to 2true polishes, these eyeko lookalike bottles polishes are exclusively sold at Superdrug, for the price of £1.99 and they have a permanent offer,  whereby you can get 3 polishes for £4.99. Thank goodness my store only had the red polish  in as otherwise, I think I would have bought the whole blooming lot.


For you today, I have stunning shade 2, which is described on the website as VAMPISH RED and about 10 billion pictures. I just couldn’t narrow it down any further. The shine and the richness of the finely milled sparkle/glitter inside is  absolutely incredible and I can't believe how pretty it is.

Application was ok. Not a fairy tale, but not your worst nightmare also. The  polish is a liiiittle bit too thick for my liking but other than that this polish is a little stunner. On the budget side of 'party red' polishes, I still would prefer ELF red velvet, but the advantage with 2true vampish red is that you can find in any Superdrug, whereas Elf is a bit faffy and you need to place an order online and before you know it you end up with £30 in your basket because they have an offer on.

What I like the most about this polish is that it almost gives the illusion of a very  rich glitter polish, but without the grittiness and removal nightmare of a real  glitter polish (I am looking at you Barry M). The finish is very smooth and removal  was a doddle. Had the formula been a little bit thinner, 'Vampish Red'  would have  easily beaten my ultimate favourite nail polish from 2true, the gorgeous lime green. For now Vampish sits comfortably at spot no.2

This polish would be ideal to compliment a vampire, a little red devil, a little red riding hood etc halloween outfit on a  budget. Make sure to apply a base (I had some staining with the lime green polish from  2true), make a point not to overload the brush during application and you'll love it. Vampish Red is a limited edition. I would imagine it'd be gone after Christmas so grab it now while you can.


Oh did I say it was £1.99? s-weet!

p.s
I wouldn't wish to be fussy, but a sparkly green nail polish would have been a lovely addition to the collection my wallet is not complaining though.

The red is the knock out shade for me, I don't want the other shades just this perfect festive red! oh I agree a green shade instead of say the turquoise would have been wonderful xx

I love that red. The sparklyness, the fact that you said it isn't miserable to remove, all of it. Wow.

I have mysterious turquoise and it's gorgeous :D I was tempted by the purple too, only in the shop it looked way more fuchsia than purple?! In any case, the red looks beautiful on you :D xxx
