Barry M Ruby Glitter is a black and pink mix

At first glance, I thought the glitter was red, but upon closer inspection I realized that, as the name implies, it is a ruby pink.  I didn't like the tiny black glitters at times, because they looked like I had ants on my nails.  The other black ones were ok, and looked sophisticated.  The overall look is really nice, but I'm wondering, other than grey, what else could I pair this with?  Not sure if you guys agree with me, but I think the color options for the base color are very limiting with a glitter combination such as this one.  Regarding Color Club, it never ceases to amaze me, this brand is very underrated.  For the longest time I was looking for a true grey crelly (creme/jelly finish) like the one shown here, and I finally found it.

  1. I like it. It has a very goth feel to it. I think it may be worth trying it over light blue or perwinkle - Butter London Sprog comes to mind. Or a spring green or even a hot blue based deep pink or a taupe maybe.

  2. Wow!!! This mani is so pretty. I super love the color combos and the design. I find it so classy and unique. Perfect mani for any occasion. Love it!

  3. I am so in love with this polish. I can't believe I have only just recently discovered it. It's perfect for autumn! I used your photo to demonstrate a swatch for my readers and credited you, hope you don't mind :)

    1. It's ok as long as you credit (and I saw you did)! thank you! I'm flattered :)
