We know by now nails aren’t quite my forte so when I received the Revlon Nail Enamel in Red Hot Tamale, I merely sat and stared at it for a long while. They weren’t kidding naming it “red hot”!
So I left it for a while on my shelf, stealing looks at it now and again but never daring to paint my fingernails with them. I worried it would look too “slutty” and for some reason I was reminded of the late Florence Griffith Joyner – there my age is showing isn’t it? 😉 If you remember her you might remember her flamboyant running outfits and long painted nails.
One night, in a fit of boredom, I decided to paint my toe nails Red Hot Tamale. Truly, I did not quite know what to expect, but wow! I was quite blown away!
Bright nail polish really does it for toe nails, and makes wearing sandals a treat. Just for this alone, I’m glad to be living where its sunny all year round because Red Hot Tamale is such a bright cheery color. 2 coats gave me blood red nails that have lasted about 2 weeks now without too much damage. I’m impressed.
I’m still hesitant to use it on my fingernails, but I think this is going to be one colour I’ll be painting my toes with for a long long while 🙂 I’ve always had a soft spot for Revlon nail polishes – they were my first ever polishes and over the years, I’d used the quick dry version and matte versions too.
A bottle of Revlon nail enamel retails for RM19.90. Not too bad, methinks as its a great smooth formula that is opaque, bright and dries quickly. The last is important for me because I’m impatient.
Pros: Bright colour, Does not fade quickly, Dries relatively quickly, affordable
Cons: This color is too bright for nails unless you are the brave sort!
The last red I had on my toes was OPI I’m not a waitress. If you want to sport blood red nails whether on fingers or toes, you could do worse than use Revlon’s Red Hot Tamale!
What’s your favourite nail enamel colour for fingers or toes? I prefer something light and shimmery on my nails because it does not show up chips so quickly but I’m prepared to go bold and bright on my toes. You?
