I love a vampy red. Essie Rock Star Skinny (Winter 2008) is a maroon with very fine shimmer:
Picture taken in natural light. This applied very smoothly in two coats. I really like this color; it’s so rich and velvety on the nail. The slight shimmer makes it look more interesting I paired this with an unnnamed L.A. Girl Flare black with silver glitter on my toes.
