Yet Another Red Nail Polish
If only this baby had shown up three weeks ago when I was sharing my favourite red nail polishes for autumn/winter because it for sure would have made the cut! New-in from Sally Hansen are the Patent Gloss Nail Polishes* (€8.95), a four-strong edit of slick-finish shades and this one, Moto, is my current go-to.
Formulated to replicate the high-gloss finish of patent leather, the Patent Gloss Nail Polishes are undeniably the most strikingly shiny polishes I've tried (I actually think that Patent Gloss Nail Lacquers would have been a more appropriate name!).
Moto is a true, blue-based red; perfect for this time of year, and the above picture shows one coat and no top coat. The Patent Gloss shades, along with the Velvet Textures that were released simultaneously, are billed as special effects polishes so, don't expect them to wear well. I get about three days out of Moto with a top coat and probably two at a push without. However, it is such a brightening, striking shade, I have no issue with that - especially as the brand made no false claims about longevity. 10/10, highly recommend. This will be my Christmas polish of choice.
