I've had to stick with reds for a few weeks, and will for a few weeks more because of the show I'm currently in. I thought it would be boring, but it's actually been kind of fun to "get to know" all the different reds I've amassed.
So far I've sported (and haven't taken pics, so these are not my nails)
(someone just posted a pic of this one a page back or so)
I think next up will be Sally Hansen Red Carpet (attached below), which is an old favorite, and considered a Ruby Pumps dupe.
It's been fun, but I'm a little bummed to missed out on anything really autumn-y or Halloween-y. Really ready for some dark wintery colors.

I redid my nails this morning. I was playing around with the back and white last night, but just didn't like it. I've realized that I just don't like white polish as anything but an accent. I felt like I had White-Out all over my hands. lol
Fingers are now Sally Hansen in Violet VOOM! with accents nails in Wet N Wild Glitz.
No pics because no mater what light or flash I use the color looks blue and it's not blue it's a true purple. **stomps off to grumble some more**

Jess, I think you could do reds. You just have to find the right undertones. I can do blue reds better than orange ones, though my hands are more forgiving than if I was wearing a shirt or lipstick.
I cannot do any red clothing or lipstick. Not at all. Unless I'm really tan and since I don't spend time baking my skin anymore it just doesn't happen. I think what I'll do is order some Zoya color spoons in reds to see if I can get away with any. I definitely couldn't pull off Sookie. Luckily my DD can do red so it doesn;t go to waste.
