Ruby Wing - Kitten Heels
Check out this hot hot hot pink! You may recall seeing Kitten Heels by Ruby Wing on Glazed Over before, and that's because I got this in a Birchbox back in February. I absolutely love hot pink on my nails in the summer, so I pulled this beauty out and gave it a go.
As you can probably tell, I have acrylic nails on which I've cut and filed down, but you can still sort of see where they've grown out despite all my attempts at filing. On that note -anyone have any good tips for removal that won't completely tear away at my nails?
Anyway, this is the first time I've ever used a polish by Ruby Wing and I have to say I'm impressed. Kitten Heels is a neon hot pink creme polish. I'm wearing two coats topped off with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat. Application was flawless - it applied easily without bubbles or inconsistency.
Kitten Heels is supposed to be a color shifting polish. Indoors it's supposed to be pink, and outside it's supposed to shift to an orangey-red. I don't know if it has something to do with the acrylic nails I painted over, but it has not changed for me at all. It's been pink the whole time...which I'm okay with because this color is such a beaut!
Overall, I really like this polish! I don't care that it doesn't shift colors - that's kind of gimmicky (IMHO) anyway. The flawless application and bright opaque color make this a true gem! Ruby Wing nail polish can be purchased here for $10 a bottle. Check it out!
