Can anyone recommend a Red Glitter Nail polish

My eyes are aching from scrolling through Google and still haven’t found what I’m looking for.

It needs to be really sparkly - with red glitter, no silver or gold.

I’m not keen on shimmer or frosted nail polishes - there needs to be visible glitter and lots of it. The deeper the red, the better.

Even a shellac or gellish recommendation would be fab...

China Glaze Ruby Pumps is the most perfect red glitter polish ever.

And it's cheap.

Thanks Jesus! I did see that one, but a reviewer said it looks more shimmery than glittery when applied to nails - would you agree? It certainly looks lovely and glittery in the bottle...

Oh no it's definitely glittery.

This is an accurate representation of how it looks in real life. It's so gorgeous. Make sure you use a really good gloss topcoat for maximum sparkle.

Will look through my collection for other options.

The perfect thread!

cnd shellac do two glittery reds - a limited edition called "Ruby Ritz" and another called "Garnet Glamour".
They're both lovely, first is a proper pillar box red, and the other is a little bit darker, but still gorgeous, and they're both very sparkly!

Zola PixieDust in Chyna. Very glittery. Has a sugar texture finish. It’s a deep red, and the texture gives a real depth to the glitter, especially with a couple of coats of top coat.

Ruby Pumps is to me the most perfect red of all time.

But I bought a Barry M one a couple of years ago that is full on fire engine red glitter.

Personally I would just by a bright one of appropriate glitteriness and then layer over a black base for a deeper darker red effect. Makes a big difference.

Some great suggestions - thank you!
I had never thought to use a black base to achieve a deeper red - brilliant suggestion! I do have a black polish so I’ll definitely try that out smile

I have Ruby from Avon which is a mineral crush one, but don’t know how to post pics so you can see.

Does the China glaze one dry smooth or grainy/sugar texture finish?
