50 Shades of Sunday ~ Russian Red by Mac

Posted on: August 26, 2012

Every Sunday I dedicate wearing a polish I own, that for whatever reason, I have never worn before. This is a way I can make sure to wear all my polish eventually. I usually buy polish 2or 3 at a time, and some of them get pushed to the back of the cabinet. This way I will not leave a polish out.

This Sunday I am wearing Russian Red by Mac
. This is a gorgeous red polish. I think it is the perfect red. Every girl needs a perfect red polish in her collection, and this would be a good one.

20120826-150821.jpg. This was given to me by my friend Indie as a birthday present. I wore it once in a half and half manicure I’d done with the Russian Red and an Orange polish.

20120826-151001.jpg. I love this polish so much I will be putting it in my Top 5 list. The formula is great, it goes on so smooth, flawless, dries like glass. I used a fast dry top coat but you don’t really need one because it is so shiny on its own. I painted 2 thin coats. The first coat was a little streaky, which I find that a lot with a good quality polish. The second coat goes on smooth and evens everything out. I think when people first paint a polish they want the first coat to be perfect so they add more polish. When you do that, after the polish dries it will pool and bubble, so to keep that from happening, I paint using 2 thin coats. The result is a flawless glass like finish that is gorgeous. I can’t stop looking at it.

20120826-151414.jpg. This seems to be a pretty fancy polish, but I have been wearing it for 2 days now and I am loving more every day. Thank you so much Indie for getting this for me. Please check out Indie’s You Tube channel and she also has a blog, listed in my blog roll, where she does awesome reviews on different products. She will review make up, eyeshadow, shampoo, mascaras, blush, ect…. The thing that is different about Indie’s reviews is she is very thorough, leaves no stone un turned. Once she reviews a product you will have all your questions answered. Love that about her. one of my very favorite You Tube videos EVER is Indie and her daughter doing a Mother’s Day makeover. It is the funniest thing to watch, but so touching to see the love between these two and the patience only a mother can possess. I hope you check it out. You can see it here.

💅Thanks so much for stopping by💅

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
