Well, I chose this color for my Friday National Wear Red Day mani, then I decided since the day is about heart disease awareness, a few hearts would not be out of place - so I think it really could stand in for Valentine's Day also, with the red & gold color combination.
Base color is China Glaze Thunderbird, which is a perfect red, from this past fall's Retro Diva collection. I just wanted a little bit more, so I used my dotting tool to create hearts on my thumb & ring fingers with OPI Dazzled by Gold (and boy am I starting to wish I had a backup of this LE polish):
It was a really good match for my red boots:
And I also decided to do a comparison swatch vs. Zoya Isla. Here is Isla on index & ring, Thunderbird on middle & pinky:
They are pretty close, but I think Thunderbird is a little darker (especially in person), so I'm not willing to call them dupes - I'm glad I have both because this is such a perfect tone of red for me =) Thanks for reading.
