This is Lippmann Collection's Ruby Red Slippers. Initially only available as part of a Ménage à trois of lip-smacking glitteriffic polishes commemorating the company's 10th anniversary. Now they're available seperately and this baby threw itself at me, I swear. What a little hussy.
Lippmann's website calls this "Dorothy's Shimmering Ruby." Let me tell you something about your friend, and mine, Dot. After returning to Kansas following her trek around wherever the hell she was, she got bored. After all the adventures she'd had with her various organ-deficient friends, she felt a little stifled back on the farm. So her gingham skirt got shorter and her ruby red heels got a little higher, and this is what her slippers look like nowadays, girls. Not your mama's ruby reds. Behold.
Ruby Red Slippers is a super-sheer black base with loads of both teeny round, and larger hex glitter in a rich red. This picture shows 3 coats. I thought 4 was going a little far, though I may next time. I wanna go all the way with this one. *wink*
