Do you know of a sexier polish color than this? DO YOU? Ugh, it's just too gorgeous. To my knowledge, this polish came out with Nubar's Risque Reds collection, which was composed of eight red polishes (two cremes, six shimmers). My friend Michelle gifted me the whole collection because she knows I love red. And Torrid Red reminds me why I love it. The application was perfect on this, too. It was almost a one-coater. Gor-geous.
Sadly I didn't get a picture of me in my dress, but I just got it from the ModCloth 70% off sale. When I saw it on the site the art historian in me knew that I had to have it. The top is covered with little cherubs, you see. The Italian word for cherubs is putti (putto in the singular), pronounced "poo-tee." Please just say putti out loud to yourself. I own a garment covered in putti. Now, because I live in a completely unrealistic world peopled almost entirely by art historians, we all found this hilarious. All day I was getting people saying, "Stephanie, I can see your putti" or "Oh sorry Stephanie, I just leaned on your putti." We got many good laughs. This isn't just a dress, it's a conversation piece. Here's the top half.
Next time I wear it I'll actually have someone take a picture of me so you can see the whole thing. It's just fabulous.
Today begins my spring break, so yay! This will be my dilemma tonight:
See, I really should be doing research on Bernini terracottas, but my boyfriend just bought me the March Vogue. What to do. What. To. Do.
Okay, that's all. Any positive or negative thoughts on Nubar Torrid Red? I think it's impossibly glamorous and sexy. I hope you all have great weekends!
