Stocking Skittle Manicure

Hello everyone,

in my last New In My Stash post I told you I had finally picked up Fishnet Stockings from Essie. It has been on my wish list for quite some time, but I just couldn't get my hands on it. Luckily, here in Germany it was re-released as part of their Russian Roulette collection and this time I could not pass on this nail polish. It is a perfect true deep red that goes well with my pale skin tone. I find that blue toned reds suit me much better than orange-y reds. Anyways, to make this color a bit more "work appropriate", I decided to pair it with Sally Hansen Stocking Nude from their last Designer collection as well as Butter London's Tarte With A Heart, which has been sitting in my untrieds drawer forever, whoops.

On my index and pinkie nail I am wearing Fishnet Stockings on its own. For my middle finger I went with a drag marble and my ring finger is Tarte With A Heart over Stocking Nude.
As a top coat I used Sally Hansen InstaDry, which gave me the worst shrinkage ever. Ok, Seche Vite works just as bad for me, but my hunt for the perfect fast dry top coat is a whole different story (that I might have to tell you soon). Interestingly, this time it made my manicure shrink only at the cuticle, not at the free edge. So please excuse the larger gap this time ;)

I will definitely be rocking this red a lot this Fall and Winter! What is your go to shade of red for the darker season?

Thanks for stopping by, have a nice day!
