Week 6 - Red Coat Tuesday

35 comments

Hiya guys. Due to the terrible weather, I had no work yet again today. Hooray for short work-weeks! I was not expecting it whatsoever, but it ended up being a nice surprise when I woke up this morning. It's Tuesday today and that only means one thing around here... Pretty Little Liars time. I know some of you guys aren't a fan of the show, but who isn't a fan of red manis? Got to love the sleek classic shade. I actually was having a hard time coming up with something to do for today's mani, until I noticed this beauty sitting on my desk by its lonesome. Say hello to Gemma by Bliss Polish.


I ended up winning this beauty in a nail art contest hosted by the sweetest Patty Collins on Instagram about a month ago. Even though I didn't win the main prize, she decided to give the runner up and myself a polish of our choice. I had heard nothing, but amazing things about this particular polish so I had to add it to my collection.


It looks stunning from any angle and compliments my skin tone so well. I couldn't just leave this stunner alone, so I decided to get out some of my new plates. I was really feeling flowers for some reason and using Bristol from Bundle Monster's Downtown Collection I stamped using my Pueen plate 93.


Did I forget to mention that Gemma is actually a thermal? Yes! It transitions from burgundy when cold to a bright red when warm.


You are probably thinking something along the lines of "uhhh... where's the stamping" at this point. I actually would like to call this the disappearing stamp trick, haha.


What would you like to see next Red Coat Tuesday? Any ladies tuning in to the new episode of Pretty Little Liars tonight?

Don't forget to check out the other ladies participating in today's weekly challenge. And, as always, if you happen to be wearing red don't hesitate to join us.

  12. Loooove the richness of this color, and it does indeed compliment your skin tone very well! The thermal transition is pretty cool! I've never had a polish that does that before.

    1. Thermals are a must for any polish lover. It's a shame it doesn't have a long shelf life.
