Ruby Pumps - blinged out

Hey Kids!
Would you believe that this is the first time I've worn China Glaze Ruby Pumps full nail?  Having experienced this polish for myself, I can now understand why this polish is in so many top 20 lists!
I wore Ruby Pumps as my NOTD on Saturday, and amped up the bling with some layering on Sunday.

My camera captured the over all metallic-ness of the glitter in Ruby Pumps in these next pics.
Make them bigger to get a good look!


































































The "blackening" you see at the cuticle and sidewalls was done with a layer of Nfu-Oh 51. I have a deep red-purple jelly franken that would have done a better job, but at the time I did not think of it. I don't like how the flakes/glitter in 51 show green in some pictures.
I applied Color Club Mini in Abracadabra (a super chunky, flashy, sparkley glitter in an orange jelly base), heavy at the tips and dragged it halfway up the nail. 2 coats of Seche made this nice and smooth!

I didn't think Ruby Pumps could be improved upon but you've done it.  This is fabulous!  Your nails look like there in flames.  This would also look fantastic in the Fall.
