Throw a Little Hot Rod Red in Your Manicure

by Bionic Beauty on 11.Aug.2014 · 2 comments

Any Iron Man fans out there?

Tony Stark: “Tell you what. Throw a little Hot Rod Red in there.”
JARVIS: “Yes… that should help you keep a low profile.”

Even if you aren’t an Stark Industries or Avengers junkie, you can probably recognize the value in finding the perfect red nail polish.  It’s taken me over a decade, but I finally found my must-have red!

On My Nails:

  • Gelish gel polish base coat
  • Gelish polish in Hot Rod Red
  • Gelish top coat

Hot Rod Red is a bright, traditional red creme. No shimmer, glitter, or other sparkly bits. Simple and beautiful. I got all three polishes at Sally Beauty Supply during one of their buy 1, get 1 free sales a few weeks back which makes them super thrifty, and makes my wallet even happier.

On My Hands & Cuticles:
YBF Skincare’s Private Reserve Energy Blend Antioxidant Oil.  Yes, it was made for the face, but it makes an absolutely amazing cuticle oil and hand moisturizer!  Plus you can get a sample size for only 4 bucks or a trial size (I keep this size in my purse!) for $11.75. Woot woot!

What’s your favorite red polish? Who’s your favorite Avengers character? Or… what do you use to keep your cuticles soft n’ happy?

Happy Mani Monday… and watch out for the super genius in a flying metal suit,

My favorite so far…except for the dark purple. Or maybe the ReallyBrightPink! from a while back. No, this one is definitely it. But maybe a bit of gold accent? 😀

From my perspective, a new nail color is a nice surprise to see. I love the bold colors you choose!

Hi ThatGuy,
I really love that dark purple too… and the light blue and the super bright neon pink! I’ve got to get a photograph of the neon pink glowing under to UV light to post up here. Quite awesome!

Thanks for commenting!! 🙂
