As I wanted the red to stand out, I picked Essie Barbados Blue for the base colour. A frosty ice-blue nail polish, this colour does not suit my skin tone at all and the streaky formula was difficult to work with. I needed four coats for this opacity and, even so, you can see the streak marks if you look closely enough.
The poppy red is Bourjois So Laque in shade #25 or Rouge Casino. The formula of the So Laque polishes is a dream compared to Barbados Blue. The black is my favourite China Glaze shade - Liquid Leather.
