Rimmel: Lava Red + SH Star Opal: Rose Gold Opal

Lava Red is another one of those vampys that look cool in the bottle...a brownish color with dark red shimmer....but once on the nail, it looks black. This is 2 coats of Lava Red with one coat of Rose Gold Opal. RGO is very sheer, so you really can't see too much difference.

This is with two coats of Rose Gold Opal. It brings out a purple shade.

It's still kinda boring though, so I may add a layer of glitter or something tomorrow...

Thanks for looking!


  1. Very pretty! Funny how there are some polishes out there that look great in the bottle, but are just too dark when applied! This looks awesome with the Rose Gold Opal over it!

  2. I am gonna get the Rimmel one :) Love it!

  3. This is just the kind of post I was doing a search for, since I'm wearing a similar color, a deep burgundy with a bit of brown shimmer. It's too bad this Opal isn't that thrilling on this color. I ended up using Crystal Opal and that's not all that successful either. It's turned it more pinky purple, with an odd green cast in some lights. Almost the same as what you got. So I slapped SH Diamond Strength in Diamonds over it too. Woooooo bling!
