The Devil Made Me Do It!

Hi Readers!  Awhile ago I got a delicious dark vampy red by Revlon called Devil's Lure.  It's very dark but instead of being a dark creme like Vampire State Building it's a jelly.  It also has teeny eeny little pink glitters in it but those are too visible when you stamp on it lol!  I wanted to do another Valentine's Day type mani for you all today without being one of those cutesy Valentine's Day manis that are all over the place right now.  I decided to go a gorgeous rich, baroque style by mixing the dark vampy red of Devil's Lure with gold.  The gold I chose is Finger Paints Key To My Art.  I also dusted off my reinforcement tabs to try another half moon mani.  
Here's the final result
Looks who's in the background!!! Baxter!  He doesn't seem too interested in this mani lol!!

I love this view of it
Here it is with flash
Here's a bottle shot of Revlon's Devil's Lure.  I love these dark reds!
If you look close at the bottle you can see some of those teeny pink glitters in there. To get this look I did a base of Key To My Art.  I let it dry completely and then placed the reinforcement tabs on the bottom of my nails and did 2 coats of Revlon's Devil's Lure.  I topped with Seche Vite and when dry I stamped using Sally Hansen Gold Chrome pen and used RA112.

Here's a pic of the polishes I used
All in all I like this mani for a Valentine's Day look.  I'm not thrilled with how the reinforcement tabs work with my nails.  Next time I may just try the french manicure guide and see if I like that better.

Got any plans for Valentine's Day readers???  I've never really been on the receiving end of Valentine's Day because my birthday is on the 12th so I've always had birthday celebration but not so much Valentine's Day celebration lol!  Oh the curse of sharing a birthday with Abe Lincoln!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!


  1. I LOVE this look :) I love half moon manis, but have never tried it with stamping.. I use french mani guides for my half moons, but those hole reinforcements would be better for me I think!

    Valentines day isn't really a big thing here, so don't have any plans.. It's just a normal day.. haha..

  2. Yet another Half Moon mani that makes me want to take back my statement about not liking them... Beautiful!!!

  3. Thanks ladies! I find I am really loving both the Ruffian and Half Moon mani look! So far I haven't done anything french tip! I might have to put that on the docket for later on! Swaafie no Valentine's Day plans here either I might do a marathon of Moonlight and Mick St John though so I have someone to drool over!
