China Glaze Ruby Pumps

August 18, 2012

This is my newest nail love, it's Ruby Pumps by China Glaze. I got this for about $4 on and I am kicking myself that I didn't order more China Glaze polishes. I will eventually order more, but shipping from that site isn't cheap.

This polish is a translucent red with fine red glitter. It's a really subtle glitter nail polish, and from afar it gives the nails more of a shimmery effect.

It was hard to capture the depth that this nail polish gives, but the closest I could get was in the photo below. At the base of the nail the polish looks slightly darker and the red glitter looks really sparkly - that is what this polish looks like in real life! I love this polish, it is beautiful.

The formula of this is good, you get a good coverage with 2 coats, I think 3 coats would be unnecessary. The only thing that is a little annoying is that the glitter gives a slight bumpy texture to the nails (see photo below). You can make this look more shiny with a top coat, but if you wanted a very shiny smooth finish, you may need two coats of top coat.


  1. That's a gorgeous jelly red! I think it'd look really nice layered over a creamier red! :)

    1. its probably hard to tell from the photos, but it is a really strong red, it wouldnt need a creamier red as a base. It really doesn't look as jelly in real life :)

  2. What an amazing shade!! I don't have any CG polish yet :/ here in Spain are a bit expensive.

    Regards! xx

  3. What a great polish! I don't have any China Glaze in my collection yet but I'm definitely looking forward to the day I do haha!
