Ardene Red Sapphire and Guest Nails!!

If you've look through my blog, you've probably noticed I don't frequently wear typical nail polish colors. One color I very seldom wear is red. I'll wear pinks, sheers, nudes, anything before red. I just am not the biggest fan of red. When I do wear it, however, it's usually for a specific reason, not just because I felt like wearing red that day.

So what's my reason for choosing red today? To match my nails with someone else's nails... Keep reading to see whose!!

Dog Nail Polish



This, is my amazing dog Paisley. She's a 16 month old Jack Russell Terrier that I am ridiculously in love with!! She had to get her nails clipped today, so why not have them painted, too!? This is her first manicure, because I don't have dog polish and I'm afraid to use regular polish on her nails. This is courtesy of out local Petco :)

2 coats Red Sapphire
1 coat Poshe

Ardene is a Canadian brand that sells clothing, accessories, and some cosmetics. I've actually never been there. My boyfriend went to Canada for a bachelor party. Apparently at some point, he managed to stumble himself into a store and bought me 6 Ardene polishes. Lol, he's too funny.

This is actually a very nice quality polish. The brush is great with a nice spread and no random bristles sticking out. It's opaque in 2 coats, and interestingly, the first coat made it seem like it had a jelly-ish quality. Even with the 2 coats, it still has that jelly look, definitely not just a stark creme. It went on very smoothly, no drag or streaks. If you're from Canada and come across this polish, I definitely suggest picking it up if you like one of the colors!
