The Almost Reds

Rimmel Salon Pro Hip Hop, Rimmel 60 Second Coralicious

After a little root through my nail polish stash that other day on the hunt for a shade similar to the one Estée is sporting here, I realised I own a fair few 'almost red' shades. Not quite a classic red but they wouldn't really fall under the pink umbrella either, I've bundled them in to a category of their own. They don't get nearly enough love in my stash considering the amount I have, I could barely remember the last time I'd slicked one on so I vowed to give them a little more love.

I think I've come to prefer them on my tootsies however I have been known to sport them up top on one of my more daring days. They look great with a tan, girls heading in to summer may wish to keep that in mind. If you're not up for such a vibrant colour but want to try an 'almost red' then don't fret, I have got just the trick for you. Simply take an uber light milky pink (think Rimmel's English Rose) and apply a really light cover over the top of your 'almost red'. It tones things down to a more pastel, everyday-friendly level. Much easier to sport.

Be sure to pop a pic on Instagram if you try this trick yourself and tag me (@annablush), I'd love to see!
