China Glaze Short & Sassy

China Glaze Short & Sassy was my only pick from the Retro Diva collection. The color is nice cool red shimmer suspended in dark base and you don't need more than 2 coats to get the full intensity of the color, with short nails one is enough. The shimmer is actually very prominent, but these indirect daylight images lose it almost completely. So I added an ugly image with artificial lighting for more accurate impression of the texture.

Somehow this felt too christmassy for me when I first tried it on... ...and I instantly knew that I will not leave the mani on. So excuse the stains on the cuticles and overall sloppy application. One coat, no topcoat.
