Red Riding Hood at 667 Catherine Arley

Have you entered my giveaway yet?  I hope so!  I'm getting ready to feature one of the polishes from one of the stores we are giving away to!

Today I have Once Upon a Polish Red Riding Hood.  You know I'm a sucker for black & red manis because of my son's soccer teams.  So when I saw this in her store, I knew it would be mine.  Red Riding Hood has red squares, small red hexes, black shreds, white shreds and squares.   As with my other Once Upon a Polishes, it went on easy, great job getting a variety of glitter from bottle to nail.  Spread out easily and laid down perfectly.  I love her polishes!  

I wasn't sure what I was going to layer it over, and then I received a happy in the mail.  I'm part of a group that does monthly swaps and my swap partner sent me my box of goodies!  In it was the lovely Catherine Arley 667, a beautiful grey/silver holo.  I knew this was going to be what I layered it over.

Match made in heaven!!!

So I'm all ready for my day of soccer tomorrow.  GO MUSTANGS!!  

Three coats of 667 by itself (sunlight).  Sigh, how dreamy is this?


More rainbows!

This makes me so happy


Up close and personal

Once Upon a Polish can be purchased at  her Etsy Store.  Catherine Arley is not available in the US and I have gotten mine before on ebay.

  1. I love it, Shannon! For some reason it reminds me of Alice in Wonderland.

  2. Wow those two look so great together. I wouldn't have put something like that together on my own, but man does that work. Both of those are gorgeous polishes!

  3. Oh, I love this! I've been wanting some sticks n stones type polish and this is better with the red!

  4. I love red riding hood! What a great mix of glitters, and it goes so well with the base colour! Love it :) Great swatch.
