Pretty & Polished: Nova

Hey readers! Today I have yet another beauty from Pretty & Polished! This time it's Nova, which I thought would be fitting considering Valentine's Day is upon us.

Nova is a red polish with holo shimmer. To me, Nova falls under the cherry / apple red spectrum. I'm usually not a fan of reds, usually preferring blues and purples. Most of the time reds are too bright for me. That said, I absolutely love Nova. It's the perfect red and the holo shimmer just adds that little something extra to make it unique. The polish also applied like a dream and was opaque in two coats. I topped it off with some Seche Vite for a really glossy shine, although it did result in some shrinking.

All of the above photos were taken in artificial light. I tried to get pictures in sunlight, but the weather did not want to cooperate. 

You can pick up Pretty & Polished from Chels' Etsy shop. At the moment most of the polishes are out of stock until a shipment of supplies comes in. But keep an eye on the shop for updates!

What do you think of Nova? Are you a fan of reds? Let me know in the comments section!

  1. The color is so lovely, red and coral combination! I don't think it's too bright at all. But it has a spring feel to it:)
