Essie Ruby Slippers

Here's an oldie but a goodie! This color is such a great holiday color imo. I got this from the Essie website when they had the Good Buy Colors. I tried to link you, but I can't find that section anymore? I have since come across other bottles of it and the older bottles didn't have the 'e' embossed on the handle. But this one that I received from Essie had new caps with the 'e' on them. Sort of makes you think, huh?

Anyway, this is 3 coats of it. I don't know how to describe this color other than to say it's a red jelly with glitter that is either multicolored or iridescent. I see orange and gold and red at different angles. Sort of like a fire :)

I've read online that over the years some people have been able to find mini bottles of this at Ross and other discount stores like that. I've never really found any cool stuff like that at my Ross. But earlier this year I believe 8ty8 Beauty had some available, which sold pretty quickly. So there's still hope of finding this out there without having to pay high prices! You just have to look and be patient :)

Well, that's it from me for today. I hope you're all doing well and have all your holiday shopping done! Have a great day :D


  1. Stunning! I think this is the best red sparkle polish out there, I love how the glitter has a bit of a gold flash in some lights. Love it =)

  2. What an amazing polish! It's so sad that Ruby Slippers is so hard to find! I still hope to have the chance to buy it someday! :)
