Love & Beauty Brick

I watched the John Waters film "Cry-Baby" last night, and was inspired by all the '50s campy goodness to do some red vixen nails. I had recently purchased a new red by Love & Beauty called Brick, and here it is!

Brick is a red jelly base, with red and gold flakies scattered throughout. Very pretty! As you can see, it looks quite different in the bottle than it does on the nail. I had a hard time photographing this nail varnish - the gold does show up better on the nail than it seems in the photos. It's not as noticeable as it is in the bottle, but the gold does give the polish nice dimension. The application was smooth. I used two coats, and one coat of Seche Vite.

Now, back to "Cry-Baby" and some fun inspiration photos. I love the character Wanda Woodward, played by Traci Lords. Here's a shitton of pictures of her!

Love her! Love John Waters! What's your favorite John Waters film?
