The longer I wear this polish, the less I want to take it off. It's sparkly, cranberry deliciousness in a bottle. I can't believe it's taken me this long to wear it. It's thee perfect Fall/Winter/Holiday shade.
Originally, Ruby Mine was part of the SinfulColors Crystal Crushes Collection from Fall 2013. I managed to pick up Treasure Chest and Emerald Envy when last year's No Buy was over, but for the most part, I missed out on the sparkly awesomeness of the Crystal Crushes. Booooooo.
But then I saw Ruby Mine this summer during a Walgreens run and gave it a permanent home... aaaaaaand forgot about it. Until I sorted through the sparklestash and created a bin especially for my untried polish. (Soooo much red.)
Ruby Mine is a textured slightly pink-leaning red polish with fine pink and gold sparkles. To be honest, I completely forgot about the texture until I started painting! The formula is great, probably my favorite of all the textured polishes I've tried so far. Amazing coverage and lots of forgiveness! You could easily get away with just two coats, as long as you don't forget to wrap your tips like me!
This shade is definitely going to stick around for the Holidays. It's making me think cranberries, candy-canes, wrapping paper, santa hats, all that good stuff! I'm not sure if I could stamp over Ruby Mine, but I think using it to stamp or do a tape mani would really add depth and interest because of the texture.
What do you think of Ruby Mine?
