Thankfully it was a color that still had one left in the display. So I ran over to grab the last one. So here's me being all fine and dandy after swatching (from the broken bottle) and taking pics with the new bottle.
*Quick review: Rockin' Rubies is full of ruby red micro glitter and small holographic glitter. It looks silver in my pics but it's really holographic and sparkles lots of pretty colors. I'm wearing 4 coats, but 3 would've have been enough and the formula wasn't hard to work with. The color dries matte, so be sure to add at least 2-3 coats of top coat to achieve the shine, sparkle, and color you see in the bottle. It's also a bit of a top coat eater. Otherwise, worth the $3.99 price if you like red glitters, and it's limited edition.
I am subtracting points for the weak thin bottle though! :( The first time was my fault, but the second break shouldn't have happened. Both of them broke at the bottle neck, so that the brush was still screwed on to the top half of the bottle. Now I'm scared the other bottles will snap at the neck whenever I twist the cap open. So take caution if you're luck is as bad as mine.
Middle: Cracked new bottle taped together. You can see the crack down the side.
Right: Waiting for my bf to run over to Walgreens and grab the cheapest clear (to empty out and use as a new bottle), while I kept the polish alive by resuscitating it with polish thinner.
Rockin' Rubies just didn't want to be my friend. :( Well too bad, cause I've got you locked up in a bottle that won't break.
But here's the silver lining. I kind of hated having to dump a new bottle of clear out (even though this one was 99 cents), so I added some of it to my red green color morphing pigment franken (shown in post Unicorn Pee) since it was a little low on clear and very pigmented. That's not the silver lining, the silver lining is that the addition of the Wet n Wild clear suspended the pigment!
