lubu heels

greetings dear dearies! so this post is about china glaze's varnish lubu heels, which is a black polish with red micro glitter (kin to ruby pumps). the polishes were released together to be used to do a Christian Louboutin shoe type manicure, which means the darker black lubu heels on top with the red ruby pumps on the underside of the nail like Louboutin shoes. i didn't do this because it seems ridiculously hard and i don't have the time :) although fun. maybe one day.

*flash*Justify Full*blurry to see the glitter*
i gotta say i mostly liked this polish in bright light and sunshine as indoors or under lamp light it looks pretty plain or slightly brown/burgundy. which is kind of disappointing. i used two coats, maybe three would've been better suited. it applied very well with the first coat being rather runnier than i expected. i noticed with some wear that one or two of the glitter pieces on top (even with seche vite) lost their pigment and became flat tin colored rather than red, which really annoyed me haha. it looked like a smudge or a dirt spot that i couldn't wipe away. not a big deal for normal folks, but for a perfectionist like me, i was going crazy. i look forward to this color on another day, as it is really beautiful. hope your weekends are going splendidly!


  1. That is a great color and it looks lovely on you :) I usually wear it over black, just a coat. It is pretty alone, I just don't have the patience to put 3-4 coats of it on!

  2. I have it on my toes now, I love this color. I was thinking about swirling it with Ruby Pumps for a more glittery effect! This looks great on you!

  3. g0rjuz colour,ur nails are getting longer =D

  4. That is really beautiful. I think I have that one. Isn't that sad that I can't remember what I have? I'm too comfortable to get up and look.

    But I don't, I will get it based on your pics.

  5. Love this polish! I can't do the Lubu manicure. You need some long nails to do it. I love both colors. Your nails look very pretty.

  6. Mary i will have to try it over black, thanks for the tip!

    ooh cool idea for a swirl, Kae!

    you need to get this Nosaby, immediately! haha i seriously love it.

    dear Lucy, i don't know if i'll ever be able to do the lubu mani but if i do i will certainly document my attempt haha! thanks for the sweet comments!

  7. Absolutely love this one.
    Right on!
