Today I'm wearing... The original retro red

One of the more advantageous aspects of being a woman is the happy ability to nail paint, paint, paint to our hearts content. The opposite sex can also do so of course but generally with varying connotations of gay, grunge, goth - all the g's really.

This week I have been reapplying (I'm not very good at taking off and starting again) Revlons original 1952 shade in its 2010 reincarnation, All Fired Up. The Fire & Ice campaign starring Jessica Biel and shot by Mario Testino is a suitably glamorous tribute to it's immaculate original, and although a classic 50's shade, in my head its more a 1980's in your face scarlet that's giving me a mood boost today.

Love the Fire & Ice matching lippy too, but not quite brave enough to wear it while so pasty. Let's hope it's still around when the sun comes back, should have blogged this ltd edition before now!

  2. Loving the nail polish!
    Being a bit of a retro/vintage lover myself, I'm planning on doing a decades theme for my birthday party.
    I'm going for a 40's tea dress/ Hollywood glamour look - any tips to perfect the look on the makeup front?

  3. LOVE! My mum has worn Fire & Ice on her lips for years. I must say, Revlon's nail polishes are the best aren't they? Lovely consistency, good grippy handle and effective brush. (Ooh get me and my 'beauty writing')
