NOTD: China Glaze - Lubu Heels

Last night I sorted out my polishes and set aside my "untrieds" (well, most of them). I've put them in little baskets apart from the rest of my collection. I had more untrieds than I thought. :/ I counted exactly 40 so I'm definitely going to try and use some of those soon instead of using polishes I've already tried. I've seen some more I'm interested in picking up soon so I don't want my untrieds to become even bigger!

I decided to wear China Glaze - Lubu Heels from my untrieds today! I bought this one when I bought OPI - Just Spotted the Lizard. I'd had Lubu Heels on my wish list for a while so I just picked it up. (Can you believe I don't even have Ruby Pumps in my collection either!? That was the first CG I ever wanted!)

Lubu Heels is a sheer black base with tiny red glitters. I had to do two coats and another very thin coat with this polish but since it's sheer it didn't make my nails all thick which I appreciate. The only thing I didn't like about the formula was that it's extremely runny and I flooded a couple of my cuticles which wasn't fun. Removing black polish from the cuticles isn't the easiest thing in the world!
Regardless, I love this colour! When you're not in direct sunlight it looks just black but in the sunlight, the red glitters pops and is really sparkly!
Lubu Heels is really vampy and I feel like it's almost even sexy! I've never known a polish to be 'sexy' before. Haha! I don't wear darks too often but in the past couple months, while it's been winter, I haven't been wearing that many dark colours on my nails. I have quite a lot of darks in my collection so I was really feeling a dark polish for today. :)

In my daylight pictures you can barely see the red glitter which was disappointing. Stupid me for trying to take my photos one hour before the sun is gone!

Thanks for reading! Hope you're having a great weekend (or week, depending on when you read this ;))!

You must get Ruby Pumps, it's.....everything you imagine and more. I love it!
I have two other dupes for this, but I think Ruby Pumps is the best out of them all.

@Bec
I have seden this comment of yours on so many blogs.

If this is your way of getting views you are probably aware that you now have zero credibility.

I won't be reading your blog because you show you have no ethics & you're totally unbelievable.
