52 Week Nail Challenge 2022: Red

This week's prompt is 'red' here is a link to my 2012 version, as well as the image below my 2022 version;

 I recently found my holographic topcoat and wanted to use it, so this looks like a red holo polish.

Nail Polish Swatch: DRK Nails - PuriFire [PPU August 2021 - The Elements]

DRK recommends using a water based topcoat to avoid dulling, I used Apipila smudge free and then quick dry topcoat. Reminiscent of Max Factor Fantasy Fire, it has a glow within quality. This polish did stain my nails.
