Lights! Camera! Application!

I am having a Torrid affair with this nail color.

This #ManiMonday finds me on the set of a TruTV shoot for a sketch show called Friends of the People. The cast stars the very funny Jen Bartels, Jermaine Fowler, The Lucas Bros, Kevin Barnett, Lil Rel Howery and Josh Rabinowitz. Today I play a member of a Salt n Pepa knock-off band.

I knew I had to go back into the 1990s so I chose Orly “Torrid” for its deep, cool red color and shimmer so reflective it is almost metallic. So far I have never met an Orly polish I don’t like. This one is smooth and opaque in two coats. I topped it off with the Nailluminati-approved Sally Hansen InstaDri Top Coat (in the red bottle) because I had to paint my nails right before bed and didn’t want to smudge them in my sleep.

This about sums it up: If a red suits your skin tone there is never a bad time to wear it.

Nailluminati Status: Sultry Sophisticate level achieved.

TUNE IN and watch Friends of the People on TruTV!

What is your favorite red of all time? Let me know in the comments!
