My favorite holiday nails combo: Rescue Beauty Lounge and Cult Nails

I don’t usually rock red nails, I tend to go for pale neutrals for my manicure. But the holidays call for an exception, and I just had to share my most favorite holiday color combo of all time.

I absolutely love two coats of Rescue Beauty Lounge Cherry Love:

and one coat of Cult Nails Doppleganger:

Cherry Love is described by Rescue Beauty Lounge as “Popsicle-fuschia, the love child of hot pink and sizzling red. When pink is too tame and red is too expected, give this glamorous shade a try.” I truly think it’s the perfect matte red with blue undertones. It’s sold out at Rescue Beauty Lounge, but you might be able to find it on ebay or other discount/resale sites.

my favorite combo!

Red nails…so unlike me!

By itself, Cherry Love is a perfect red – but what makes it the ultimate holiday combo is the addition of one coat of Cult Nails Doppleganger ($10). Doppleganger is a topcoat that slightly changes whatever color you apply it over, giving it a slight milkiness plus lots of tiny white shimmer.

I don’t often have a red manicure, but December is definitely my exception to the rule. Cherry Love plus Doppleganger is my favorite, go-to holiday manicure combination.  What’s yours?  – Lisa
