My best guess is that this is maX maR #21. It is a mixture of fine red glitter along with larger red and shiny gold glitters. I'm quite fond of it- it's a good layering glitter, and has a very glossy finish. It makes me think of little glowing embers.
I'm always a little self-conscious while wearing red nails, let alone glittery red ember nails... does anyone else feel that way? I never feel the slightest bit self-conscious over blue nails, or purple nails, or any other colour for that matter. Just red.
I have to admit, I don't think I would survive in the world of Ukrainian fashion for very long if I'm shy about red nail polish. The fashion in Ukraine is... well... it's BOLD. I'm not sure how else to explain it. Sometimes that's a good thing, other times a bad thing. At universities in North America I've seen people come to class in pyjama bottoms, or more commonly the ubiquitous yoga pant (thanks for that, lululemon). This would be unheard of in Ukrainian universities. Instead nearly everyone wears sky high stilettos, and what I would generally consider club wear is common every-day wear. The most intense fashion choice I witnessed from a female student was an electric blue furry vest, paired with skin-tight shiny black pleather pants- with requisite stilettos, of course. On an icy day I could hardly navigate the sidewalks in my winter boots, let alone stilettos!
Here are a couple fun pictures of mannequins I saw at a shopping mall during my time in Ukraine:
I think there's only one way to adequately sum up Ukrainian fashion, and that's with a photo of this window display I saw in Odessa:
