Review of Aimeili 064 Pillar Box Red Gel Polish

Is there anything more iconic than classic red nail polish? I feel like this is the color that confident and sexy women (and men!) gravitate towards, and so it’s great to have at least one red polish in your collection to boost your self esteem.

Aimeili’s gel polish in 064 Pillar Box Red is the perfect shade for any skin tone. It looks like what you think a vibrant cherry red should look like, and it comes in a 10 mL bottle with an easy to control brush.

Lucky Money Manicure

Happy Chinese New Year!

Frankly, I have to admit that I’m a little appalled by some of the “Chinese New Year” manicures that I’ve been seeing. Apparently some people think the prompt is simply “Asian,” which allows them to paint Japanese cherry blossom manicures or Kabuki masks. I mean, at least get the country right!

Any self respecting Chinese person will tell you that this holiday is all about the color red to scare off bad spirits and bring you good luck. Equally important is the color gold to welcome money and fortune into your life, which is why lucky money envelopes are usually red and gold.

This manicure is clearly inspired by these envelopes, so I started by painting my nails a nice bright red. I used 064 Pillar Box Red from Aimeili here, applying 2 coats and curing each one for one minute.
