First I wanted to try one of my thrift shop finds out - it's called Heart of Africa by China Glaze. It's a beautiful deep shimmery/pearlescent burgundy. Oh, this is my new "prop" lol - it's a crystal paperweight magnifying glass that just so happens to line up my nails very nicely for a great picture! So you can bet this will be making a cameo here and there.
I was a bit bored of this color after a day, so I thought i'd drop a coat of Deborah Lippmann "Red Ruby Slippers" on top and wow...what a beautiful addition. It's such a versatile combination with the shimmery red underneath which really shines through in the light.

And last, I picked up this China Glaze swatch last week for free with my purchase of Seche Vite. It's called Shower Together. It's so pretty and applied so smooth and perfect with 2 coats, and a top coat of Seche.
