This red foil manicure is pure power

Got a big presentation coming up? Want to create a memorable manicure for a meeting with your coworkers? Neutral nails may be a business mainstay, but sometimes you need to make a statement. For those days when you want to project confidence and also show that you’re a force to be reckoned with, nothing beats a shiny red manicure.
While a single shade of red might garner attention, this tone-on-tone red creation is guaranteed to get you taken seriously. Start with a red base color, and then press red transfer foil onto the nail. This creates a metallic sheen. For added depth and an uber-shiny finish, top off your nails with clear deep red gel.
