Simple Mani: Couture Velvet Rope with Stars

Press Sample

Hello Loves.  I have a simple mani to show you today.  I've been wearing so much nail art lately that something simple actually feels elaborate!  Funny how that happens.

I started with a base of Couture Gel Polish Velvet Rope.  I love this blue toned dark red cream!  It applies smoothly, which is a huge plus.  I have found that dark creams generally want to streak, but this one didn't give me any issues at all.  I then added dots of Couture After Midnight and topped it off with these little gold star studs that I found in a set at Five Below.

Here's the swatch picture of Couture Velvet Rope.

What is your favorite red gel?  Do you prefer shimmers or creams?  Orange tones or blue?


*Couture Velvet Rope was provided by Couture Gel Nail Polish for my honest review.  All other products used, including Couture After Midnight, were purchased by me.


  1. Awesome post. I'm a sucker for patriotic nails. Couture's Pretty Little Liar is the best red I've found - orange u/t (no pink) cream-gelly that looks so fresh for spring through fall. It slightly shows VNL w/ 3 coats but I don't notice it since I almost always wear my nails super short and use it more for pedicures.

  2. OPI Big Apple Red was my favorite red RNP so I bought it from their GelColor line & it doesn't disappoint! It’s a creme with a blue base, but a very true red!
