Rihanna's Amazing American Idol Red Nails

Did you see Rihanna on American Idol last week? I have to admit that I do watch that show and wonder about nail polishes (though it is usually in regards to J Lo). Rihanna always has amazing nails, and I really loved the red she was wearing.

It turns out that it was a combination of 2 different gel nail colors.
• EZ Flow Gelez Buff: a subtle, shimmery nude gel polish
• ibd Red Velvet Gelac: a deep, shimmery maroon gel polish on top

In case you missed it, here's a video of her performance!

That's so funny you just posted about this! I just got a gel nail polish manicure yesterday, and I am LOVING it! It has not shown any wear yet, and I love the pale pink sparkle.
Wish I could remember the name of it!

I think I found it! It is called IBD Gelac in Pink Wink. It is a very pale pink with some glitter of the same color in it.

That sounds so pretty! I've only tried out Shellac, no actual "gel" polishes. Did they have to prepare your nail with filing, or did they just apply it? The IBD gels come off with just Acetone, so you can remove at home, which is really nice!

Thanks so much for the post. I actually watched the performance and was loving that nail color. I really need to hop on the gel polish bandwagon. How long do those gel polishes generally last?

CKHagen84- Most of them last 2 weeks without a chip in site! I haven't tried these from IBD (the same people that make IBD also make China Glaze, by the way), but I love that there is a big selection of colors. I'll need to hunt them down somewhere near me!

I love comments! Please ask away, provide info on how you liked something, etc. Note that spam, comments with random links (which I count as spam), anything not in english (again, spam) and comments that are completely unrelated to anything will all be deleted.
