Ruby Pumps

Hello all!!! I have a fabulous polish to share with you!!!

First, let me say this: I do not normally turn to red polish. Why? It is a pain to clean up, it stains your nails, and I tend to think it is boring by itself.

Now....let me tell you why this polish, Ruby Pumps by China Glaze, has changed my mind about red polishes FOREVER.

China Glaze Ruby Pumps is fabulous. The red is such a great shade. The glitter is glitter-tastic! And surprisingly, the clean up was CAKE! I love the formula to this polish. It just glides on. The brush is perfect...even for this tiny bottle! I had picked up this 3.6 mL bottle at Sally's Beauty Supply a few weeks ago. It was in the clearance bin for $1.69. It then was discounted even further, and I got this bad boy for $0.49!!!! Can't beat that price!!! Now that I have tried it, I seriously need to pick up a bigger bottle!!!

Now in the photos, this manicure is a few days old, so I have a few chips, scuffs, and tip wear. But I am happy with how well this polish has held up! I couldn't bring myself to add anything to this manicure, for fear of taking away from this gorgeous polish. I can't even describe how much this polish sparkles.

It appears to be a red jelly polish with lots and lots of glitter. I can't tell if the glitter is actually red or silver....but I am assuming red. Here's what I did:
2 coats Sally Hansen's Double Duty Base Coat
2 coats China Glaze Ruby Pumps
1 coat Seche Vite

Can you believe I got this opaque in TWO coats??? Amazing!

This is officially my go to nail polish! I am sooo in love!!! <3

Have you guys tried Ruby Pumps? What do you think of it? I have read mixed reviews on this polish...but people who hate it really haven't explained why. Maybe I need to search better?

Until next time....


Disclosure *I was not paid for this review. I was not given the polish for this review. I paid for the polish with my own money. This is purely my own opinion, thoughts, and suggestions about this polish.*


  1. Ruby pumps is gorgeous. I can't really see why people wouldn't like this. It's such a nice red!

    1. Right? I saw on Instagram that someone hated this polish. But didn't say why. I mean, it is kinda tough to remove, like all glitter polishes, but it really isn't the worst glitter polish to remove. I absolutely looooove this polish!
