Signature Sunday: Nail Polish: An Affair in Red Square by OPI

I have five signature nail polishes and I will continue to reveal each one in a post.

Check out the previously featured polishes in this short series:
1. Style Hunter by essie
2. Mademoiselle by essie
3. Red Hot Rio by OPI

Feeling festive, I painted my nails with my go to shimmery red polish for Christmas. It was perfect. This stunning shade is called An Affair in Red Square. In the bottle, this OPI nail lacquer is a rich red with red and golden shimmer.

However, you do not see the golden shimmer on the nail, which I happen to prefer. Mostly a neutral red, I would say it is a tiny bit more cool-toned than warm, which I also prefer. It is a deep red with generous shimmer, which is gorgeous in the sunshine.

If you are looking for something glamorous, the perfect Christmas manicure, or a romantic option for upcoming Valentine's Day, then I would highly recommend this polish.

Among the polishes I consider my signature, I have one more polish to go! Stay tuned.


  1. I have to suggest checking out Formula X (sephora) "Wing Woman"! A great red for any season...not too berry for winter nor too warm fir summer.

    1. Thank you so much for the recommendation! It piqued my interest online, so I will have to check it out in store. I would love to go to Philadelphia in March or April and they have a Sephora on a street I love. I love red, so classic.

  2. I love Affair in Red Square and had it on my toes during the holidays. The shimmer is subtle and pretty. Great choice for a signature color.

    1. It is a fabulous pedicure color too. In fact, I think I prefer a shimmer rather than a creme on my toes. Thank you so much!
