12 Days of Favorite Nail Colors from Jamie and Katie: China Glaze Ruby Pumps & Zoya Adina

Some people's beauty obsessions are obvious early in life. For my best friend, Katie Reed, and me, it was definitely nail polish. We've been in love with cool, bold colors since the early 90's -- we used to trade them back and forth while sitting in our high school hallways before class. For the next 12 days, we'll be bringing you some of our favorites in what we're calling 12 Days of Favorite Nail Colors.

Jamie: Today's color is China Glaze Ruby Pumps. This is a classic and a coveted color from China Glaze. It was originally released with the limited-edition Wizard of Ooh Ahz collection back in 2001, and, after fans clambered for its re-release, China Glaze listened and put out the collection again in 2009. Ruby Pumps is just one of those colors that works its way into every girl's heart -- it's a perfect, gorgeous cherry red with tons of sparkle and a jelly finish. And, obviously, it's meant to emulate Dorothy's ruby slippers, which I think it does in spades. In short? It's perfect. And this is coming from someone who doesn't even wear red nail polish!

Katie: Today's color is Zoya Adina. Duochromes are all the rage these days, but when Adina was released in 2010, they were much less common. Zoya Adina is a really fun purple-based polish with a green shimmer in certain lights. I could stare at my nails all day long when wearing this, and I particularly like the combination of purple and green. It's shown here with three coats. Two might be enough for some, but I didn't totally get rid of the nail line until I added a third coat.
