The perfect Valentine's Day reds from Sally Hansen and NYC!

Looking for the perfect reds to wear for Valentine's Day? I've got a Sally Hansen Patent Gloss red and an NYC Expert Last lip gloss in red to showcase today - could they be perfect for you? Check them out after the cut!

Isn't the true red of Moto beautiful? This is a new finish for Sally Hansen - patent gloss. High shine! It is said to mimic the finish of patent leather shoes. This polish could have been a one-coater, but I went with two to be safe. This formula was smooth and went on easily. Patent Gloss is currently available in 4 shades. Along with the red, there's a deep blue, a tan and a black.

This long-wearing lip shade is Rockaway Ruby from the Expert Last Lip Lacquer line. This has a doe foot applicator (as you can see from the collage at the top of the post), and it glides on without resistance. I put this shade on and wore it around my house for the night. The photos on my lips are after about an hour of wear. I was sipping on a drink and watching TV. You can see it has bled a little, as I did not wear a lip liner. But I do believe it still looks good!

Do you have the perfect red for the holiday? What do you consider the best? Gimme some of your perfect nail and lip colors in the comments!
