Cherries in the Snow

If you have a moral objection to make-up or think red nails are only for harlots, you should perhaps just skip this post.  But if you’re looking for a fun, timeless color that I can pretty much PROMISE will look good with your skin-tone, then stick with me for a moment.

“Cherries in the Snow” on my real hand ;)


Revlon’s “Cherries in the Snow” was first introduced in 1953.  That’s right- almost 60 years ago.  A color HAS to be good to be kept around that long.  Consider how trends come and go and new color lines are constantly introduced.  The fact that this shade has endured is really saying something.


This is a “blue red”, more on the pink side than the orange side, and it looks good on just about every skin tone I’ve ever seen it on.  Whether I’m winter-pale or sporting the pale gold tan I sometimes get, this color works.  While these days it graces my toes more often than my fingers, this shade has been in my arsenal since my teen years.  I get compliments from the thirteen-year old girl across the street and, when I used to work down in Boca, the 80-year old ladies loved it too.  Timeless.  I’m serious.


Why am I telling you all this?  Just ’cause I love you.  I don’t care where you buy it.  If you decide to, I hope you get a stellar deal on it.  If you play the drugstore game, you ought to be able to score it for free or close to it at some point.   I will get not a cent of kick-back should you indulge in a little “Cherries in the Snow.”  But I still hope you do.  And if you do, please let me know what you think of it!


(By the way, we happen to think it looks rather precious on toddler toes, too.)
