Motives Wine & Dine

Playing "pick the random polish" again from my untried box, and today is Motives by Loren Ridinger.  I'll be honest, I had never heard of this brand before I'm always eager to try new things!  Motives is a toluene, formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate (DBP) free, as well as gluten-free and is not tested on animals.  They offer a variety of colors and finishes that are long lasting and chip free.  I received Wine & Dine Me, a medium red metallic color that was super popular in Fall 2011.

I used a base of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and a top of CND Air Dry.  I didn't have any issues with formula or the brush itself.

In the sun you can see how well this polish applied.  While it's not a true metallic, it's also not a pearl even though there's a bit of streaks. 

In my first shade picture, you can see it's not quite orange, not quite red.  It reminds me a bit of China Glaze Street Racing (which also is staring at me from my untrieds) but I think this is more orange.

This is also a shade color but just different overhead coverage.  I really do like this color quite a bit, and wonder how more of these colors would look!  

Finally, indoors with the flash and it is pretty red hot!  I am definitely happy with this polish and would like to purchase some in the future.
