Retro Nails: Revlon Red

Here's another classic red nail polish shade from the makeup company that knows reds—Revlon Red was introduced in 1988 which makes it just shy of 25 years old. I profiled another of Revlon's classic reds—Cherries in the Snow—back in April. By comparison this shade is a truer red without any pink undertones. 

Christy Turlington wore the shade well in the vintage print ad pictured below. Sadly, the matching lipstick is no longer available.

I believe Revlon Red nail polish came out BEFORE 1988. The lipstick perhaps came at that time, but the nail polish already came out at the time.
