What color red are you?

Today I feel really drawn to the color red. I’m not exactly sure why, but I think it’s because I could use a pick me up of sorts. It’s been unusually gray in my neck of the woods, and I’m dying for a bit more color in my life. And there’s no color that is brighter, bolder, and more dramatic than red… at least in my book. When I got dressed today, I threw on a deep red sweater, and I think I’m going to give my nails a deep red color later tonight. Do you ever feel like you crave red?

One of my favorite things about red is each shade is so different and evocative of a particular feel. Scarlet is so bold, intense, and daring. Coral is more mellow, easygoing, and natural. Rose is hopeful, sweet, and romantic. Maroon is deep, dark, and mysterious. I love every shade of red, and sometimes I even wish I had the guts for a bold red hair color.

For now, I’ll just dream of all of red’s delicious possibilities with this quiz: What Color Red Are You? If you’re like me and love red, you’ll love this quiz. It’s a true celebration of the multifaceted nature of red. Even if you don’t love red (Who are you red haters? Let me know!), I think you’ll find it to be an interesting quiz nonetheless.

Take What Color Red Are You? and let me know what you get. Also, let me know what your favorite shade of red is. I suppose if you had to push me to pick one, I would pick coral. It’s my go to lip color, and I enjoy coral in nature. I’m attracted to the drama of deep reds, but I think something lighter is probably more my style.

      That would be the tone for your preferences! I love those reds, but they look terrible on my skin tone for some reason.

    I got apple red, too. (I don’t think the first sentence is accurate about me–I’d LIKE to be a ton of fun, but I don’t think I am, too quiet really!)

    My favorite red is rose red–more pinky with bluish undertones.

      I can relate to *wanting* to be a ton of fun. I’m quiet too, and I always feel like I embarrass myself when I try to break out of that 😉

    You Are Apple Red

    You’re never one to take life too seriously, and because of it, you’re a ton of fun.
    And although you have a great sense of humor, you are never superficial.
    Deep and caring, you do like to get to the core of people – to understand them well.
    However, any probing you do is light hearted and fun, sometimes causing people to misjudge you.
