Bio Sculpture Biogel Rosie Red

For the perfect autumnal red, Bio Sculpture has teamed up with model Rosie Huntington-Whitely for this classy burnt rouge shade. Rather than pillar box red, this is a subtler take on the hue that clients will want to come back to as the weather turns cooler. Bio Sculpture suggests pairing it with creams for high-end nail art looks.
