OMFG. This is the most beautiful red I have ever seen in my life. This is the perfect red for someone who wants to wear red polish but is a little wary of it. This red is very soft and in some lights, even looks like a dark, dark pink. I LOVE IT! I rarely wear a plain polish mani. I'm always scotch taping or Konading. Not on this baby! This is too beautiful all on its own to put anything over it.
