The more observant amongst you may notice that the 'red' I am showing you is, technically speaking...orange. But my subject is political science and we specialise in explaining why black is in fact white in certain lights, so I will now proceed to tell you why I am right and OPI is wrong.
I don't wear red nail polish. There, I said it! I occasionally wear reds on my toes, but of all the colours in my stash, reds and pinks are the shades I own fewest of. Being a pale (natural) blonde, I find pure reds too bold for me. However, coral reds, poppy reds (which is what I would classify this as, and that's the story I'm sticking to) and berry reds I like very much. In fact, my favourite lipstick is MAC 'So Chaud' (which I believe is also technically an orange, but it reads as a retro matte poppy on me), and this polish is a great compliment to it, as shown above.
So, back to my favourite 'red'. It was released with the Hong Kong collection in 2010. This is four coats, since although it's creamy, it's a tiny bit sheer and I wanted to make sure the finish was perfect, as befits a favourite. It's a really wonderful, happy colour.
