I'll come right out and say it, this has to be my FAVORITE red in my entire collection. It's pure two coat perfection, a blue based jelly-like creme! These pictures have no topcoat because it was so shiny on its own and I didn't want any shrinkage from the quick-dry formula. Application was a breeze, the first coat dried quickly and I didn't have to wait before adding a second. There was practically no cleanup here either as the consistency was excellent and easily controlled.
At two coats you can see a hint of a visible nail line but personally, I like it and I'm not picky enough to add a third coat in an attempt to get rid of it. I had no problem with staining and removal was without difficulty.
This was one of those manicures that my boyfriend noticed right away, even he called it the perfect rockabilly red. <3 It's very pretty and I wore it for two or three days before I made a jelly sandwhich out of it with CG 'Ring in the Red' from the same collection.
