I love all of these Essence Gel polishes! They apply easily, the dry pretty quick, and they last much longer than the average polish. They have a pretty wide brush, so it only takes two brush strokes to coat each nail. This shade is a bright, pin-up red. Every girl needs a good classic red in their polish collection because it looks great on both the fingers and toes! Plus, what is Christmas time without a bright red nail?!? I made a big old mess when applying this (I am blaming my kids), so please disregard the hot mess of my nails in the cover is not the polishes' fault! The shade is very opaque and you can get away with only one coat, but to make it perfect, you should apply a second coat. Pictures here show two coats and a top coat. This really doesn't stain the nails all that much upon removal...though I did find it more taxing to remove completely than other shades. My biggest issue with the shade is that chipping with this shade is VERY noticeable and a bit distracting. All that said...A truly great red!!!
