Hi guys, I'm looking for a really nice, classic red nail polish.  I have a few from different brands, but have not gotten the right one.  I bought one from China Glaze yesterday, but it's not what I'm looking for.  What are your favorites?  It could be matte, shimmer, anything.  Thanks much.

I have a few reds but the only ones I have swatches for are Wet n' Wild, which I love. I love my Rimmel London one and my OPI but those are more on the brown side than a brilliant red.

I have one of those little Sephora nail polishes that I just adore! Best red I've used!

Did you add anything to your nails to make them look that glossy? I don't recall that polish being that glossy. It's VERY hot look.

Milani Bet on Red is super pretty and not as dark as the swatch online appears to be.

 

This blogger has a swatch up that I was able to find from google...

My favorite true reds are OPI Vodka & Caviar, and Zoya Sooki

 

Here's Zoya Sooki swatched (OPI V&C is just a tad bit darker)

Diava--The Lubu Heels is such a sexy vixen color!  I love it!  What brand is it? Did I miss that somewhere?

 

Annette--Your nails are GORGEOUS! I love them.  Do you do them yourself, or do you have them done by someone else?  Very nice shape.  My ideal shape and length.  If I could find someone who could do my nails like that, I would go and have them done again.  But since I haven't found the right person just yet, I'm just dabbling in painting them myself.  I just ordered some new colors.  Looks like I need some more reds now!
