Red nail polish recommendation

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

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 am not a red person by any means...but I love Zoya's Snooki.

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.

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!

Thank you! Yes, those are my natural nails, and I do them myself. You can see lots more on my blog :)
