I hope you are all having a nice Sunday.
It's raining and gloomy here today, so I decided I needed a bright polish to forget the crappy weather. Didn't feel like wearing a neon or a bright whitish pink, colors I love, but decided to go for a classic true red.
The polish I used, China Glaze's Hey Sailor, is my preferred red, even more than Chanel's Fire, Coromandel and Dragon. When I think of red, this is exactly the shade I visualize. The color on the nails is true to the one seen in the bottle.
The formula on this polish, like most China Glaze's, is a bit streaky for the first coat, but it smoothes down and dries evenly when you apply a second coat of lacquer. The drying time is rather short and the finish is ultra glossy, even before I applied my topcoat (1 coat of Sèche Vite).
What is your most reached for red?
