When I want a basic red polish, this is the one I always reach for. It isn't too dark, it isn't too orange, it isn't too pink. It's the same color as my Camaro (Victory Red), and it's just right. This is one of those reds that works like a neutral; goes with everything, and it always looks classic and classy. The formula is awesome as it's on the runnier side so it's very easy to do a couple of thin coats. Coverage is good after one, but I always do two. Finish is super glossy and my polish never chips, even after a week (and I'm pretty hard on my hands) although I do use a top coat and a base coat with this. I've never experienced any nail staining, but just to be sure I double up on the base coat with brighter colors like this. If you're looking for a good basic go-to red nail polish, you should definitely give this one a try.
This is my go-to Christmastime or 50s-mood red! Great glide one, works well with two coats, and the color is perfect on my skin. It does NOT have pink/berry undertones like many OPI reds too. I'd say this is a warmer red.
I bought this nail polish because of its name only. But I'm so glad I did! This is a true medium red with the slightest touch of blue, just enough to make it look classy.
"The Thrill of Brazil" has a great formula. It dries super quickly and with a very glossy finish. You can almost get away with one coat.
I love how it looks against my fair skin (NC10/15, for reference), absolutely flattering. I think it really gives that pin up look which I very often crave for.
It's definitely one of my favorite nail polishes ever!
I have bought this polish 3 times because of how much I love it. It is a true red but with a slightly pink/blue undertone. I use this with OPI Chip Skip and then Revlon Top Coat and do not have chips for one week at the least. It is perfect for work (I'm a resident) and for a night out on the town. It looks so good as pedi in the summer as well!
Bought this after looking for a deep sexy red which it 100% is. It isn't too bright and not too dark.
Great formula so only takes two coats to become opaque. Only problem is that it definitely needs a basecoat as it stained my nails however it doesn't put me off wearing it.
If I ran out then I would buy this colour again.
Lovely color application was good and drying time was quick. Color really stands out. Lovely simple plain red
This is my second favorite red polish. I love the name it drew me in at the nail salon and im a huge fan of red polishes so i grabbed this one and tried it and fell in love. Its a favorite for on my toes too. Ill continue to buy this color.
Nice medium warm red colour, but nothing special. I really like the name :-)
Very nice aplication, good staying power.
The Thrill of Brazil is a classic, true, slightly blue based red. Application was fine, two coats covered well. However, after a few days the color became blotchy. It simply seemed to darken in some areas of the nail. I have no idea why it did so. I have never seen other polishes do this. I put on a top coat every second day as I always do, and that made it look even worse. It also got a weird, plastic like surface that I have seen on other colors from OPI, but never as bad as this. I wouldn't buy it again. There are far more beautiful reds out there.
When I was searching for a classy red nail polish shade, I scored with this one.
I love this red.. it's what I imagine when I think of red nails.
Doesn't streak, I put two coats.
Along with Big Apple Red, this is my favorite go to polish for work or a night out :D
