This has got to be my favorite shade of red. I hate when you buy a bottle of nail polish that seems to be the perfect red and it turning out to be either a orange-red or pink-red color. I cant stand it! If you want a true red, almost on the deep red side, this is for you. It goes on amazingly and looks great after two coats. With a top coat I haven't had any problems with chipping aside from normal wear. I will definitely buy again.
i went out searching for a new red because my go-to red, OPI's Got the Blues for Red, has gotten gloopy and darker over the years that i've had it. I wanted something a tiny bit brighter than that.
I found Kennebunk-Port and Malgara Wine (spelling?). They look similar in the bottle but when held in proper lighting you can see the difference. I got KP because it was lighter.
It truly is the perfect red. Not too bright, not too dark (i hate when its so dark it looks brown in some lights). Application was dreamy, it was so watery yet stayed in place where I brushed it instead of leaking around. This is one of those magical nail polishes that smooth itself out into a flawless, even surface even if your application was a little streaky.
I'm so freaking glad I found this color.
This polish is one of my go-to reds because it's pure perfection for my skintone. It's neither cool nor warm-toned, so I think just about anyone could pull off this red. It's not too bright/light ... not too dark, just the perfect mid-red cream. It's not particularly unique ... but overall, I adore this red because it's timeless, classic, and applies and wears exceptionally well. One of my fav reds of all time!!
I ABSOLUTELY ADORE THIS. Perfect shade of red, very classic and classy. I've found red nail polish to be a bit garish and unflattering on my pale skin but this is classic blue-red- very Hollywood glam and perfect all year round as a fail safe all season and trend colour.
Must buy - the only nail colour you'll ever need.
I have been searching for literally YEARS for the perfect red color. I always find colors too bright red or too sparkly/pinkish. I got a mani/pedi at a salon with this color and knew immediately that I had found my perfect color! The only problem was it was very hard to track down. After a lot of searching I finally found one bottle at a Target, I later purchased the lone bottle on clearance at a Trade Secret store. The color is a bit thin, two coats look find but three look even better. It is not tomato or engine red maybe a shade or two darker. It lasted a really long time on my toes and about the standard week on my fingers, though I kept it on about 10 days and still looked decent minus a few nix. I think it's perfect for all seasons and am really looking forward to wearing it for the holidays.
I picked this up at a garage sale this summer, and judging by the labeling it seems to be from the original release/formula, ie. pre-2000. I was geared up for a possible crusty mess, but figured it was only $1, no biggie. Shocker: it's beyond amazing! The formula is thin-ish but still VERY easy to control, and I could have gotten away with two coats but went for three just because. It's a much darker, vampier yet similar-toned version of my other favorite red, The Thrill of Brazil. I'm in love!
**Edit** Be really, really careful with removal - this bad boy stains worse than any other polish I own. Cuticles, nail plates, finger pads, it doesn't discriminate. It would probably be best to just use one cotton ball per finger instead of trying to reuse them.
Hands down favorite nail polish ever. The perfect shade of red for my skin tone; Its a sexy, vampy, retro blue based-red. I usually wear this color during the fall, winter and early spring months, and sometimes on days when Im feeling the need to vamp it up. I cannot say enough good things about this polish!
My favorite red polish of all time! This is a must have for my hands during the holidays, and my year round favorite for my toes. I have been wearing this color for over 10+ years and I still love it. Hopefully, OPI will not discontinue my favorite shade...
This was my go-to red for years and years but I'm pretty sure that somewhere along the way they changed the formula.
It used to be much deeper! I feel like it's much brighter now than it used to be which is very disappointing.
I give it a 3 because it's still a lovely shade, just not what it was.
I think I like this better on my toes. On my finger nails it's a pretty bright red. Was looking for a deep red and found it with Malaga Wine. They look almost identical in the bottle, but the mw is just a darker richer "blood red". Really looks much better with my skin tone. Which is olive, although I'm blonde hair, blue eyed. So I'll keep the kp for my toes. Beautiful red tho.........
