At the moment I have on 'I'm Suzi and I'm a Chocoholic', Milani 'Gems' on ring fingers, INM 'Looks Wet' top coat. A warm, comforting, deep, reddish brown color perfect for Autumn/Winter. My manicure is glass-like and it looks as tho I have I have had my nails professionally done when in reality it took me 10 minutes!
Color - AMAZING
Application (2 coater) - STELLAR - Buttery Smooooth
Price - $13NZD Totally worth it
Overall - FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC!!
The most flattering vampy warmtoned chocolately wine red. Applies smooth and non-streaky. Being super pale and very yellow toned it's hard to find reds that don't look garish on me and I usually opt for the vampy almost black wine shades and plums. This would be a great staple in any collection.
This is so good I may have to break the long standing moratorium on buying more polish. Tried this when getting a pedicure. Looks lighter in the bottle than applied. I love cream(no sparkle) burgundies and red browns and have many but this one is different from all of them and really nice. Not as orange as London Bridge is Falling Down, darker and warmer/less mauve than French Cognac. This fits into a color niche unlike any of the other OPI polishes I have seen. It is a subtle color - may-be it seems that way because it is compatible with my medium-light warm skin tone. Prior to this my favorite was Oh to be 25 again, which is more rose-burgundy, also lovely. If you like that but would like something a little more warm and red you may like this.
Once upon a time in the '90s I was in love with OPI's "French Cognac", which has long since been discontinued. This is a reasonable replacement for it, and I am happy. A flattering red with brown tones. Yay!
Elegant red, brown with a wow factor. Love it on my toes. Not too dark. My new fav warm red.
this colour is lovely!
you can either class this as a chocolate brown with a red tone, or as a dark red with a brown tone. the two are mixed wonderfully in my opinion, and this unusual colour caught my eye immediately.
this colour is also quite dark, and i love to see this on my nails in autumn and winter especially.
i feel that this is also a really nice reference to the traditional 'dark red nail' manicure, but with a lovely chocolatey twist!
I'll start this review by saying that I find reds difficult to wear. This goes for lips and nails. I generally look best in brown-based reds, as opposed to those more blue or orange, but even so it is hard for me to find one that isn't too garish, or so deep that it simply looks brown/black until someone peers closely at it. It's very frustrating because I see beautiful red nail polish on other women all the time and it looks so elegant and sexy, but I never feel I can find one that looks the same on me.
With that said, this is my favorite red nail polish of all time. The shade is a dark warm red, almost a brick color. I would not call it brown, as I see other reviewers have. It's definitely red with a glossy creme finish, and has a pin-up girl/old Hollywood glamour to it, but isn't so loud that it would look inappropriate in a conservative business environment. I get compliments on it all the time (some no doubt from friends who are sick of seeing me play it safe with pinks and beiges all the time, ha ha) and I'm just sorry I didn't find this sooner.
I don't see as much brown as other MUAers, but it is a nice dark red that gets attention, but not too in your face. Formula is a dream (especially for a cream type finish), great applicator brush as always, you won't go wrong with OPI. I have had it on my toes for close to a week and they still look great (very little tip wear, still glossy (I use Seche Vite)). Lovely product.
A gorgeous red with some brown in it, I'm really happy to have found a color that's different from my usual winter reds and vampy colors. This one is dark, rich, and slightly vampy after two coats, but still classic, and would look just as stunning on hands as on feet. It would be awesome for a dressy occasion, as well as daily wear. I can definetely say this one will be in my top 5 fave polish colors for a long time, if not always!
This is one my favorite shades that OPI has come out with in a long time. It's kind of a rusty brown, with a tinge of red. It's a perfect fall/winter color and is very versatile. It's super flattering and the formula is typical OPI. I'm fair to medium, very dark hair and eyes and neutral coloring. I plan on using this ALOT in the cooler months! Way to go OPI.
