My first Orly polish- purchased at my local Sally Beauty Supply on sale- I love the color but I found this polish a little difficult to work with. It was a little streaky at times. I took a lippie off of the rating because of this. You will definitely need to apply at least two coats but three coats is best.
This is the shade of red I have been looking for all my life! The Dracula lining or Spawn's cape red. That deep bodeaux that is not purplish, pinkish, black-red or orange.
I use two or three coats and it's a sexy shade all year round.
I would and HAVE re-bought this product. It's my favorite nail color to use for almost any occasion on my hands. The rubber handles on the Orly Nail Polish are easy to grip, especially when you're in the middle of painting one hand or another. I would call it more of a blue-based red if I had to call it anything - but it's more of a flatters anything red, & seems to flatter paleness a lot. A good contrast for winter!
Forever Crimson is a fabulous, classic color. It is a wonderful deep red, not too dark and very shiny. It is an opaque creme, no shimmer at all. The red is a true deep red, no orange, brown or blue tones. This is a perfect "go with anything" red.
