I'm reviewing the color Frankly Scarlet (creme). It's the perfect red!! It's the red that I've always fantasized about and had almost given up hope of finding until I received this from the super-generous Bonnie! It's a bright, bold classic red (not overly bright, just enough to make it strong and eye-catching). I tried this without a basecoat or topcoat. It didn't stain my nails and lasted about 4 days before chipping. Even though it's a cream formula, there's still a little bit of gloss, enough to see my reflection in the nail polish.
