This is my first China Glaze polish. I love love love this color. A perfect candy apple red. It looks so pretty on both fingers and toes. The only problem is that it seems to chip much faster than my usual OPI. Even with a protective topcoat, I got chips on day 5. I can usually go 2 weeks with OPI. That being said, I love this color so much that I would buy it all over again.

This is currently my HG red polish. Salsa is a bright, fire engine red polish with a cream finish -- no shimmer or glitter here. I'm a big fan of China Glaze polishes, but this one in particular is a real winner for me. I never go without a top coat, but this polish has an amazing shine on its own, so you could very easily skip a top coat with this if you're willing to get chipping a little sooner. With a top coat, this lasts 5 days before minor tip wear occurs, and I usually go a week before chipping starts. I have much more expensive polishes that don't last nearly that long on my nails. This is pretty much opaque in one coat, but I always apply two anyway. This color isn't too dark or too light, it's just a true red that is perfect to wear for any season. I think this shade is super classic and elegant. I haven't purchased another red polish since I found this shade, and I probably won't unless some other really amazing red comes out. Love it!

I received this nail polish in a Luxe box subscription and I'm so glad they included this polish in my box. I agree with other reviewers that this polish is a nice candy apple red shade. It looks great on my lightly tanned skin. I only needed one coat for it to be opaque. I look forward to purchasing more China Glaze polishes in the future.

When I want a red manicure, this is the polish I go to. It is difficult to find the perfect red that is actually red because there are so many types of reds. This formula required 2 coats to be fully opaque and does not have any sparkles inside. Perfect cream polish!

I love this color! Though I disagree with everyone saying it's a candy apple red. It's more of tomatoey red.. It's great on toes.
Nice formula- easy to apply, doesn't chip much.

Like others have said, this is a beautiful, classy and sexy red- exactly like a candy apple. Looks great on my lt-med Asian skin (use on my toes).

I'm loving this on my nails right now. The bright, candy apple red goes great with my pale skin. This is similar to my all time favorite OPI Dutch Tulips! Love :)

This is a really nice red! It is a valentine red or car red. It is not dark at all! I really like that it is shiny and i dont have to apply a top coat! The brush is nice and wide and covers the nail completely.But like all China Glaze they chip fast so only 4 lippies.
