Perfect warm red. Excellent flow and coverage. Just the best red ever for warm toned skin. I'm thinking I need a back-up bottle.
Styling Products -Garnier - Fructis Sleek & Shine 5 in 1 Serum Spray

Use this with care - you just want a touch to tame flyaways or treat frizzies - otherwise you can get that greasy look. Not good. Best bet: LIGHTLY spray on your hands or brush and work through your hair. It certainly has helped my coarse, curly, frizz-prone hair but just a touch is all I need.
A very nice but easily duplicated soft brick red. You need 3 coats for full coverage. Good for warm-toned gals and older ladies like myself who want a bit of color but can't (or won't) go too edgy. I wouldn't repurchase simply because I never buy the same nail color twice. There's always something new, isn't there?
What can I add? It's a lovely color and, as the previous reviewer suggests, layered over Lucy, a sheer white, gives a lovely clean French-style manicure. Highly recommend.
Great product. Exactly as the previous reviewer describes. Makes your nails look clean and neat. A perfect solution when you need a break from color. No streaking!
I can't believe no one has reviewed this great neutral. The formula is great, it covers very nicely in 2 coats, and wears very well. Very inexpensive. But the biggest plus is the color: a nice, warm pale cocoa, suited to more warn toned skin I would say. A great neutral, work appropriate, everyday color, especially nice when you need a break from darker colors but want something a bit more than a sheer. I got mine on-line but I've seen it at Bed, Bath. I'll be keeping a back-up of this one.
Yes, I would also prefer a slight increase in the micro-shimmer but, otherwise, this is the usual OPI perfection. Glides on, covers perfectly, gorgeous color. Lovely on warm toned skin. A great neutral.
Lovely coppery red but I must admit, I like Zoya's Colbie better. Colbie is a redder, hotter version of Foxy. When you compare them, you see that Foxy is like a paler, slightly washed out Colbie.
I find Zoya polishes a bit difficult to work with. This one is no exception, however after the streaky first coat, it does smooth and cover beautifully with the second. A lovely dark red shimmer. Very nice but I probably would not repurchase. Too many other similar shades out there in formulas and brushes that are easier to handle. UPDATE: Had to update to a full 5 lippies. This color is so hot.
Bummer. This just didn't work for me. Looks like mud on my nails. Not pretty. I was hoping for a kind of edgy but still flattering look but this just didn't cut it. I might try again on toes. Very sad.
The best top coat I've tried. However, I've only used this over Zoya polishes so far. I've been a SV loyalist for so long but the Q is winning me over. 5+ days and counting and no nicks and very little tip wear. I used Zoya Anchor, 2 coats of Tamsen (a red creme - amazing) and the Q. I've never had a red creme last this long without looking pretty shabby. I also really like the Qtica cuticle cream. Good stuff.
I finally had to give up on volume-type mascaras. My lashes are just too straight and fine and, with age, have become rather fragile. Decided to try a lengthening type and this one is pretty good. The applicator is a bit strange - not really a brush, sort of a prong thing which takes some getting used to. You can apply too much product very easily but with practice, I've gotten used to it. I do have to carefully comb out after application and it helps if I remember to use a curler first. The end result is worth the effort. I have nice lashes again and the regular, non-waterproof formula in Black/Brown and it stays put fairly well and removes easily with L'Oreal's eye-makeup remover.
Just gorgeous. Applies like a dream and reasonable staying power. A beautiful, versatile soft peach. The shimmer side adds a very subtle touch of glimmer. Lovely.

I agree with everything the previous reviewer says EXCEPT for the reference to "sparkles". I'd call it "shimmer". The shimmer is subtle, unlike what I think of with sparkles, larger chunks that would be totally inappropriate in a high-end lipstick. Love this soft coral and adore all Dior products.
Just a lovely color. So happy and cheerful. A perfect juicy coral for spring and summer. My only beef: it's a bit streaky and difficult to work with. I did two coats with base and top and couldn't get it to cover completely. Next time I'll try 3 coats. I think the trick will be to thin it down a bit and apply 3 thin coats. Still, it's gorgeous.
