This is such a great holiday colour! It looks like a nice wine red and can be worn with just about anything, in my opinion. I applied two coats because it's pretty thin, but it ends up looking quite nice. I applied a base cat, two layers of nail polish, and a layer of top coat. My base coat and top coat are both OPI. My appologies for the blurry picture. My camera is finally starting to give up (after 5 years) and I think it's about time I bought a new one. The picture was taken in artifical light.
