Maybelline Keep Up The Flame is part of their Color Show polish line. Shown here at 2 easily applied coats. You can't go wrong with a classic coral-y red jelly polish. Looks great with every outfit all year long.
You can keep up with what I'm reading on Goodreads!
Sally Hansen Quick Brick is part of a limited edition set of Sally Hansen's Insta Dri polish line. Quick Brick applied like a dream and is shown here at two coats but I probably could have gotten by with just one. I absolutely love the Insta Dri brushes because they are wide and curved and just so easy to use. Great classic red cremes aren't hard to find but if you don't already have a few in your stash go pick this one up at your local drugstore!
Thanks for reading!

Sally Hansen Red Carpet is part of the Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear collection. Red Carpet is great rich red jelly filled with red shimmer. Fantastic polish with a wide brush that barely needs a second coat!
This is one fabulous coat of Formula X For Sephora Nova. Nova was very easy to apply and I'm always on the lookout for one coat wonder polishes. It takes a little longer to dry than the Zoya Pixie dust polishes and the texture is much rougher but it's a stunning polish. I've never tried any Formula X For Sephora polishes before but I'd love to have the entire Celestials collection if they are anything like Nova!
This is an older Milani but it sure is great! Milani Ready To Wear Red barely needs a second coat, really great formula! Truly fantastic shade of red too, maybe a shade or two lighter than blood red with lots of depth. Definitely a keeper!
OPI Midnight In Moscow was originally part of their Fall 2007 Russian collection but has since been added to their Classics line with good reason!
OPI Midnight In Moscow is so fun; it looks like liquid vampires! It's a sheer charcoal jam-packed with brick red micro shimmer. The first coat is streaky but as soon as you start the second coat everything turns rich and glossy and magical. I love OPI's wide brushes too so this one really was a pleasure to apply. I don't usually go for dark, vampy colors but Midnight In Moscow is simply fantastic!
My wonderful sister, Alisa, got this for me for Christmas since she knew I would never get it for myself. She said I should definitely have it for my collection though and I certainly can't argue!
Rouge Louboutin clocks in at $50 a bottle and I have to say I think it's worth the price if you love beautiful packaging and nice red creme polish. The bottle and brush are around 8" tall and make a big statement! Truly perfect faceted bottle with ombre red to black coloring and a long spiky handle. Just looking at it makes me happy and I think you could use it as a weapon in a pinch!
Rouge Louboutin is a one coat wonder that practically applies itself. The long tapered handle is a pleasure to use and the color is a nicely balanced red that will look great on most anyone. I love it! Thanks Alisa!
Revlon Spice It Up is from their 2011 Spice It Up collection. I don't usually go for vampy polishes but there's just something about this one that I really love. Revlon Spice It Up is a deep brick red with copper micro shimmer that applies easily in 2 coats. Gorgeous!
