Current Obsession - Red Nails

I'm pretty sure the first nail polish was a red one, and ever since then the obsession has continued. I thought I was happy when it came to red polishes until I came across a gem by OPI.

The first red I have is probably my least favourite, it's Collection Hot Looks in Big Hair, the formula of this is a bit thin and takes about 3 coats but it's a classic red shade and very cheap. Next is 17 Fast Finish Polish in Knockout Red, 17 (or Seventeen) have some great affordable polish, two coats of this beauty and you will have lovely red nails, this one is more berry toned rather than orange but I do love it. Next up is my first red and is still the one I will always recommend (note i've made 2 of my friends buy this) Rimmel Lasting Finish in Double Decker Red named after London's famous red buses it is the perfect red and only takes two coats. Finally my new favourite OPI's Red Lights Ahead.. Where? Love the name and this is a lovely pink toned red with a hit of orange. It looks so bright on the nails I can't stop wearing it! OPI aren't the cheapest but I happened to find this on Fragrance Direct for a bargain £3.99!

So that's it, all my favourite red polishes, I would definitely recommend the Rimmel and OPI ones. Next on the list is the perfect orangey red then I think I might be set in the red nails department.

What is your favourite red polish?
