This is the first time I've ever worn a red nail polish! At first I didn't even recognize my own hands but I think I've grown to like this one very much. I love how bright and vibrant this is. Chinoise is the perfect ripe tomato red with no application issues. It practically applies itself! I used two coats and if you look closely enough you can still see some nail line but I was satisfied enough with two to opt out for a third coat.
