3.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but..., 29 Aug. 2013
By 
This review is from: China Glaze Crimson - TBP81088 (Misc.)
CRIMSON was part of the 2011 Halloween collection. But as it is still easily found online at low prices I might as well add my 2 cents worth. First up this shade is not actually crimson - it is a dark shade of eggplant, with a slight hint of red to it. The polish has a shiny crème finish.

The pigmentation of the formula is good - it's almost a one coater on me, but I need that second coat to get rid of a few pesky streaks. This is where it fell apart for me. Adding more then one coat turns the dark shade almost black, so the shade loses the red undertone, therefore it loses any uniqueness. The resulting shade isn't bad by any means, but I already have Avon Nailwear's Midnight Plum, and found the shades very similar. CRIMSON is also close to OPI's Lincoln Park After Dark.

It's a shame that I can't get away with one coat; the formula is smooth to apply, and fast to dry. This polish can last me for up to four days before chipping. Since I use a self-powered wheelchair, I found this very impressive. I must also comment on the design of the bottle and lid. The shape is very easy to grip, meaning there's less smudging and spills. For the overall quality of the polish it is a bargain.
