This is a pretty complex red. At least to me. I'm surprised. It's a bright tomato red but then it has a pink tone to it as well as an orange one! What the heck?! Either way, I like it on me way more than I thought. I put it on my toes since they aren't seeing much daylight and I figured if I didn't like the color, no big deal. I'm going to have to try this soon as a full manicure-especially on a dreary day. I'm hoping that I just mean weather. I'm tired of feeling emotionally and physically ill. Viva the bright innards...or something!
