Best Red Nail Polishes to Choose from

Today’s post is a classic one, a classic red nail color is a must-have for us, it gives us that oh-so-polished look on days we just dont know what to wear or what makeup to use, hence keep that red handy, I am keeping in mind everyone’s choice and including some shimmer reds, some classic and others some toned down reds. 🙂

Lakme Nine to Five Long Wear Nail Color – Red Queen

“I do not have to struggle with the brush and it does its job well. The nail paint is quite glossy and gives a glossy look in the first coat itself. I like the shade with the one coat, the second coat when applied becomes a deeper maroon on the nails, which doesn’t suit my nails at all.”

Colorbar quick finish fearless red :

A truly gorgeous glossy red, this is a must have.


O.P.I. Color To Diner For Nail Polish

The nail polish has very fine gold and red shimmer in a cranberry red base. The application is super smooth with the OPI Pro Wide brush which is flat, wide and medium in length and this make the application complete in just 2 strokes for me. The polish dries super-fast and the second coat can be applied within 2-3 minutes of the first one.


Maybelline colorama Rubi

As all coloromas the consistency is medium and not too runny; the brush is fair and if you can pick just the right amount and apply it flat on the nails it works well.this is one red that will easily go on all Indian skin tones. What more it would compliment all our Indian ensembles perfectly well as it does the western outfits too.



O.P.I. Danke:

A very glossy red.

Lakme fast and the fabulous Crimson Crush:

Crimson Crush is a beautiful crimson pink shade with subtle shimmer. It is an apt bridal nail paint.

Chanel Dragon Le Vernis 475 :

Rati’s most favourite red nail paint ever.


Chanel April :

It is a lovely reddish berry shade. A lovely option for those who don’t like to wear true reds.


Chanel Holiday 617 :

True to its name, the shade reminds of holidays. One of the truest orange nail paint you’d come across.


Chanel Lotus Rouge 455 : A gorgeous wine red color. It is pretty shade for winters especially. It is the kind of shade that is red but not the intimidating red. For those who find it difficult to carry deep reds, this one is a very nice pink.

Chanel Pirate 08 : Pirate is a blue toned deep dark red. It is the kind that you like to wear on your feet. It makes your hands and feet look fairer.


Chanel Suspicious 561 : It is a magenta red color.

China Glaze Cranberry Splash Nail Polish

Red shimmery color that reminds me of red ribbons used for wrapping presents. It’s a very attractive color, my sister immediately asked if she can borrow it the moment she saw it on my nails. This color can be worn any day of the year since red nails always look good no matter what the season is.

Bourjois 25 rouge casio : a bright tomato red. It’s one of those fun cute reds that totally brings a big smile on my face. 😀

“this shade of red is very classic, and it gives off a womanly vibe. This looks flattering against my skin tone. This is my very first time to try a nail polish from the brand Essie. I am impressed with the formula of this particular polish”

Lotus herbals Rose petal:

Another fav of mine, this can be a bridal wear too, this is a beautiful rosy red, very muted and not at all in your face red, this is a classic, the color goes opaque but is not as thick as strawberry shake and the fairy flare one, I like to wear two coats of this one but truly beautiful wearable red.


L’oreal Paris Resist & Shine Titanium Merlot Red


So that is all hope it gave you tons of choices to get those polished red talons soon.
