I picked up NARS Dovina on a quick whim (I think I have a collective NARS entry which I should post soon, plus reviews and features of their new releases). It is a beautiful classic red, brighter and creamier than Jungle Red. It is opaque in one coat, though I applied 2 coats in my swatches. I used this over the CNY weekend, and I just love it.</p>
<p>Of course, it is one of the many classic reds I have in my stash, but I always like to own a classic red from every brand of nailpolish I have, and I am glad to add Dovina to the collection. Besides, I think NARS polishes have great formulation across the whole shade range, and so far I have very good experience with my NARS polishes (I have about 15 or slightly more currently).
A few comparisons to my current fave reds which might be in the same category:
Here they are: It is the closest to the YSL red in this set of comparisons, I didn't pull out my Illamasquas, Diors and Essies for this comparison.. but I think you get the idea.
Which is your fave red nail polish?
Hope this entry has been useful, thank you for looking!
