Wow. This is a va-va-voom red. I am seriously in love with this OPI shade that was, not surprisingly, from their 2006 25th Anniversary Collection. It is part of their regular collection now, and thank goodness for that. It’s a deep cherry red, that tends to be deep & dark rather than bright. In certain lighting it’s almost vampy, which is rather cool and shape-shifter-y of it. It’s got a juicy, almost jelly finish that also wears quite well, for a red. Putting a top coat on daily (quick-dry, takes 2 minutes!) helps longevity. I used 2 coats of OPI Quarter of a Cent-Cherry with Lippmann Hard Rock base coat and Lippmann Addicted to Speed top coat. Perhaps it could use 3 coats? It’s hard to say. Anyways, I love it, and have been wanting to wear it every day.

OPI Quarter of a Cent-Cherry is available where OPI is sold. I bought a new bottle this week after Biddy had a horrible nail polish accident with the old one. Her foot is healing well.
