Today I have a swatch of a polish that I picked up in B&M for £1.99. It is Calvin Klein Splendid Color ‘Bright Red’, I also grabbed ‘Cabernet’ which will feature on a later post. I had no idea Calvin Klein even made nail polish! So, can ‘Bright Red’ live up to its name?
I think that’s a “hell, yeah!”
‘Bright Red’ is a very in-your-face red, that leans to the pink side. You may notice little flashes of cerise in the pics, this is much more noticeable in the bottle and on the nails. I’m afraid my camera doesn’t like reds very much.
Application was lovely, the pics show two coats plus a coat of Seche Vite. And a couple of days wear. Sorry about the little dings.
I wore this for a few days, and didn’t have any staining issues. It’s not really an autumn colour (though I do tend to just wear what I like when I like!) but I could see it working great as part of an Xmas mani!
B&M had various red, pink and silver shades available when I visited, or if you don’t have a B&M handy, you can find Calvin Klein polishes at Fragrance Direct, also for £1.99 each.
