Fantastic by channel is what iswapped to from from rouge noir when I wanted lighter. Hard to describe colour but try 2 coats as may be too light with one. I have been asked 4 times in as may weeks what it is.

I love Jessica nail polishes. Have you ever tried them? Candy Nails sell loads of them and take returns if you don't like the colour (I use them via eBay) They have a gorgeous dark red. Will check name of the one I have but worth a look.

Mavala Milano?

I am pale and find that Rouge Noir looks too black on me so use this instead, plus it is under £5. It doesn't have any shimmer or pearl to it but I prefer a cream finish. I usually buy it in John Lewis but have seen it in a twin/trio pack in Boots.

This is my nail polish porn site.

I can and do spend hours browsing.

If you do feel the urge to buy - they ship from Germany and the lady I dealt with was lovely (added some free samples and a little bag of Haribo for DD to my order).

I too love Nails Inc varnishes and Victoria is beautiful. If you want something redder, Tate is also lovely.
