OPI Big Apple Red is the perfect blend between jelly and creme. I think OPI does this finish the best of all polish brands. First of all, the pictures are only one coat. There is a bit of VNL, but it's not as noticeable in real life as it is in the pics. I'm sure a second coat would have solved that. Second, it has that great, super shiny, squishy quality about it that I love. More opaque than a jelly, but still has the jelly finish. Love.
Reds aren't the most flattering color on me, but I still like to break them out once and a while because I think they are a really classic color and work well with nail art!
