Application was smooth enough on this 4-coater, but the formula was a little thinner than I’d have liked. It has an almost semi-jelly finish with a undoubtedly glossy sheen. Red Alert is an orange-based red that somehow manages to look ok on my skintone. It reminds me of a 1950s pin-up red and I’m a definite fan of the shade.
I have an issue with longevity, suffering a chip within 24hrs of application is not a way to win me over, but strangely enough tip wear was non-existent even after a full 48hrs. If you’re looking for a hot red with retro leanings for your tips or toes, definitely consider Red Alert by Models Own. But maybe employ a good top coat.
