OPI Dear Santa - One of my favourite reds.

So I don't wear red TERRIBLY often, but I have a few favourites, and this one probably tops them all. OPI Dear Santa was from the 2009 holiday collection, and when I found it at a beauty supply store last year I was really excited because I'd seen swatches and thought it was just stunning.

It's a cherry red with a really gorgeous gold shimmer that appears best under indoor light.  Outside it's a gorgeous shade that looks like hot coals.

It's really flattering on my warmer skin tone, and I doubt it would fare so well on someone pinker.  If you have cool-toned skin, I'd stay away from this one.  I think this is one of the best reds I've come across.

It IS a little sheer, so what you see here is three coats and I know some people like to use four, but I find three is plenty for me.

What's your favourite red?  Do you like Dear Santa?


  1. So pretty! I don't really wear reds but this is one I would make an exception for!


  2. I don't usually wear reds too often either, but this one looks really nice on you!

  3. Lovely color! I don't wear red very often either.

  4. This red is very very pretty! My favourite reds are at the moment China Glaze Poinsettia and OPI Wocka Wocka.
