Guerlain Rouge d'Enfer (121) Le Vernis
Guerlain Rouge d’Enfer (121) Le Vernis

Guerlain Rouge d’Enfer (121) Le Vernis ($23.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is bold, brightened medium red with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. Cult Nails Evil Queen is cooler-toned. Rescue Beauty Lounge Poppy has a pearly shimmer and is more orange. China Glaze Poinsettia is as warm-toned. Essie Meet Me at Sunset is a touch more orange.

Like Champs-Elysees, Rouge d’Enfer performed extraordinarily well. It applied flawlessly with rich, opaque color in two coats (I used just one on my pinky nail, and it looks opaque there, too). The formula isn’t too thick or too thin, and it flowed well across the nail without streaking, bubbling, or pooling along the edges of the nail. It dried down faster than the average polish, and the resulting finish is incredibly glossy and shiny without a top coat. I’ve only fully tested one shade from the latest release of colors, but I’m in the process of testing another shade (one of the shimmery ones). I had no trouble getting to a full seven days with very minor tip wear (but no chipping) with Champs-Elysees.

Rouge d'Enfer

A+
It is a classic shade of warm red, so while lovely in so many ways, it is also a shade you may already have in your stash.
