Nuance Rococo Red

   Is it really February already?  I feel like I still haven't fully gotten my days and schedule back on track from my surgery and recovery.  Today I have a polish from a new line for you.  The Nuance by Salma Hayek cosmetic line has been around for almost 2 years now at CVS.  But they just introduced a collection of nail polishes with the new Nail HQ at CVS.  

   Rococo Red is a red creme somewhere between berry and brick.  The color varies a bit on what type of lighting you are in.  The brush is rather wide, like the OPI Pro-wide brushes- I swear one day I will get the hang of these.  Formula and application were both good and didn't give me any issues.  I forgot to write down how many coats I used, but I want to say it was 2.  I used Finger Paints base coat and no top coat in the following photos.

   Rococo Red is a nice shade of red, but nothing really unique.  Though I think it would make a great Valentine's mani.  I do like the bottle shape quite a bit.  It's nice a sturdy and doesn't feel like it's going to fall over.  I also think the flower design on the cap is pretty.  I'm curious to see future releases from the collection.  The initial release is a nice set of basic colors and finishes, but nothing that really stood out to me.  So I'm hoping that will change in the future.
