When Sally Hansen says that this is Xtreme Wear nail polish, you'd better believe her. This is one of the longest-wearing nail polishes I have. This lasted a whole 6 days on me with nary a chip. Usually a manicure only lasts me 3-4 days, so this is a really remarkable formula for me.
As for the color, Red Carpet is gorgeous. It is a red jelly base with red glitter. This is similar to China Glaze in Ruby Pumps, but Red Carpet is a tad lighter/brighter. This is a great holiday or special occasion nail polish, but this would also look great on the toes with sexy strappy heels or simple sandals or flops. I know, it's snowing hard in other parts of the country and I'm talking flops, but one can dream of spring (we can't wait for it!). It's a bit warm enough here for me to wear peeptoe heels, so I will probably wear this soon.
