OPI's From A to Zurich

On my quest to find some nice red shades I stumbled upon OPI's "From A to Zurich".

My initial impressions of this particular shade on my nails was that it looked like a medium red, lovely, wearable colour.  It was screaming "Look at me!" like some reds do.

Coats:  2 applied

Thickness of Polish:  on a scale from 1 (thinnest) to 10 (very thick) I would give this a pleasant 4.

Ease of Application:  With the awesome brushes OPI have and with the perfect consistency it was very easy to apply this shade.  Personally, I appreciate all polish brands whose brush and formulation allow for a simple 3-stroke application.  Not all manicures look profession when completed, but I'm sure everyone can achieve a near perfect mani with this one.  Well done, OPI.

Appeal Factor:  Enormous.  I received numerous compliments while I was sporting this shade.  Very stunning and good for day to night time - a must-have if you like reds.

This shade is now alongside "Perfect Red" as my two favourite reds, and we all know it is the season in which reds, greens, golds and silvers come to life.

During these colder months I find it can sometimes be challenging to keep my hands well moisturized at all times.  For this reason I always apply ASK Cosmetics' Skin Conditioning Milk several times each day.  You can easily rub it in before doing a manicure as it does not contain any waxes or silicones that will ultimately coat your nails.  In addition, these nasty waxes and silicones act like solvents and strip your hands of their necessary hydration.  Have a good look at the ingredients of your hand lotions before purchasing.

My question for you is:  Are you ever so impatient that you ding one nail just when you thought they were all dry?
