For years OPI Cajun Shrimp has been my go to polish for a summer red. What I look for in a summer red polish is an orange red not a wine red or a "Christmas" red. Ciate Mistress is perfect and in a way I even prefer it to OPI's Cajun Shrimp because it has a brighter cherry undertone. The application is pretty good as well. I use two coats and as always Butter London Hardwear top coat (the only top coat I ever use) and it stayed chip free for a week. If you're looking for a bright spring and summer color thats as gorgeous and uplifting as a flower on a spring day, get this polish.
