NOTD: ORLY Bus Stop Crimson


This is two coats of ORLY’s Bus Stop Crimson (I think of Marilyn Monroe in the movie Bus Stop whenever I pick up this shade). Deep Oxblood / Red Creme.

It’s official! I have found the most perfect red polish EVER! This is truly one of the prettiest shades I have ever owned (and, for some reason, makes me think of Thanksgiving). Bus Stop Crimson leans more towards the oxblood / cranberry family, as opposed to the bright red family, so it is perfect for fall / the holidays. I had some trouble with this polish. The first coat was incredibly thin and runny and got everywhere. Plus, it smelled really strongly of cranberry juice – no clue why; maybe this was just a faulty bottle. After shaking the bottle vigorously for a few minutes, I applied the second coat, and it was fine. So, I’d recommend shaking this one up a bit before applying. Regardless, this is my new favorite red – love it!

Accessories: Pearlescent Love Ring Set in Silver / Clear via Forever 21.
