Essie nail colour in Apertif is THE PERFECT classic red for nails! I keep staring at my nails as Apertif simply flattering and stunning. The formula is relatively runny, but it has a pretty good consistency to give a smooth and glossy finish upon application. One generous coat of Apertif gives my nails a completely opaque look. Apertif on my nails in the above doesn't show its true colour as the photo just doesn't do it justice. Apertif appears more towards red/orange in the photo, however, it is a true bold cherry red shade. If you're looking for an elegant classical red nail colour then Apertif is the one for you.
