iVillage just covered this topic a few months ago.
"Red = You're Passionate
“Any shade of red boldly says that you are energized and passionate about life! You're full of purpose and love to make things happen. Choose a shade with an orange undertone for a more playful look, then put on the charm with a deeper shade."
I am feeling so red today. I am entering a new career and I feel confident. The red helps bring out the confidence.
To be perfectly polished:
1. Clean old polish off nails
2. Brush on a clean nail protectant (like Wet n Wild Wild Shine). Let dry for 2 minutes.
3. Brush on polish of choice (like Spolied in Slumming On Sunset). Let dry for 2 minutes.
4. Brush on clear top coat (like Sally Hansen Insta-Dri). Let dry for 2-5 minutes.
