Smoke red is a beautiful deep red that stands out in my exceedingly large collection of red nail polish. As I get gel manicures on my hands, I only use regular polish on my toes and every time I wear it, my manicurist says it's her favorite out of all of my reds. She's never had any issues with streaking or patchiness and although there's full, even opacity in two coats, I like 3 to deepen the color just a bit more. I've never had any chipping or issues with wear time and I go 2-3 weeks between pedicures. This is the only Tom Ford nail polish I own but I do recommend it, even for those that may have had issues with his other colors because it's possible Smoke Red's formula is a bit different. It's such a classic Hollywood color that makes me feel confident when wearing it so I'll definitely continue to repurchase.
