Finally a true blue-based red. Alas, Pirate is not a straight creme, but most of you will be happy to find out it's a crelly. Crellies(jellyish creme) are great, I just don't happen to be one of those people who have the patience for application. Most people love them.
However, this one IS pretty.
In an attempt to eliminate VNL (visible nail line) it took me 4 coats - 3 regular coats and a 4th thick one. And as you can see in the close-up, I still have a little VNL.
Application was still smooth, but I am going to have a bit of clean-up, as I usually do with jellies for some reason.
And some more in different lighting...

in the swatches!

So...what do you think? Will you be getting Pirate?
**Just as a note, I never use flash for any of my photos.
UPDATE: I took my bottle of Pirate back and exchanged it for a new bottle after reading that people are getting great coverage in 2 coats. I will update my review when I try it out to see if it's really different.
