Blue. Red when used will often require heat to get loose.

Blue locktite, If you use red you will need a torch to remove the part.

I have a bottle of crazy fire orange fingernail polish that the wife got and didnt like. I use it to seal Rem 700 trigger screws after adjusting. I can tell later if it was my work, someone else's or tampered with.
