    Is it possible for only one text box?

    Yes, it's quite feasible to apply text color (and other styling changes) to just certain text boxes. That's what CSS's ID selectors are for. For instance, in this demo entered the text of just the second text box is red. That was accomplished by going into the designer

    and clicking the CSS tab

    and then double-clicking the second text box. That action added an empty rule to the tab's work area (indicated by the second arrow) for me to enter a declaration of color: red;, as shown below:

    #input_3 {
       color: red;

    Since the ID of the second field is input_3 (please see this guide) the rule affects just that field.

    If you need further help with this, we'd be happy to provide it.
