Gorgeous polish. I received this in a swap, so I'm not sure of the cost, but I do believe these are comparable to other mid-end polishes. This is a beautiful, goldish-sheened nude cream beige. It's actually not too shimmery at all, and the finish is nearly opaque with just one coat.
i would describe this as an almond-creme color. Very beautiful, polished and chic. This reminds me a lot of a more wearable beige than Essie's Bags to Riches (can seem a bit too yellow IME). It's creamy and yet, it has that sheen that livens it up.
I've seen comparisons to OPI Sand in my Suit, but to me, they are very different. SIMS is just more goldy, and it seems to be more sheer. There is no almond-creamyness to SIMS, no polished/chic factor.

I highly recommend this color. The only warnings I might give is that my bottle seemed just a tad thick, but that could have been due to age (not sure if swapper has had for a while?)...and you could easily thin it with great success (I plan to).

The bottle is so cute, too! ; )
