I can't recall the exact price of this but it was super cheap. Tiny bottle so it may have cost just a buck (Canadian) or so. The things I like about it are the tiny bottle/brush, and the amazing colour. Love the colour! It's like the perfect oxblood. However, the rest is not good news. The colour is so so streaky. After two coats I still have streaks and I don't have the patience to do another. The smell is so much stronger than any other polish I own. And the drying time is ridiculous. I applied this at about 9pm. Went to sleep after midnight. When I woke up my nails were all sheet textured. Grrrrrr. Seriously! After more than 3 hours it does this? No thanks.
Dead ringer for Essie Bordeaux but with not as nice a formula. 3 coats needed for full streak free coverage, but an excellent substitute in a pinch. Picked it up in Europe when my Bordeaux was peeling. Looks much browner in the bottle, but on the nail is exact dupe.
