Its not as great as Shiseido in terms of glide ability and chip resistant power but the color is perfect! a sexy deep black red that is suitable for all skintones and suits warm (browns/beige) and cool(navy/black) colored shoes. Very sexy and mysterious. PPP,MMM &LLL look vampy while CCC,GGG, and DDD look sultry. Lasts three weeks on toes and 4-7days on hands (depends how restless you are).
