Yes, I agree that 18 bucks is a little much. But in MY humble opinion, this is just about the most beautiful pink in the world. from the first time i used it, i was in love. My good friend, who for 3 years resisted 'lighter' colors and only wore reddish black on her toes, begged me to write a review after she borrowed it from me. Shes a new person after this one, and is going out to buy her own.
The color is not really that cherry. When you think cherry, you think dark red. This is a medium pink, like the color of Barbie's cheeks, but with a whole lot of shimmer. Not glitter, but sort of hologram greens and yellows. all in all, it'll girl-ify even a trolls feet. its just beautiful!
