Like other reviewers have said, it really does look just like the ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz! This is the nicest glitter polish I've ever used - it goes on really smoothly, the glitter is evenly distributed, and it lasted about 4 days on my toes before chipping (no top coat used). I've touched up the minor chips and it still looks as shiny as ever!

By the way, here is a round-up of the Ruby Slipper nail polishes I've tried:
China Glaze - Ruby Pumps
The ultimate in red glitter. Gorgeous ruby red with red glitter aplenty. Perfect ChG application, as always.
Color Club - Ruby Slipper
This is more red glitter with red nail polish added to it, rather than the other way around. A metric assload of glitter.
Avon - Nailwear - Ruby Slipper
Beautiful neutral red with loads of fine red and silver microglitter, making it a tip colour for the less daring.
Maybelline - Wet Shine Diamonds - Cherry Carats
A pinker red with pretty red glitter. Not quite as blingy as ChG's, but perfect if you were wanting a pinker red.
Sally Hansen - Magical Nail Makeup - Ruby Slipper
Do not be fooled. This is peeeeeeenk. But with holographic glitter, so it's all good.
Essie - Ruby Slippers
Probably the worst of the lot, even though SH's isn't even red. This is like a failed batch of ChG Ruby Pumps, before they discovered the fab formula #409 that became ChG Ruby Pumps. Essie's glitter is haphazard and doesn't spread out evenly. I love Essie, but this was a bummer.
