This came in a kit and I was pretty weary about wearing it. i'm always skeptical about makeup companies who try to do nail polish. Luckily, this polish is pretty great.
It's a very retro red. It's not a deep red at all but a nice medium red. It's not exactly in your face or classic looking. As with all of their products, it's very very pinup. It's the color of red pinup girls would wear. It makes a statement regardless.
It's fairly opaque with one coat but to really solidify the color, two is best. It's very smooth and thick enough to not be runny at all. It glides on the nail. It's a matte finish but with topcoat, it has a nice shine. It's a flat color, there's no shimmer or glitter, just red.
It holds up very well. I wore it for four days and only one very minor chip on the tip. It dries quickly and is not easily smudged. It did seem to peel off unevenly on my bottom cuticle. It looked like I had painted my nails with a sharpie. This is the only reason why I didn't give it the full rating.
The brush reminds me of OPI and is very very easy to control.
It goes with anything and is appropriate for every occasion. It can give you a bit of an edge at work, be worn daily and for nights out. I love how versatile it is.
I would gladly buy more polishes from TheBalm and recommend to everyone.
