THE COLOR... On Your Knees is a cinnamon-infused red. Brownish muted wine red. The bottle contains swirly shimmer of a gold-gold (not a yellow gold). It is a dark shade of red, meaning neither midtoned cherry red nor vampy red. On your nail, the color is very close to what you see in the bottle--save the shimmer. When shimmer is visible on the bottle but not on the nail, where does it go? Does the slight hint of metallic wine red give you a clue? In my opinion, the shimmer sort of fades into the depths of the color, giving a metallic cast to the shade. Lovely design, however, very warm toned.
THE APPLICATION ... no complaints. Two coats. The first coat was pretty even, and the second covered completely. Pigmented colors like deep intense wines sometimes take a little bit of care to go on right and I cleaned up little touches onto the cuticle on about 4 nails. Color smoothly landed on my basecoat (and I did a base of Nailtek II Foundation so this good application is expected).
THE WEAR... going on day three, I had no chips and the tiniest bit of wear. I felt rushed to try another color to move untrieds through my stash and so I left it at two full days with no noticable tip wear at all.
Overall, highly recommended of warm toned ladies who aren't bothered by another warm deep/dark red/burgundy to their collection. Again, this color doesn't want to be a vampy and it isn't. It doesn't want to be a red and it isn't. It knows exactly what it wants and I think if I can find a clone for it, I'll list it here (but I suspect NYC Wing It Wine could be close).

It took me a few days of wearing this on my toes for this polish to grow on me - it isn't immediately striking or flashy, and I have to admit, it really isn't too unique in the polish world. What it is though, is very well done. It is similar-ish to OPI Changing of the Garnet, but where CotG is brownish-red on me, this has a much stronger red wine color. I don't see purple clearly, but it is a deep and sexy red. There is something very classic, tasteful and ... sexy about it. I definitely think it is a keeper.

I'm falling in love with the quality of China Glaze polishes more & more. I've not heard of this brand prior to MUA nail board, now it seems I can't get enough of it.
In the bottle it seems it would be close to OPI's Changing of the Garnet. Once applied, it more of a plummy wine color. It's more purple to it. It's nice & shimmery, too. This was a total relief as I was coming to believe I keep buying the same color in different in packaging. With 2 coats, I got a nice deep & even color. If I ever use it up, I'd buy it again.
