When it comes to polish, I'm a bit snobby. I only buy OPI and Essie-rarely do I venture to the drugstore. These were on clearance at Walgreen's for just under $2.00, I think from somewhere around $8.00. The majority of the colors looked shimmery to me, but the pretty kind of shimmery that isn't tacky. I picked 2 up last week and fell in love. Wonderfully easy to apply and no major chipping. I went back tonight and picked up a few more. At this price, these are a steal. The quality is really up there, and the bottles are very pretty. I'm assuming these are being discontinued? It's a shame, b/c they're really nice. If you're near a Walgreen's, I'd say take a look at these. You can't even get maybelline or cover girl nail polish for $2.00 these days, so these are truly a deal.
