This is a very foolish color for fingers. Reminds me of tinker-bell polish for little girls. It looks very much like a pink polyester nightie, the kind an old lady would wear with marabou-trimmed mules. I am just not girlie enough to wear it on my toes, I'd be embarrassed. My olive skin is just tan enough that it reminds me very much of pink frosted lipstick. Maybe this sells better in Miami.

I must be in the minority. I think this is the tackiest red I've ever worn. I'm gonna go re-write my review for Friar Friar, at least that one was interesting and toe-worthy. This is just wrong on my olive skin. Chanel had a nice shimmer red called Metal Garnet and I've been looking for a replacement. This is like poppy colored, some hot pink-red thing. It went on thin and streaky …Read more

I'd love to crank the ratings up on this one. Sometimes a whisper is more powerful than a shout. This is an opaque, flat purdy neutral pink. I'm a medium olive complexion and most beige neutrals look like bandaids or basecoat on my fingertips. This stuff is fantastic, very chi chi french. Its pinky but in the way nailbeds and red head's naughty bits are.

This is so weird, I get a strawberry shortcake doll smell. I've been looking for it forever. I'll have to wear it a bit more. For the moment, it is just a curiosity, not something I have the urge to grab and annoint myself with on a regular basis.

If the original was a fragrance that would choke bystanders, this one kicks and bites them. I was angry at myself all day wearing this and couldn't figure out why. Ginger and Dr. Pepper but missing the sweet thickness of either, just sharp and effervescent. Like a sharp stick in the eye.

Mmmmmm. Oiled English tack compared to the Russian boot lick of Cuir de Russie. Polite and charming, not half as sharp as the Cuir. Definately nice for all-over spritzing.

Blech! I'm sniffing at it, trying to enjoy the spices but keep getting choked by the nasty fatty sugary slime. Its as if a snail crawled on my arm and left a trail of stale buñuelos.

I think this is now discontinued. I have this in the home fragrance burner oil. It came with a warmer disc you put on your lightbulb. The thing was way vintage, with King Edward written under the royal seal instead of Queen Lizzie. So, on an insert it says "place the ASBESTOS ring..." Yikes! Anyway, I just thought I'd share. Smells wonderful, and I'm usually a harsh critic of …Read more
