I love the packaging, it's a really great size and shape to store, and there's something special about the 'double lid' with the bird on the inner lid. In terms of this particular shade I think it's quite unique, and really pretty. When I saw all the colour options I had to pick the one I hadn't seen other brands do. Application is pretty straightforward, I find the brush thinner than most I've used, but I didn't find that helped or hindered me so I was relatively indifferent towards that aspect. Generally speaking I'm satisfied as long as something like that doesn't make the task more difficult, which is the case here. The major downside was the almost immediate chipping! Even with base and top coat I experienced tip wear and corners missing from the moment it dried. Really quite disappointing for a more expensive brand!
This is a great polish, the shade is really unique, no real dupe out there for this. Because it has glitter in it, it has long staying power although that can make it a bit hard to get off but not any worse than other glitter polishes. If you glop on this polish it can get really thick, but multiple thin layers build up to a black base with magenta, gold, blue and green sparkles.
I'm a HUGE fan of Aston Martins and this polish just reminds me of all those awesome Le Mans photos floating around the internet. It's just one more way to be closer to my dream car (and James Bond ;-) At $14, it's pretty pricey but if you love the car or the shade as much as I do, its a steal. British Racing Green did chip a little but it was more of a top coat problem than the polish's fault.
This is my absolute FAVORITE red polish! Out of all of my BL polishes this one performs the best for me. I get up to 7 days of wear with no chipping and little to no tip wear. I don't notice any streaking in my application and it applies opaque for me in 2 coats (some may prefer 3).
