The moment I saw this color I had to get it. Red is classy and this color literally spells glamourrrrrrrrrr!!

Its ultra-glamorous shade and it’s a must have for everyone’s vanity. The color of the varnish is deep apple red and not the zhang red like in retro movies. It brings out a classy look and looks very feminine. It makes my hand look more fair and feminine than they are. They look super sexy when I apply this color. So gals with long nails you must have this shade.

Packaging: The nail polish comes in a glass cylindrical bottle with a simple black cap. The color name and the code is written on the top and this makes it easy to spot it from the stash

Performance: The performance is amazing. They are affordable and the quality of the brush and lacquer are extremely good. The consistency is a bit on liquidly side that helps easy application and spreading it evenly. On top of it was quick drying. The finish is smooth and glossy. Even after 2 days of wearing it the glossy effect is still there which I did not expect from this nail paint. So Yay!!!
