I got this nail lacquer as part of the 2017 Limited Edition: Time to Dazzle holiday box, and I have to say, though there were lots of lovely and fun items in that box, this alone made it worth the price of purchase for me. This truly may be the most perfect red nail polish I've ever used, and I have quite an extensive high-end nail polish collection, so I've tried them all. This lacquer goes on super smooth and easy and it dries quickly, and it doesn't start to feel gloppy at all out of the bottle, even after several uses. It does such a nice job of maintaining that freshly-opened flow and silky feel. I usually prefer to use two coats of any polish, just out of habit, but I've found that I can get by with just one coat of this one, always, and it still lasts for over a week without chipping or looking dried out and dull. It keeps a brilliant shine forever. Yes, this is a very expensive bottle of lacquer, and is even on the high-end for someone like me, who is used to spending more for her polish, but I would definitely spend this sort of money again for a lacquer like this, based on the high quality and single layer use - it is a HUGE bottle that will last me forever! I really hope Birchbox will carry more colors of this brand in the future!
