I think this is the first "expensive" polish I ever bought. I bought it a few years back when my nail polish obsession began. I think I paid about $18 Canadian for it. It looks so amazing on some nail blogs... when it's in a super bright light box. I feel like in real life though it's not really that amazing. It's a nice dark shimmery purple, don't get me wrong. I love how it kind of glows in the middle of the nail and is darker at the edges. But I just don't think it's stunning enough to justify paying $18. There's so many similar colors out there that sell for much less.
Formula was really good. I used 2 coats on most nails, but I did manage to get away with only 1 coat on my middle finger! :)
See the shimmer in the bottle there? It just doesn't look as amazing to me on the nail :(
What about you? Any expensive polishes that disappointed you or that you regret buying?
