Since I haven't been buying so much nail polish lately, I think that I can start collecting high-end brands now. I have come to a point where my stash of indies and core brands is dupey to everything else out there, so I can slowly start venturing into department store brands. The problem is, in this case, that I really like everything about it, and now I want more Guccis.
The formula was on the thick side, but manageable. The brush was not too helpful, but I was able to get two perfect coats. The application was comparable to Dior, regardless of the brush. The color payoff and gloss factor was superb. The packaging feels very luxurious, as if they weren't stingy with anything.
I got this online, from the Neiman Marcus website, because I was searching for swatches, and it was driving me crazy that I could not find any. Now, I see that the color is not like the one on the site (or even in these bottle pics), but I still like it. In real life, they look like gel nails.
