I picked this up the other week after hearing about them on the blogosphere. In the end I chose the shade 'Prickly Pear' a lovely lilac colour for £3.99. I thought this would be quite a thick formula but the first coat was very sheer and not at all shiny. It eventually took 3 coats for the opacity I wanted dried to a high shine finish. When it did eventually dry that is! I found it was tacky for quite a while afterwards and I woke up with the dreaded duvet marks, spoiling the shine somewhat! Ultimately whilst they were left shiny they were no more shiny than some other polishes I've used, but I love the colour and reckon I will wear it quite a bit.
