I can't figure out why I'm not madly head over heels in love with this polish. I normally love dark warm colours and thought for sure I would love this. But I have put it on twice and taken it right back off. I don't hate it, but its not living up to my expectations. I still give it four stars because, regardless of my strange aversion to it, the colour is beautiful the formula is great, applies in two easy coats.
I was expecting it to be brown with a hint of shimmer - it's all that and more. I wore it with a plum top and it looked like the polish was plum . . yet next to brown it looked brown. Love the shimmer is great - very subtle and appropriate for office/day time wear (and I'm pretty conservative when it comes to shimmer) Nice texture, goes on well (I need 2 coats as I'm not that even with strokes)and comes off without any fuss.
