I almost cursed Make Up Stores nail polish “Petra” when I first bought it before travelling to France. I was stressed, doing a million things at the same time and I screwed my freshly painted nails up several times doing whatever it was I was doing. It was the formulas fault! Of course it was not the fault of the formula, - it was me stressing and PMS:ing like a vicious little vampire trying to pack and lace boots and what not, all at the same time. Go figure. Anyways, I'm going to be an honest grown up and admit that this polish is actually quite good. Clear, bright red (perfect for both Christmas and summer) and easy to work with. Good buy.
