Plus, for a clean nail polish it’s on the more affordable end. However, this one turned out to be a miss for me. Maybe it was the light color I chose? The wand is much wider than traditional nail polish, which I actually liked. But it didn’t seem to go on very smooth, it felt very thick, and it took a lot of coats for the color to look right to me.
