Genius in the Bottle isn't exactly my type of color, but when I saw it in the store I couldn't help myself. Beautiful golden, copper and greenish tones in one bottle. *drool* I had to buy it. A downside is it looks much better in the bottle. Maybe they should have left the genius out of it. Set it free.
Catrice, Genius in the Bottle, 3 coats
Yeah, it needs 3 coats for full opacity, but I know some ladies might settle with 2 layers. The formula of this polish is great. Everything is great, except the brush. What were they thinking? Well, it's manageable but too big and weird shaped. I don't like it. I really don't.
You'll have to be careful with this polish - brush strokes are visible. That's one of the reasons why I didn't take any photos of it in my lightbox. Well, I did take them, but they're not good enough. Besides, these photos of the polish in natural lighting are more realistic.
Now this is a polish I don't mind applying 3 coats of. I'm sure we'll soon be swimming in the sea of Peridot look-alikes, but I dig this one 'cause it's easy to get (for me) and it's cheap. 10mL bottle of this golden/copper/green goodness cost me exactly €2.59. Spending €20 on a bottle of Chanel nail polish? No, thank you. It's JUST a polish.
