I did my nails for the first time tonight with the holiday red np & it is super gorgeous on. The shade is a gorgeous dimensional deep red with golden shimmer. The bottle is so beautiful but I hated hated the brush & handle top..ugh, the worse EVER for application!! The brush is thick & the top gold knob is hard to hold on to. The dents for holding were opposite the correct sides of the brush. It was so hard to use it in my left hand. ugh!
