Honeybee Gardens Nail Enamel Vintage Merlot -- 0.5 fl oz
not as dark as pictured
it's like a medium merlot, but I still like it, it still has the desired effect, but it's more red than ruddy brown. I just did my nails with it two days ago, so I can't tell you how long it lasts. You'll definately need 3 coats for the color to be even.

I love this color and I like the fact that this nail polish has low toxicity. I think it gets a rating of 2 on ewg.org. However, It chips off way too easily IMO. I put it on one day, double coat and top coat, and the next day it had chipped off of one entire nail, and was starting to chip off of 3 other nails.

I like it! Good color
I like this polish especially that it is non toxic etc. IT does come off pretty easily in wear and tear but I find it no problem to reapply. It is also difficult to get off with polish remover but again its worth it to me. Just wish there were more color options. Color is dark, deep (blood) red.

Beautiful Dark Purple Colour!
Okay, first of all, this is natural nail polish, kids. It is not going to be as durable as the more toxic brands available. However, considering the fact that it can be removed with rubbing alcohol and has no scent whatsoever, I think it deserves an awesome rating. True, it lasts a lot longer on toes than fingers, but if my options are to repaint with this stuff or poison myself systemically with more long lasting (and far more toxic stuff), I'm going to choose the former every time. It's a really, really, really dark shade of purple, which totally rocks, and it dries shiny rather than dull.

Pros and Cons
I am excited that Honeybee has come out with a nail polish that is free of formaldehyde and pthalates and is nontoxic, unlike the other commercial brands. However, the durability of the polish is not great. After just a few days, I noticed that it began peeling, which was annoying. If you don't mind that, then it's a great polish. As for me, I will probably go back to using No Miss nail polish, which is still free of the above two toxic ingredients, but lasts forever.
