REVIEW: L'Oreal Color Riche Nail Polish in 403

The colour on my nails for the past week is from L'Oreal. Funnily it is the first L'Oreal nailpolish I have bought (and not been gifted) and the only one I own currently (I cleared out the rest, they were ancient)
I picked this up on a whim and I am quite happy I did.

Price: 225INR

It is a red nail polish but with strong pink undertones and there for it comes off as quite an elegant colour on the nails. It isn't a bright red because of the pink undertones.
It applies streak free and the consistency is not too watery but not too thick.
Small bottle, contains 5 ml and has a golden cap. The applicator wand is not too long and some may find it a bit short. I like the short wand, it gives me better control.
You will need two coats to get a true colour.
It chips easily if there is only one coat. It chipped on the tips within a day with just one coat. With two coats it stays without the tips chipping for about 3-4 days. Then again that's all most nail polishes last on my fingers.
It gives a very polished put together look. Not exactly a summer day kind of colour, but maybe a summer wedding kind of colour.
I find the price a little steep for just 5 ml of a nailpolish that can be bought in a drugstore. But then again, I guess L'Oreal is the higher end of drugstore products.

To summarise

What I like about this product:
The colour is very different from reds I have seen.
Streak free application
True colour seen in just two coats.

What I don't like about this product:
The price. I would have bought a few more colours if it was a bit less.

Have you guys tried this shade or any others from this range?

Do let me know your thoughts.
