Yeah its pricey but boy are their stuff is so good!
Have been using it for the last two weeks now and the lacquer lasts much longer than the traditional brands.
Why is it 3 Free? Free of carcinogens that's why.
For that it's worth $14 to me!
Go to Ulta, they have a great set that comes with a lacquer and remover for $25. You save like $3. Well worth the price!
