I bought this in store in an antique bronze finish, even though this nickel finish would have been my preference. But since my experience in receiving mirrors shipped from Walmart has been atrocious (all shattered!), I figured buying in store was best. And this mirror was exactly what I needed! I have terrible distance vision, bad enough that I can clearly see my face in the mirror over the bathroom sink. And now that I'm getting older, I've entered reading glasses/bifocals territory as well. As such, I can't put on makeup unless my face is just a couple inches from the mirror. Until now, that's meant standing right up against a full-length mirror or leaning waaaaay over the counter. So I've been looking not just for a good countertop mirror, but one that stands tall enough that I don't have to hunch over. Fortunately, I'm pretty short, and this tall countertop mirror has enough height that I can now see my face clearly enough to put on my makeup in my own bathroom. Yay!
