Just like the other reviewers, I was surprised that the deep raspberry-lavender in the bottle did not translate on the nail. 2 coats and it's a transparent corally-pink with lavender shimmer. Too much like other colors I own. However, it goes on smoothly, hardens up reasonably fast (not as fast as OPI) and makes a good neutral nail or a base for a French manicure. It's a bit darker but very similar to Sally Hansen's Sheerly Opal that comes in the French Manicure set.
I agree with most reviewers that the color that shows up on your nails really does not match what you see in the bottle. However, this polish has turned out to be one of my favorites. It is a sheer pinky/mauve that looks great on cool toned pale pink. Since it has so many negative reviews, I think I better stock up before it is discontinued!
A cool lilac pink with a subtle silver shimmer that takes 3 coats to look opaque. I would prefer to only have to do two coats, but it's such a feminine, pretty color that I guess I'll suffer for it! It's not too dark or bright, almost a neutral, and goes with everything, so it's very wearable. Like most polishes, a good base coat extends wear. I am not sure I'd buy again, there are many similar colors out there and then there's that 3 coat issue....so I probably would not.
I really, truly tried to like this polish, but but the love connection just was not there. The true color (pink) does not match the bottle (purplish). If the bottle color had been true to form, I would have loved it.It also chipped immediately after I finished applying my top coat. I received alot of compliments on the color, but I just could not like it...so I found it another home.
