This is a really great dark teal shimmer with an almost metallic finish. It's not frosty at all. I would always see it and never buy it because I thought it looked really frosty in the bottle. The application is really nice for a cheap polish, it is almost opaque with one coat and only needs a second to even out the finish. I can speak for the wear, as almost all polish wears like crap on me, but it doesn't seem to be worse than anything else. This is a must get for 1.99 if your are a lover of blue or turquoise polishes.
