This is from the OPI Professional line, not their regular line. This truly is a great/quality nail polish! I'm obsessed with purple and this is a beautiful royal purple shade with a slight blue tint (if you move your fingers you can see the blue). It's not really matte, since there is sparkle, but it's super fine sparkle and not tacky looking at all. I'd say it's on the metallic side. Anyway, the brush is great, it has an awesome shiny finish, and I think is comparable to OPI. So pretty, can't wait to try the other OPI pro shade I bought, "Green with Envy." They go BOGO and there are always those Ulta coupons, might as well try it!
