Orly's witch's blue is a shimmery dark rinse jean blue. I hesitated buying it because I own so many blues: essies midnight cami, china glaze little drummer boy, and Orly's la playa. However witch's blue is unique its not as dark as little drummer boy and midnight cami and not as purple as la playa. The shimmer in the polish lifts the color to gives it a bright uniqueness. The application was fine not to thick or thin and I used 3 coats because I wanted the color in the bottle.
