The polish is decently priced and I wouldn't describe the color as violet. It's more like metallic lavender, but it can look silvery grey at times. It's pretty, but not what I expected. This is the only Cover Girl nail polish I've ever tried and I do like it.
This flashes between grey and metallic lilac depending on the light. It's prettier in the bottle. I picked this up from Target for about $3. The formula was smooth and the wear was average.
