I bought Essie's stylenimocs because I wanted a dark slightly blue green. It was too dark and just looked black. I saw this on Sonia's web site and thought I would give it a try. It is perfect. It is dark but it it's obviously green. It has a slight blue tint so it's not Christmas tree green. Its very sophisticated. It barely has a shimmer. Just enough to keep it from being dull. It covered really well in 1 coat and is perfect in 2 coats. I can't vouch for wear time because I just painted my nails but since I change my polish every 2-3 days anyway it doesn't matter how fast it chips. I will repurchase.
