Violets Are Blue is a beautiful sky blue with shimmer. I saw this in a display with a lot of new and repromoted colors for spring so I don't know if this is actually a new shade or just a repromote with a new name. In any case, it is a really pretty blue and has some subtle shimmer throughout much in the same way their shade Cinderella does. The wear on this is actually good and I wore this for 5 days and experienced no chipping and very minimal tip wear. I was surprised considering this is only a $1.99 polish and it wore as well as my OPI's and Essie's. The formula was a bit on the thicker side and it really didn't want to go on in thin even coats, but this did have good coverage and it only took 2 coats for a beautiful rich color on my nails. Although this didn't apply as easily as a salon formula, it wore as well, and looked as good, and the price is a bargain for less than $2. Sinful Colors is a winner for me since they come in a huge range of on trend colors and once on you can't tell it's not a more expensive polish. Beautiful color, beautiful nails, and you can't beat the price!
