I bought this in Paris when on holidays as part of a reasonably large Sephora haul. This polish is a sheer lilac containing reddish-pink shimmer. It works well on fingernails as a subtle workwear shade. One coat is fine but two intensifies the colour and shimmer more. I bought it less as a polish and more as a hardener/strengthener and although Iím not sure how effective it is because I havenít been using it long enough to know yet, it does seem to last longer on my nails than regular polish so on that basis alone Iím very happy with it. When I return to a country that has Sephora stores I will be sure to repurchase.
