I used my Seche Vite basecoat and my Northern Lights Quick Dry topcoat with this beautiful... well, the name says it all: it's a crystalline plum. Sort of violet with pink undertones, and it looks especially cool with my holographic top coat over it. It's not too dark like many of my purplish nail polishes. It's sort of a mid-toned violet. I'm really loving this, and it was only 96 cents!
