As far as the color, all I can say is WOW!!! It's a very bright warm grape shade, similar to OPI Can You Dig It? or Zoya Yummy, without the brownish undertone. It's supposed to glow in the dark too, part of the Blacklight collection. My only gripe with CND polish is that they take foreveeeer to dry... First try: applied 3 coats to get that opaque finish (it's kinda sheer), an hour later tried to clean my face and they wrinkled (even underneath Seche Vite). Second try: waited longer in between coats, did it before bed, next morning they're still kinda sticky, but no sheet marks. I guess I'm just too impatient, I'm just not used to waiting that long for them to dry, might try them with Drip Dry next time. Nevertheless very pretty color!!!
