I LOVE this color. Purple is my favorite color and pretty much my favorite thing to wear and surround myself with in general, and when I found this color during my spare MakeupAlley browsing time I knew I had to have it. When I bought it, I discovered that it's the exact same shade of purple as my room, which is the most wonderful coincidence! I was thrilled, until I put it on.

Sinful Colors doesn't usually disappoint me in this way, and so I'm still half-thinking that maybe I was a bit too heavy-handed with the brush while painting my nails and skyping my best friend simultaneously. But the formula was just odd. It was runny but strangely thick, and it seemed to pile up on my nails in a way that most nail polishes don't. Again, this might have been due to distracted application but I don't know. It went on a bit messy and took quite a bit of time to dry, then required touch-ups the next day. Even now I'm considering redoing my left hand because it looks a bit lumpy and uneven.

Another thing to note is that I feel like this color complements some skin tones better than others. It looked bright in the bottle, but I feel like it doesn't stand out on my medium-dark skin as much as it should. I feel like it would look stunning on people with especially pale or dark skin, but since my skin is a golden-brown/tan, it falls smack dab in the middle and isn't as noticeable.

Despite all of this, my love for the color purple still reigns, and this shade is very beautiful. A lavender-berry purple creme that's either warm or cool depending on your skin tone. I'll definitely be wearing it again and repurchasing it because purple. But if I wasn't particularly fond of this shade and color, I wouldn't bother.
