This is a true neutral to cool toned plum on me. Perfect for fall. But I have a lot of lipsticks that are a similar color. I was really hoping this had more red in it.

I simply adore this polish. It is the only nail polish I have ever repurchased. If they stop making it I will die. I have pale cool toned skin and this polish looks fantastic on my hands. It is quite neutral and I think anyone could pull it off. I wear it year round. The only problem I have with it is it chips fairly quickly, but I love the color so much that I don't care.

I recently purchased this on Ebay and I love it. On my pale cool toned skin it looks like a dusty raisin color. It is a beautiful neutral color that is perfect for autumn.

This showed up more of a dusty lavender on me. It is a very pretty neutral color. Like all of my China Glaze polishes it is long lasting. I am sure I will buy this again when I use it up.

This color looks lovely with tan skin. But sadly it is very streaky. It takes at least 3 coats for it to even out. Will NOT repurchase!

I bought this to wear to a Kentucky Wildcats basketball game. Go Cats! The color was the perfect metallic royal blue. I started with a coat of OPI matte nail envy, then 2 coats of this and followed it with a coat of Seche Vite top coat. It looked fab but I did have trouble with chipping. It lasted about one day before the chipping slowly started. Overall, its a great color and I am glad I bought …Read more

Watermelon is a nuetral to warm pink shade, although quite subtle. In other words, you cannot go by the color of the applicator. It shows up differently on the lips. This has a very pleasant ultra smooth texture on the lips but a not so pleasant minty taste to it. I might try this again sometime but in a different shade. I prefer much cooler toned colors.

This shade is not even the remotest shade of blue. It is a glittery shimmery silver color that applies quite sheer. Very nuetral. Would look great with a variety of clothing colors. Sadly, Maybelline's parent company tests on animals.

If I could only own one nail polish this would be the one I would choose. It is simply divine. I wear it all the time now. It is the most nuetral shade that looks great with everything. It is a light to mid toned brown color with high shimmer. It looks like glass; it is so shiny. Very sophisticated. Lasts FOREVER. It is a little hard to remove but its supposed to last a long time. If it were easy …Read more

Not for the faint at heart. VERY dark brown with shimmer. Almost goth looking. Not impressed.
