The color is almost blackened...but no, not really, it's just a dark rich blue-green. This is the color that my mom called "dollar bill green" - we had a car that was almost this color when I was growing up. I haven't often seen this blue-green shade in a nail polish, though, and I love it!
This shade is very similar to OPI's Cuckoo for this Color, which was released about a month after this collection came out...and had far less advance publicity, as OPI was keen that other companies not copy their ideas. Yeah...well, OPI, you fumbled it, because not only is China Glaze's polish less expensive, it's fully as gorgeous and even a tiny bit more pigmented. So nyah.
The brush in my bottle was a bit mangled, and I had to trim it before I could do a manicure. (The same thing happened with my bottle of Classic Camel. I didn't compare those brushes to other ChG brushes to see if the bristles were longer or not - to see what caused the bunching up.)
