China Glaze’s IDK

While the product promo pic and the description make this sound like it has a deeper purple base, it's actually a nice mid-lilac a bit similar to OPI's DS Diamond. (The Tronica color-match for IDK is Gamer Glam - but the holographic effect is sparser, so you won't see the holographic rainbow.) Like all of the OMG polishes, this does tend to chip easily and the holographic effect is severely muted by any kind of topcoat. Still, if you love the true-holographics, this is an excellent color. I'm glad I finally broke down and got IDK.
