Doesn't quite exhibit the duochrome shift around the edges that is suggested in the bottle artwork; but this is most definitely a rich metallic purple. There was a bit of bubbling in the bottle I got, though - which was a little regrettable. Dry time went a little bit longer than I would have preferred - you can see, on one nail, where the two coats didn't quite cure all the way through and so showed some dents.

Similar enough to China Glaze's Lubu Heels - almost exactly identical, in fact, except that the base color seems closer to black than deep vampy red - that if you had a bottle (or several) of that polish, you might not see the need to get this one. The polish is good quality, it applies easily and has good coverage. It's…just…not necessarily dissimilar enough to Lubu Heels, to own several variants thereof.

A deep navy creme that's not quite blackened…but it's very dark. In direct lighting, you can tell that it's navy. In some indoor lighting, it can look like a slightly softer black. This didn't stain my nails or cuticles when I went to remove it, and the formula is thick enough that I just might be able to use this in nail stamping. (Perhaps.)
