I loved the color of this nail polish when I first got it. I thought it was edgy and unique; kind of like Sephora's Metro Chic, but more purple. Since I was on a kick of that smokey purple-gray color (I've been using MAC Shale eyeshadow for the past few days nonstop), I decided to pick up this polish when MAC launched it.
Now the color just seems sort of blah (might be my skin tone: NC30. i think it'd look more flattering on paler skin tones..), and the formula is awful! I don't know if you can tell in the photos, but the nail polish will apply streak-free and near perfect looking and then once it dries, i look in the sun or outdoors and there are random spots that are sheerer where it looks i barely polished when i did.
Because of that, i would not recommend this.
