Please excuse the messy application. This was a serious rush job as I was trying to fly out of the door. But I live the rich bruised plum shade. A few days later it's looking a little bit shabby but I think that's more in the application as opposed to the product. In saying that, these aren't my fave varnishes when it comes to longevity. I bought this as part of a mini set on special at Boots ages ago. I love smaller sized nail varnishes. I never get through regular sized ones before they go all gloopy. This is perfect.
