To my upset, the purple I thought I was seeing must have been a trick by my monitor. What a shame! The color is still very nice and the chrome finish on this polish is one of the better ones I've seen. I was just a little let down due to my inaccurate expectations. Aww well.
This is two coats of Melanie and one coat of Seche Vite. Application was very smooth and I didn't have any issues with dragging or excessive brush streaks being visual.
Overall this polish was very nice. It faded relatively quickly but I'm sure you could keep up the color with new top coat every other day.
Have you tried any of the Julep Metallics yet? Do you have a favorite chrome polish?
