this color. I was expecting it to be a tad lighter and more bold, but I'm actually pleasantly surprised with the dark mauve look. It actually reminds me of the color my grandmother wore a handful of times. (Her colors were either a mauve or a flesh colored tan.)
I used the base coat and was immediately overtaken by the smell of it. I checked to box to verify that it had less chemicals, and while it does, it still has loads of acetate and other -ates in it. The smell quickly faded instead of lurking like an unwanted guest. Then, I added just one layer of Bianca. I was too tired to add a top coat. Surprisingly, I dried much quicker than I thought. I messed up the pinkie on my right hand because I'm right handed and I was a bit shaky on the application because I'd had to much black cherry cola. All in all, I'm impressed with the pigmentation, the quality of polish, and the quick-ish dry out of the bottle. Tonight, I hope to paint Mari's toes with Bailey, so I will let you know how that goes!
