I don't know why this made my skin look so bright, maybe it was the contrast or there was too much sun. Regardless, these are color-accurate pictures of the color of the nail polish. It's delightful layered. I had previously tried it by itself (no pics sorry) and I was a bit underwhelmed, but now at one coat over purple is a whole other story.
