I love this polish. It really lasts too and stays shiny. It looks good on my fair skin. I tend to be a Fiji girl and just bought this on impulse. It was on a display with a few dark colors for fall. I thought, "Oh, dark is in just great!, that metallic one is the only one I can stand,hmm, maybe I should try it". I wasn't at all sure about it. I brought it to my next pedicure and I decided I love it. I have looked at other metallics and this is great. Not just metallic, but purple too. I think it is pretty dark on me, but I think it's beautiful. Thanks, Essie!
