By the way, I SWEAR I'm not this pale in real life. I think the combination of my Ott-Lite and the dark polish sent me to Paleville. I only recently got this (I know, right?!), after seeing how wildly popular it is on MUA. It's kind of the Queen Bee of vampies, and I can see why. It's a blackened plum with fine reddish shimmer. It's dark, but definitely not black. I'll have to see how it looks under the fluorescent lighting at work to get a better feel for it. I'm sure application would've been great, if it weren't for the fact that I wound up with a wonky brush. I had to surgically remove two bristles from it that were saluting me, and then the bottom of it was still pretty frayed out. *Sigh*
But overall, it's a great color - chic, and I liked it more than I thought I was going to. It's also super easy to find, as it's part of the core collection. So, if you're like me, and have almost no vampies, this is a great place to start!
