Today I have Plum Sorbet, a "magenta with purple shimmer" from the Blooming with Color collection. Yes, you've seen this same color before with Color Club Mrs. Robinson or China Glaze Purple Panic for the most part... This is a non-neon version for sure.
I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and a top of Seche Vite. The formula was pretty spot on. Salon Perfect is also produced by A.I.I., the company who owns China Glaze.
Here in the sun, you can see that this is fully opaque polish, in just 2 coats! The purple shimmer isn't as pronounced as I had hoped - I was looking for more of a duochrome effect, but it's just not there.
Here in the shade, this color really stands out against my skin, which I really like! I had let my nails grow a bit since my last posting (as you can tell)... I hate having unshaped nubbins now - looks so unprofessional to me! I actually had tried squaring off my nails myself, but I still need help (as you can see on my pinky).
Indoors with the flash - again, the shimmer isn't completely there, but you can see it a bit on the middle finger. For $3, this was a great polish! It's a little on the smaller size, but still fits comfortable on the hand.
The black cap is plastic, and actually a false cap (like many others in this style) but I don't recommend taking it off to polish - the cap that holds the brush is no wider than your finger width, and makes it awkward to hold during polishing. So, keep the black cap on!
Because this was an exclusive line, it's going to be hard to find these for sale now. You can see if there are any on a shelf in your Wal-Mart, but they were only in 1,700 stores and only during May.
