This beauty is a true chameleon. Like most very foily polishes, there is very little color to the base, just a mass of glittery particles that took me three coats to cover completely- better application might have needed 2. It's difficult to say what the true color is, because it changes with every hand movement and lighting change. Inside in halogen lighting, it's a deep red-pink-copper with gold, green and pink sparkles. In daylight it's much lighter and more golden. Then there's the duochrome effect, red copper to gold to even a bit of green. Application was easy, smooth with one layer of topcoat.
