This nail polish is a deep blue with blue shimmer. It is gorgeous and glowy. However, it is not as shimmery as in the bottle. It is a bit darker in real life most of the time and you do not see the shimmer particles as much unless you look at it up close. From for away, it just looks glowy. I was a bit disappointed that it did not show up how it does in the bottle, but I still think it's a great dark shimmery blue! I used 2 coats.
