Metallic Purple is kinda deceiving. From the bottle, it looks like a metallic with a silver shimmer. Once it's applied it looks a slight bit darker than the bottle, but finishes sorta matte. Once a top coat (I used China Glaze Fast Forward) is applied.....OMG. THEN it really looks metallic.
I had a difficult time photographing this polish as you'll see below, it wanted to show as blue. In some lighting it looked like a really blue based grape color and in other lighting it looked like a slightly more red grape color.

I probably could've gotten away with 1 coat of Metallic Purple, but went with 2 to be safe. I think I might try stamping with this to see how well it works, but not yet. :D
