This colour is a pretty plum dahlia with red undertones. I don't love purples that lean pink on myself, but this is actually really nice.
What makes this polish spectacular? It's awesome formula. It's very pigmented and goes on completely opaque in ONE coat. But it's not thick and difficult to work with. It flows onto the nail nicely and is easy to control.
I think my will broke down to buy this one when I did my aqua comparison. I loved every single one of those polishes and when I placed an Essie order this one kind of jumped in my cart. Look at that gorgeous teal blue orchid!
This one too had a great formula. It was nice and smooth, easy to control and not too thick. It self-levels really well (this is huge for me!) and was opaque in two coats. The one minor downside was it stained my skin/cuticle around the nail when I went to remove it.
