I had the hardest time capturing this color! And it's more of a winter color perfect for autumn but I'm trying to swatch polishes as I purchase them to cut down on untrieds. This color is a violet quartz shimmer with beige undertones. I'm the worst at describing colors so YES! that is straight of the Essie website. I originally went in looking to purchase turquoise & caicos because the gurus I watch on YouTube have been raving about it and I thought i ought to own it, but this color caught my eye instead the gold shimmer was like a tractor beam, it was a two coater and formula and dry time was good. This polish is from the 2008 winter collection.
