The macro pictures make it look a little brush stroke-y, but it's not with a top coat on at all. This is such a vibrant, kind of lit from with-in color. I love it! It's a darker blue, which I don't have a lot of - but this is the one I reach for most often. If you make a Diamond Cosmetics order, do yourself a favor and add this color to it. Other than that, I'm gonna let these pictures speak for itself :)
Oh, and the giveaway winner was the lovely Raelena! Congrats and I hope you love your new polish!
