This is a nude polish with a nice shimmer in it. Up close like this you can see all the green and gold and orange shifting of the shimmer.
When you get a little further away, it's still shimmery, but much more subtle. I tends to look more golden then.
When you can't see the shimmer, it's a very nice neutral cool beige. The shimmer brings some warmth to it, and makes it wearable for cool or warm toned folks.
In low light, you can still see the shimmer a bit, and it looks more tan.
I wound up using four coats to get this coverage, and I can't really see any VNL.
I also used Cult Nails Get It On base coat, and Wicked Fast top coat for all these manis.
So, for all that I claim not to like nude polishes, Maria has turned that upside down, because I LOVE this polish. If I'm in need to a very neutral polish for anything, this is definitely going to be a go-to color.
