This is a base of Poshe and Essie Beam Up and 2 coats of Peri-Wink-Le no top coat, admire that shiny. This is a periwinkle cream, no shimmer, no glitter, just a straight up cream. I don't know whether to call this a bluish lavender, or a lavenderish blue, both descriptions would be accurate, but I guess looking at it on my nails I would have to say it is a bluish medium lavender. The formula was good, not too thick but not so thin it was running into my cuticles, it went where I wanted it to. The first coat was a little streaky, but the second coat self-leveled nicely and solved the streaky problem.
I really like this color, and am so glad that I finally just buckled down and bought it. It's good for every season of the year, it's a good staple color to have in your collection. It also makes a good background for many different types of nail art. I put a coat of inm Northern Light on top of this and then a coat of Seche Vite. There was no sun so I took a picture inside with my flash.
