To describe this polish in one word would be "AMAZING". It has silver and golden-bronze glitter which is beautiful in the charcoal base. I only applied two coats and couldn't stop staring at my nails. At some angles it appears more silver and more bronze at other angles. I'm not sure how they pulled this one off at such an affordable price but it's definitely a must have. This is my first Hard Candy but I will be going back for more!
