finger paints "whose hue?"

I grabbed this polish because it was on clearance at Sally's.. I've never actually heard of the brand but Whose Hue? seemed like an interesting color. In the bottle it was a dark purplish red with hints of gold, but on the nail it looks much different.

I included two pictures so you can see what it looks like from different angles; on the left is what it looked like most of the time-- deep purple with a little bit of red undertone-- but on the right is what it would look like from other angles-- more reddish but almost a chocolatey brown, and with the goldish undertones showing through more (and sometimes it looked completely brown with no sparkle whatsoever!). I was wholeheartedly unimpressed with this polish at first, but after wearing it for a few days I grew to like it a bit more. I do have a soft spot for darker nails and this was actually kind of interesting to look at.

Overall this isn't my favorite polish, but it isn't that bad. It wore pretty well, too-- it didn't chip as easily as I had expected it to, and it has a nice shine to it. In these pictures I believe it was three coats, but you could easily get away with two or even one.
