Whoever came up with this stuff is a genius. It's simultaneously a muted medium purple, a festive dark green, and a chic gunmetal gray. The silver sparkle is subtle in low light but explodes in bright light. I scrubbed my shower about two hours after applying it and there wasn't a single chip or any wear. Only downside is it dries matte and eats up topcoat, but it's worth it. I've been collecting polish for decades and I've never seen anything like this.
