General Effing Leia. Nerd Lacquer describes this as, “a muted plum base with a regal and complex silvery-green shimmer”. The website shows a beautiful purple polish. My bottle is purple but has a lot of gray in it. When I was putting it on last night it looked just gray. Now the shimmer really makes it come alive though! Today in the sun I saw a lot more purple, but still not like the Nerd website. I googled the polish to see if I maybe got a bad bottle, but the other couple bloggers photos look just like what my nails look like most of the time.

Formula was thick but manageable. The brush is kind of mop like in my bottle but I read that she is changing her brush, so I think from now on they will have much nicer brushes. Even though this is not what I was really expecting from the website photo, I still love this polish! I used 2 coats plus 2 coats topcoat for the photos today.
