Fun fact for you all, I'm reading Wicked right now. Of course, I read all the Oz books in fourth grade and I've seen the musical. Anywho, this is a mid-toned purple with pink/purple glitter in it, the base *seems* to be a frost. Don't quote me on that though. Now, I usually only wear polish for one day (I hate chips) but this lasted two day with only tip wear and a very minor chip on my right hand! This is China Glaze BTW.
