Perfection Nail LacquerPerfection Nail Lacquer ($10.50 for 0.40 fl. oz. each) is described as a "smoky violet." It's a muted, gray-ish mauve with a cream finish. It was mostly opaque after two coats, and the consistency was slightly thick but workable and didn't take too long to dry down. It did dry down to a really high-gloss finish, though. China Glaze Below Deck (LE, $8.00) is darker. Zoya Jana (P, $8.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.
