-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Violet Delight is a sheer, opalescent purple with pretty red glitter. It is rather sheer on it's own so the best way to get the color to show up is to apply this over another purple polish.

Price and Availability
$3.99 on Cherry Culture. Never seen these in store, but if you guys know if they are sold in stores, let me know :D

Product Review
This is the first time I try these LASplash polishes, and I am on the fence.
Here are my thoughts...

PROS:
~Fair price, specially since Cherry Culture often has sales.
~I like the way the bottle looks. It reminds me of the YSL polishes.
~The color is really cool and unique. Purple with red glitters :)
~The glitters are not chunky at all. They smooth out nicely

CONS:
~The square cap is really hard to open. It hurt my hand when I first tried to open it :(
~The color is really sheer. It would take 4 coats to get it fully opaque
~A little hard to remove because of the glitter in the polish
~watery consistency, hence the sheerness.

Swatches
*I have 1 coat of Chanel's 'Paradoxal' and 2 coats of Violet Delight. You can use any base color you want, but I recommend using purple polishes to bring out the purple in Violet Delight.
*Also, I took these pictures a while ago, hence the very uneven nails. Excuse that! Hehe...


Red glitter Galore!~

Verdict
I do like the color of this polish over a base color, but on it's own it not that great. I have no patience for polishes that require 4+ coats. But it does work as a layering polish, so I have to give it some credit. And for the price, it is really not all that bad.

Rating: 6.5/10
Recommend?
If you are a person who lover to layer, then I recommend this polish.
But if you are a one polish, 1 or 2 coat kind of person, then definitely skip this. There are better fish in the sea.
