I had just recently picked up Red Carpet Manicure Vip Access………it’s a very dark blue with a subtle blue shimmer. Application was ok, I had to keep shaking the bottle because it would thicken and become streaky, though the color did even out with 2 coats. On the plus side there was no shrink back. I stamped using an image from the Moyou Princess collection # 13 plate. I stamped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Vigorous Violet and added some Swarovski gems.
