It's a deep blue, almost black in color. Not quite navy, not metallic but it still holds some of these qualities. The shimmer that it has is very slight and doesn't feel rough to the touch like some shimmers can. This polish applied easily, dried quickly (I have a coat of Seche Vite as a topcoat). I am in love with the little bottles because I never use an entire bottle of nail polish and I think I might actually be able to do that with these.
I really like it but I am fond of dark nail polishes and a lot of the colors in this Apocalyptic Nail Kit are dark, bold or vampy in some way.
