This is a very gorgeous metallic purple taupe.
Julep describes it as a metallic purple with shimmer.
I don't see the shimmer but the color is absolutely divine. It is most definitely a metallic purple. It has very high shine even without a top coat. The polish applies easily and is opaque in two coats.
It was very hard to get this in a true to color shot.
It started chipping about 2-3 days but its one of those prep lodges that chips gracefully if that make sense.
