This is a GREAT polish, I am very pleased to say the least. It went on very smooth, had good coverage and consistency It wasnt so thin that it flooded the cuticles but it wasnt so thick that it was sticky.
This polish has a great luminescence to it. It sparkles but also has depth. I think of it as more of a black/gold chrome polish. My boyfriend saw it in passing and said "wow" and I wasnt even showing him my nails!
But that was last night and today I got bored. I wanted to see it matte and I am SOOOO glad that I did because it has a rich-ness to it now that it did not have before. It became so smooth and velvety.
And because I couldnt leave well enough alone I used Shandy plate SH23 to put some sort of abstract gold design on it with Orly Luxe.
I know everyone is all in a tizzy for Crush on Lava, but in my opinion if you buy just one polish from the Crushed Chromes set make it Crush On Tin; you will not be disappointed!
