On the Cult Nails Blog, Charming is described as "a sheer purple creme with a purple metallic shimmer that can be used for layering or you can use multiple coats for an opaque look." I'm not sure I would consider this a creme. It's more of a sheer jelly polish with a purple/blue/pink shimmer. It has such a glowing and squishy feel to it.
When I first went to apply this polish, I noticed it was much more sheer than expected. Before I made the dreaded mistake of VNL (visible nail line), I opted to back up and add some underwear. The swatches below are two coats over one thin coat of Essie Play Date. I added a coat of Seche Vite to top it off.
I'm not sure if it's my laptop or not, but this is reading more blue than violet. I'll be sure to add natural light picture tomorrow. Stay tuned!
