Color Club Alter Ego is very different from colors I usually gravitate towards. Since it's still a bit chilly outside I thought I could get away with a dark color by itself. Alter Ego has a sheer deep purple base packed with gold and blue/ silver micro glitters. Depending on where and what light your nails are under the color will alter from purple to gold to silver. Its very sheer with the first coat but it applies well. I only did two coats and had very slight spottiness.
