I don't really know how to describe this colour. It's a dark, jewel shimmery shade with a hint of red, brown, purple and even a flash of blue. This was two coats. Lovely colour, especially perfect for autumn. This is what I'm currently wearing, since around here summer is well and truly over. Actually, there were about a total of 15 hot days this summer, the most miserable summer I can remember! Wooly socks have been my friends for a month now.
