This polish is very pretty. A purple with pink undertones unlike any other purple I have. This has the same fine shimmer to it that Smootch does, but the shimmer in this is more pink. Also this is not as sheer as Smootch and is my fav of the two. I included a side by side bottle comparison of the two as my last pic in this post, Smootch is on the left and Wild side is on the right. This is 3 coats, no base, no top.
