Gift of Sparkle is a red based purple with holographic glitter. The bottle shot shows a more red than the polish actually is. My photos below are more accurate. The formula is on the thick side, but that's probably because of the glitter. Application isn't too hard, but the thicker formula does make it a little trickier. Gift of Sparkle dries to a satin-y/matte finish. I didn't use any top coat for these photos, but I'm guessing you will need a couple of coats of top coat for a smooth texture. Polishes like this do tend to absorb top coat. I used Finger Paints top coat and 2 coats of polish for these photos.

I'm sure you can all tell why I like this polish. But surprisingly I like Winter Affair a little bit more.
