Perfect Purple?

As some of you know, I've been on a quest for a perfect purple. Define Perfect Purple:
- has some shimmer
- does not look black in a shadow.

I was so desperate that I've made my own. But now my franken has some serious competition: Essie Sexy Divide from a recent Essie Winter collection.

It is indeed perfect, or as close to perfect as it's possible.

Shimmer is distinctive enough to be visible, but not close to garish by any stretch of imagination:
It's a bit ironic that Essie came up with this beautiful color. Essie, The Kings of Nudes, The Sovereigns of Streaky Boredom Land?

I gotta give them a credit thou, from time to time they do give us, polish fans, amazing colors. So be thankful to the stars, or Essie's creative director, or whatever; and go get this one if you are a fan of purples.
