So Vain is a lovely cafe cream neutral shade with very, very subtle shimmer. The shimmer is pretty much indiscernible to the naked eye on the nail but it gives the polish a little extra glow and dimension. It has a sheer formula that applies beautifully and evenly. I didn’t find any need for more than two coats (shown) but if you detest any hint of visible nail line than you may prefer three. I found Estée Lauder So Vain ($25 CAD) to be a really lovely neutral. It has a subtle warmth but didn’t look out of place against my cool toned skin. It is dark enough to avoid a mannequin hands look although this will of course vary with skintone. It dried quickly and has a nice gloss even without top coat.
