Orchid Steel Guitar is a metallic steel grey. In the bottle, it has a hint of warmth to it that doesn't translate onto the nail. It applied nicely with the formula being just the right consistency. It only needed two coats for opacity. I used CND Stickey base coat and Diamond Dry top coat. It wore all week, I applied it on Monday and it started to chip on Friday. My only complaint is that it doesn't seem to like quick dry top coats. I had to wait until the polish was all the way dry before applying my top coat or else it would "shrink" on me. This brand is exclusive to HEB grocery stores here in the southwest region of the US. This is my second color and I really like the brand.
