Color Club's Pretty In Platinum is a greyed silver and has very fine shimmer particles. After wearing the bright red last week, I wanted something a little less "in your face". The formula was slightly thick, needing two coats to achieve opacity. I used CND Stickey base coat and Out The Door top coat. The color is still on my nails and it is day 4. So far, no chips and minor tip wear. These days, I barely have time to change my polish, so I appreciate a manicure that will last.
