Sweet Violet is a silvery purple toned frost. This finish is similar to Ulta3 - Jelly Bean. The first coat was quite sheer but it builds up nicely. I probably could have gotten away with two coats but I did three trying to even out my brush strokes. If you are careful with the brush strokes they don't show up. How do you all feel about frosts? I don't mind this one, I hope I'm not slowly starting to like frosts eeek! I don't think I am, I think this and Jelly bean must be the exceptions.
