I don't know about you but I am not seeing any purple going on here with New York Color's Underground Purple at all. That doesn't mean that I don't like it. This type of magneta is one of my favourite colours and one can always get away with wearing make up in this colour (if it's a pair of pants, not so much!). The formula for this polish was much much better than it was for Scene Stealer Grey and applied evenly with no streaking at all. But if you want absolute coverage, then you should use 3 coats instead of 2 as I have in the photo.
