Ultraviolet is a medium purple polish with red undertone. It is runny but the application is easy mostly thanks to wide, flat, round cut brush. Two thin coats are enough for the coverage. The polish dries a bit quicker than average and it's glossy. The producer says the polish lasts up to ten days without chipping but I really didn't feel like testing that. I can only say that I have worn this polish twice so far and both times it was undamaged after about 3 or 4 days which is how long I wore it. The pictures were taken in daylight and I have two coats without top coat.
