Wa~ I can't get enough of royal purples! Mimi belongs to these beautiful and sophisticated purples that I love. Mimi is part of the "Zoya Sparkle Collection" (2010). This collection is a synonym of huge love for a lot of girls here, I know. It combines a glass-fleck formula with a metallic glitter finish and this makes this collection a total standout for any sparkle lovers!
So Mimi is a very rich and purple, rather grape-toned, colour with a lot of pink microglitters. It's very shiny on its own and even more with a top coat, of course.
On some pictures, it may look blue but it's defenitively more purple. In fact, when I wear it on my nails, I only see the purple shade (and not the blue!). This might be due to the pinks glitters that shift blue to purple. I think Zoya did a great job with these pink glitters because I don't own much royal, deep purples that don't lean towards blue!
Here are some pictures. You can click on them to get larger pictures.

I used 2 thin coats here (for all the pictures). In the sun or under strong light, you can see it's not fully opaque. I should have used 3 coats or 2 thicker coats. And it might have been perfect!
Here is a close up to show the pink microglitters.
