This is such a pretty color. I was afraid it would be too sheer but this is 3 coats and its fine. In the photos it look a little bit streaky but in person I don't see that at all. In terms of color the last photo is the most accurate, its a light purple with some mauve in it and pink shimmer that is gorgeous in the sunlight. In indoor lighting its just really glowy. I think I'm going to get the blue version of this called Rain Check.
