NOTD - Essie Sexy Divide

This color is one of my winter staples.
Some of you already know that I love deep purple polishes, and this one gets my special love for sure.

Essie Sexy Divide

I admit that it looks more blue than purple in the first picture.
I still wanted to leave it as it is since it does look like that under certain lighting. 
(It is also true my camera pulls more blue in the automatic setting.)

under warmer lighting.

This is one of those polishes that looks creme from afar but the shimmer glows when the light hits.
It always reminds me of a dangerously sweet hard candies, too.
I would have named it something like.."Poisoned Candy".

The name "Sexy Divide" is a little hard for me to understand, but nowadays very few polish names are comprehensible anyway.
In my opinion, this particular color plays the borderline between sophistication and funkiness. (Hence the name?)
I can still wear this on my short trimmed nails and look professional. I'd look a bit edgy at the same time.

The wear and the application is very nice.
It covers well with two coats and lasts for about one week on me with minimal tip wears.

Have you tried Sexy Divide?
What is your favorite purple polish with subtle shimmer and high shine?
