Initially I thought Castle On A Cloud would be a nice lavender shade, but after application (and a closer inspection) it tends to lean more on the plum-grey, almost an off white front. In the bottle the polish also contains silver shimmers, but it isn't noticeable at all once applied to the nails.
Being one of the first Face Of Australia polishes I've used, I'm very impressed with the formula and longevity. I'm not going to lie, I didn't think the polish would be up to par with the likes of OPI or Essie but I'm glad to say that it has proven me wrong. Castle On A Cloud is surprising quite opaque, needing only two coats (you could get away with one if you apply it evenly). The consistency wasn't clumpy nor streaky and it lasted (with the help of Seche Vite) 4 - 5 days before I eventually removed it.
Overall I am thoroughly impressed and I'm kicking myself that I didn't pick up more of these polishes when they were on sale for $0.75c at Kmart a couple of months ago! And unfortunately I don't think many places stock the FOA Pastel Collection anyone as it was limited edition. This is why you should never, ever, ever pass up a good bargain but I digress. FOA polishes retail for $4.95 but they can usually be snatched up for a cheaper price as they are always on sale.
Also, please let me know if you have any nude/office-appropriate polishes that I should try! I definitely need more in my collection!
