The photo is really color accurate. Elodie is kind of bright - not overwhelmingly so, but she's definitely brighter than I anticipated. If you do not have Elodie, you need her! You can buy her here (it is my share the love link).
This photo was taken with flash, indoors. It's been dreadfully cloudy and raining this entire week so taking photos outside hasn't been an option. Hopefully the weather shapes up and realizes I have some swatching to do, so I need a little sun! How can I possibly show you DS Extravagance...indoors?
Before I applied Elodie for my manicure, I did a pedicure..it wasn't until a few days later that I realized the color I chose for my pedicure is almost a dead dupe for Zoya's Elodie, and I bought it on sale for 1.50! So now I have Elodie, her Zoya dupe Heidi, and this polish. More on that later. (:
