I decided to go simple for today and went with Revlon Scandalous (previously know as Facets of Fuchsia). I used 3 thin coats of the polish for these pictures just to make sure everything was covered. I followed it with 1 coat of top coat. It wasn't gritty, but from the pictures I probably should have used another one.
You can see the shininess better in the sunlight photo, though I think the shade photo is a bit more true to color.
