Smitten is a dark purple with blue and pink shimmer, though sometimes it appears more blue than purple. I really enjoy the complexity of color in this polish. In the shadow it looks like any dark polish so it's not too dramatic indoors, but when the light hits it at the right angle it has an amazing shimmer. As with the other Confetti polishes I've tried, application was smooth and flawless though this one definitely needed three coats for the color to build. So glad I bought this, and for only $1.99!
