The camera simplifies the color, but in person Faraday is quite difficult to grasp. The naked eye sees an intriguing mix of lavender and taupe, or taupe shot through with the faintest lavender, or lavender laced with taupe. And then there is a lovely subtle shimmer, which reminds me of the "secret shimmer" in Chanel nail lacquer.
Really, this color pulls considerably more taupe in person than in these pictures. (It seems to be most taupe under indoor lighting, and most lavender in direct sunlight.) I would go so far as to classify it as a nude, as Messy Wands does so. The hint of lavender rescues the shade from dullness. Application is flawless and wear time is excellent, with minor tip wear after a full week.
I've never seen a color like this. If I were to purchase only one nail polish this spring, it would be Le Metier de Beaute Faraday.
