Anyway, Aqua Violet is pretty much just what it says - an aqua/violet duochrome. It was pretty sheer on my nail wheel swatch, so I layered it over Wet N Wild Black Creme.

I took a ton of photos trying to capture the purple here, but I couldn't do it. I'll try again later in the day or I might try at night to see if that helps.
Anyway, the application was pretty good - it was a little bit soupy but not too bad at all. I do have a little bit of bubbling that's not visible in the photos (and hardly visible in real life), but I'm not sure I blame the polish - I know I applied with too much polish on my brush a couple of times. This polish is a little bit brush-stroke-y but not enough to really bother me.
