This comforter was very pretty and shiny. My son loved it. The only issue I have is the second time I washed it the colors bled into each other. Not really sure how or why this happened as we washed it prior to putting it on his bed. Luckily there are so many colors in this comforter you cannot tell unless you are really looking at it. It was a bit disappointing because I really liked this comforter. However, we will not be returning it because my son loves it too much.
