I applied three coats over Essence XXL Nail Thickener. Now here I needed those three coats - badly! This was the first Picture Polish in a long time that gave me a challenge during application. Painting the polish on the nail is no issue - the formula is nice and flows easily on the nail. However once there and while drying it starts to look uneven, sheer and streaky. PLUS it pools. The second coat did not suffice to smooth the uneven first coat. Only the third coat could nearly extinguish the unevenness - you still can see some streakiness on my pinkie and my middle finger. It dries quickly and the loads and loads of shimmer provide an awesome satin shimmery finish.
Final thoughts: adding some drops of thinner probably will solve the issue with the application. Also the formula for sure is not unmanageable or horrid but just not as easily applicable as other polishes. For all of those who love a delicate, sweet girly light blue loaded with tons of shimmer will love Whimsy and if you invest a tad longer than for a normal slap-slap-and-go mani you will be more than happy with Whimsy :-)
Picture Polish Whimsy can be ordered with Llarowe, Harlow & Co and Pshiiit Boutiqe (currently it is sold out everywhere).
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
