You still with me? Awesome, you made it through all those pictures but I could impossibly cut them down any further. I applied two coats of One Trick Pony over Essence XXL Nail Thickener. I first struggled a bit how much polish I need to load onto the brush to get an even first coat - too thin and you would run out of polish two third into painting your middle finger for example - too much and One Trick Pony might show a tendency to glop. It also becomes gooey if you go over the same area multiple times or paint too slowly but this is due to a huge plus: it is quick drying!!! However evenly and quickly applied the formula is perfect and causes no issues.
Final thoughts: this is one of my most intricate, complex and beautiful polishes I own. I just love the dark vibe of Crows Toes and the always slightly off the edge colors yet "grown up" if you know what I mean. The Collections are never hopping on a trend bandwagon and always stand apart from mainstream.
I ordered Crows Toes One Trick Pony with Llarowe.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
