I applied three coats of Different Dimension It Rubs the Lotion On Its Skin over Essence Hardening Nail Base. The formula is perfect and each coat went on evenly and smoothly. Dry time is on the fast side and leaves the nails while dull though nearly smooth - and I had not a single glitter poking out - it was just slightly uneven. I added the shine with one coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer. This could be a Top Coat eater over the duration of a day but I haven't worn it for longer than needed for those swatches so I cannot say if a coat of Nail Patter Boldness Glitter Food might be needed to keep the high shine smooth finish throughout the day.
Final thoughts: YAY another heap of dried leaves polish - this autumn I am really into those glowing red-brownish glitters!!!
I ordered Different Dimension It Rubs The Lotion On Its Skin (oh that name - endlessly long) with Llarowe.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
